Animatronic Eye Mechanism -- Help please

  1. May 30, 2016 #1
    Hello All. I'm searching for this part and also have video footage of it in motion. I cannot find it to finish the eye mechanism because I don't know what it's called. Can anyone tell me what it is? I would greatly appreciate it. Even companies dealing in such parts as well as metal fittings have steered me wrong. Thanks in advance.

    video link: start at 35 second mark.

    I would think it is some kind of ball-socket coupling, or universal joint coupling.

    What are you calling it?

    Nice video by the way.
