Thanks for the tip. I won the auction but haven't received the swivel yet. Thanks again.

I still would like to find a new ball hook for my steel everlast or maybe some of those plastic caps that are on the de ville 13 swivel. I shortened my original a little too much and keep losing the bag. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

...I might have a steel ball, eyebolt and S-hook made up, but I will have to check, I know I have the ball and eyebolt but I don't think I finished making the S-hook...Ralph

I do not know if this link has been posted on the forum or not. But to be sure I am posting it here. It is a ball bearing supply house. I have used them a few times for various projects. i recently received 3- 3/4" brass ball bearings drilled. plan to use them to make a jump rope. Here is the link if anybody could use it.

They have Delrin bearing balls as well. Now I am curious if a Delrin ball would make my SwivelTek better? Since the SwivelTek has a Delrin seating collar in it? I dunno yet

The problem you might have would be the weight of the ball, That was the problem with the Everlast plastic swivel, The ball was to light with the cheap lightweight eyebolt and S-hook, (this is what made the ball assembly float in the housing and made it more difficult for beginners) Of course it was made in china so it was crap, But the plastic base of the everlast was pretty good, All you had to do with those swivels was swap out the plastic ball and cheap lightweight eyebolt and S-hook, or you could just swap out the plastic ball if you couldn't get your hands on a better quality eyebolt & S-hook.

I see your point about the light weight of a Delrin ball being an issue. My thoughts were only of the (possibly more ) smooth action of a Delrin ball. Now I am thinking of a brass eye bolt with a brass hook to have added weight. Of course the brass items would have to be made. (Just thinking out loud).

Brass is too soft, it will wear out relatively quickly. Steel is the only option for the hook and eye, you can use brass for the ball tho.

Good points made and will be factors in the event that I test a Delrin ball in a SwivelTek with the Delrin fitting. And to know it would be of a temporary use.. All this just for a few grins
