Standard Type of Thread for Barrel Bolt?

Postby SomeOldCodger64 » Wed Apr 01, 2020 11:37 am

Is the thread in a barrel bolt a standard type? I've lost one out of a bed in a set of 8 and don't want to buy one through the post to find it's no good. I believe it's called an 'M6 barrel bolt' picture attached...

I've measured it as best I can with a ruler and it seems to be 10mm dia., 14mm length and about 6mm between centre of the thread and the end of the bolt, (the end at the opposite end to the cross thread that is).

Thanks in advance for any help :)

I am not sure. As per your measurement, it sounds like an M6 barrel bolt.

Thanks. I've ordered 4 of them anyway so, hopefully they'll do the job :)
