Push-Pull Controls:
We specialize in limited production, special application controls. It is not at all unusual for us to make one of something.The typical program is for about 30 sets per year, in four different types. Most of our work has been aviation related.
Controls are available in a very wide verity of sheath and termination combinations. Our cables have been used for applications ranging from simple seat lock release to engine control. We have some panel mount types available: 1/4 turn to lock, simple pull, adjustable friction lock, also a panel mount fine pitch vernier - available in 20, 28, and 32 TPI. It does not have a release button.
Sheath diameters range from .1 to .25. Cores available are solid spring temper, semi-rigid strand, or flexible wire rope.
Available core terminations are almost limitless; whatever you need, we will make it for you. The same is true for the sheath terminations. We have drawings for about 500 different type and sizes, ranging from simple threaded stud to hydraulic coupling type.

Pricing: a one-of special using standard parts is going to be about $400. A special with non-standard fittings will be about $875.

Even if you need one special, call us. We don't turn away small jobs. We can provide controls with almost zero lost motion.

Here is a nice control termination: a 5/16-24 bulkhead fitting, an .082
core, and a 3/16 ball end. This control is all CRES, except for the knob,
which is anodized Alum.
