Where to get a strong clevis?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Ok I have to admit I have a problem, (I know...)

I'm working on my latest Thunderchicken that uses servos capable of generating 400 in-oz of torque. All the connections use a standard 4-40 clevis at the servo end. Due to the geometry I cannot use a ball link. Does anyone sell a heavy duty clevis and rod assembly?

The klett 4:40 ones are pretty tough I use them on my Úlan with no issues they snap on tight and short piece of fuel tubing adds some security

They are black nylon with a metal pin that snaps in place.
