Trailer Washers

Hi all.

I'm doing a bit of work on my Trailer at the mo, for example I'm replacing all the bolts that hold it together as they are very rusty, and am hoping to swap out all the rusty roller washers and split pins for Stainless ones.

I'm currently stocking up on everything I'll need, and am considering having a batch of Stainless washers made up as I can't find them in the right size anywhere. 54mm OD, 26mm ID, 2mm thick.
Unless anyone knows where to find them, or even plated Mild steel ones at a reasonable cost.
By the way, I have an inbuilt problem with going anywhere near a rip-off indespension dealer.

Nasher.

Thanks Pete, thats very helpful, I can now broaden my search to very short lengths of thick wall pipe.

Will stainless washers survive if they are up against a load of galvanised stuff? (like the rest of your trailer!)

You may actually be better going for some "traditional" zinc plated, but from a reputable source as opposed to overpriced washers that may have vaguely passed within 100 yds of some galvanised fencing on the way to a certian retial outlet........

Thanks Guys

Unfortunately I think the 4.4mm rules the standard ones out, as getting the Split Pins in can be a bit tight with the 2mm thick washers.

I've asked a company I use for work to quote making a batch in Stainless.
They don't come anywhere near any Galvanised steel as the shafts are Ali.

I have 51mm dia x 2mm 316 plates that we have laser cut for blanking the ends of tube handrails. Trouble is I ain't got a 26mm punch to put the hole in the middle. That would be 50 quid minimum

Hi Andy, I would need a complete set, plus half a dozen spares - 70 in total

Managed to chock the bow of the RIB up this evening and remove the front swing bar and roller assemblies with the boat still on the trailer.

Going off the idea of Stainless now.

Think I'm going to stick with the Galv ones I've got as they are in better shape than I thought, will just need a few spares then.

I'm going to drill the arms out to use long roll pins with plenty of grease at the backs of the rollers, but am struggling to find 4mm x 35mm Split pins on the shelf in Pompey area for the outsides of the rollers. Need to try and get the front set finished off this weekend so only have tomorrow afternoon to find the split pins.
Cromwells are usualy very good, but don't sell split pins at all, and neither do Priority fasteners.

Are there any Engineers suppliers in Fareham open on a Saturday Morning?

Nasher.
