Is anyone out there making the fasteners that Alex Black used to make? They would have a grub screw threaded in the bolt to clamp the cable

I just ordered to make a few. But can't say how long he will need to finish the lot.

I'm making some, have several completed, and am making a few more for stock. Pretty easy with the right tools, AND anealing the screws before machining! (I'm avoiding the Stainless variety due to how tough it is to machine.)
