Threaded inserts for deck

Hey folks,

I need to get some inserts, I'm waiting on ullman getting back to me for their version below, has anyone seen these or similar anywhere in stainless?



These are circa 20mm dia and 28mm long FYI, something similar would do.

Hi Paul I think Pikey would be a good reference point for you.

Do they make inserts?

None in that sheet will do unfortunately.

I don't know how much the ullman inserts cost yet but I'm dreading to find out!

I only ever found ones in 304 stainless (eBay I think), but they seem to be holding out ok. Just be careful that you don't overload them as they are only as strong as a big screw in ply. Use plenty of them and we'll spread out.

These are not like the ebay specials unfortunately, these things are huge to take the loads of a suspension seat. I can't find anything close to 20mm dia with M8 internal. I will also be bonding these with epoxy so I'm thinking will be plenty strong enough.

Im planning to use 8 or maybe 10 per seat. Ribcraft think Ullman only say use 6 per seat so I'm going more.

De Ja fun..... ulman seats have 6 fittings I believe.

As per previous thread, there are other threaded fixings that might be stronger. I really like the look of those fixings but if you google the non marine ones they seem to indicate they are for medium duty loads,

Just about to fix some suspension seats to my foam core deck next week, I'll be bonding M8 big head fastners into epoxy. Although I can't calculate the difference, the big head bonded in epoxy will have more surface area "grip" than the thread area of those male things.
