GN 319.5 Revolving Ball Knobs, Long Shoulder Type, with Stainless Steel Tapped Shoulder

Another great new product recently introduced to our line is GN 319.5 Revolving Ball Knobs, Long Shoulder Type, with Stainless Steel Tapped Shoulder, in inch and metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant revolving knobs can be utilized instead of revolving handles, i.e. with handwheels. The tapped shoulder allows the revolving ball knob to be mounted from the underside via a screw or bolt, which can then be easily mounted to sheet metal in a variety of thicknesses, flat bar, or castings, to create a quick cranking or turning mechanism.

The hand piece is black phenolic plastic (Duroplast PF). The tapped shoulder is stainless steel, European Standard No. 1.4305 (American Standard Series 303), matte shot-blasted finish. Also available is a version with stainless steel threaded spindle.
