      Hi,
      do M5 T-Joints/Coupler nuts exist?... If so, what are they called please?...

      I have found M5 coupler nuts that can connect 2 M5 threaded bars/bolts. But I want to connect 3 bars in a T formation.

      So far all I can think to do is get a 2 bar coupler, and drill out the middle and tap it to M5.... But that's not going to be easy to get right without a drill press, and good tap; because I want to use stainless steel.

      Only if you have a business so far as I can see. First they say you need an account. So I made one, for a "CAD User", the other option is a business account. As if the only people who would like to buy their parts are businesses and CAD users lol. It's absurd. I made a CAD account, tried to buy something and they said I needed a business account. I gave up. Life it too short to deal with such silliness.

      If i need such a part, I'm just going to use the "M5 Equal Tee Female Threaded Adaptor" from elsewhere.

      Found them nice an cheap here:
