Who else makes titanium turnbuckles?

With SWB retiring. Where is everyone getting turnbuckles?

SWB is still going... You can still order off their site, and get excellent service... apparently until June or so.
I just made an order last week and my products arrived very quickly... Just an FYI there.

The H9 tip is a good one too, as we might all be looking for a new supplier.

I'm hoping someone takes over SWB really, I've got nothing but great service and perfect components from them, and it's hard to see a good company go. They're one of the best.

I know that guy just wants to move on though... as we all do at some point. So lets see who else is out there at this point.

No question about the quality of SWB products and service. Be great to see a company like Du-Bro pick up and manufacture SWB products. American made

I would bet Du-Bro would already have the machinery and tooling needed to do it too.

If DuBro or somebody picks it up that would be great. I'll also miss their turnbuckle cable tensioners and servo arms.


I know there are alternatives (EF and Secraft) but I've used SWB for decades and am partial to them

Likewise, I've tried other brands and always go back to SWB. Will be stocking up.

Hopefully Dubro, Horizon Hobby (Hangar 9), or some other RC company buys SWB Mfg. out.

Good grief. So bummed to hear this. Just ordered my first stuff from them several weeks ago. Just amazing parts. What a loss to giant scale that’s going to be.
