A place where restoration project-type threads can go to avoid falling off the main page in the WIX hangar. Feel free to start threads on Restoration projects and/or warbird maintenance here. Named in memoriam for Gary Austin, a good friend of the site and known as RetroAviation here. He will be sorely missed.

Hi, we need a couple of AN224-3 fasteners for a part we're overhauling. These are part of a "press-stud" type arrangement. We only need two, but cannot locate any. Anyone have or know of some? Any ideas very welcome.

That spec is obsolete and I can't find a crossover to a later NAS spec. Can you provide a photo or a better description? What are they used for?

They're used for attaching control column boots to parts - in this case the control column boot for a P-51 - these attach to the main control lock casting bracket. These part attach to the bracket by way of a 100 degree countersunk screw. The boots contain the second part of the clip which then is pushed onto the AN224.
Hope that makes sense!

A commercial quality snap similar to these is what most use-http://www.mcmaster.com/#fabric-snaps/=sc9z9a
Otherwise search ebay US and UK might get you the lift the dot stud types.http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid= ... &_from=R40

Thank you gentlemen, that's a great help. Certainly helps plug the information gap.
