We’ve recently had a number of customers requesting stainless steel standoffs of varying lengths and diameters. Typically, we make standoffs up to 2 inches in diameter and 6 inches in height, so some of these custom jobs have been real treats for us.
For all of them, we used solid 304 alloy stainless steel. Each standoff was weighty in its own right, almost comparable to dumbbells. We also applied a light brushed finished and drilled and tapped both ends with a 5/16-18 thread, approximately 3/4 of an inch deep.
Here are a few details and photos about each job:
3×4 Inch Stainless Steel Standoff
The first was a 3-inch diameter standoff. From what we can gather, a 3-inch diameter is kind of unique in the standoff industry so we were excited to be able to do it. Each one weighed about 8 pounds.
2×12 Inch Stainless Steel Standoff
The second job called for a 2-inch diameter and a 12-inch height. Like the standoffs above, these were quite heavy and actually required some muscle to transport.
1×5 inch Stainless Steel Standoff
The third standoff job required a 1-inch diameter on a 5-inch barrel which isn’t so unusual, but still a nice change of pace for our staff in the shop.
If you have questions about a custom standoff project you’re working on, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 631-750-3000.
