Magball ends, where to buy?



  • I'm looking for some of the Haydn magball ends for a project I'm working on. To be specific, I'm after the balls with a hex and a male thread. I have 10mm balls with a female thread, but without a means of tightening them they are not very useful to me.

    The Haydn balls seem ridiculously hard to find except directly from Haydn, or as an addon from the duet shop with Haydn arms. Would you guys be willing to sell them seperately, or does anyone know of an alternative source for these?

    Also, does anyone know what the thread is, and how long it is, and what the diameter of the balls are?

    Thanks muchly



  • You could get some 4mm studs/all thread for your 10mm balls.

    For the Hayden's, just order them directly from Hayden.

    They are 3/8" balls, 3mm x 10mm stud.

    I have considered using a male thread to turn my 10mm balls into a similar thing, but it is the hex I need. I could add a nut, but the result is not very professional and also requires some form of glue to stop it rotating. To top it all off, they will be in contact with my heated bed and so a single all metal solution is very appealing.

    I'm also based in the UK, so buying from Haydn is not practical, hence why I'm asking 🙂



  • Please email info at duet3d dot com and we will quote you for a set of ball studs on their own.
