Universal Joint Manufacturer/Supplier

    Does anyone know a manufacturer or supplier of joints like the one shown here:


    The main feature I'm looking for is the counterbores at the ends that allow mounting to a flat plate. Almost all the ones I've found are made for connecting shafts.

    So the size and power handling capacity doesn't matter? I would suggest that's usually more important and that getting an adaptor made would be the easy part.

    Right, the size can be anywhere around 1/4in or 6mm in diameter. I'm mainly using these as bearings and not to transmit torque, as part of a Stewart platform/hexapod motion platform.
