Hey Speedbaggers need some help

Does anyone out there in Speedbag land have a extra Everlast screw in base laying around collecting dust they want to send my way? Went on the Everlast site and you can't buy the base, I got a extra swivel but no way to connect it to a platform. I figured if there are any around this would be the place to ask.

I need the base with the everlast threads so I can screw in the metal ballhook swivel or the everlast chainlink swivel. Thanks if I could make one I would

PM me your address, I'm in San Francisco at the moment (been traveling for 2 weeks so I haven't been online much) but I believe I've got a spare at the house.

Actually, a Better goal is to use the metal ball & hook, which will work fine with a plastic base plate. I have several of those. You need the hex (allen) wrench to get back out the set screw than take the hook shaft out of the metal ball. Put it back together inside the plastic ballhook housing (remove plastic ball and replace with metal ball) and it will work fine. I don't notice any difference in the "action" of a plastic base and metal ball vs any other ballhook arrangement. But that metal shank smacking the plastic housing is a whole lot less noisy than the metal base. you can see and hear the metal ball in the plastic base in this video.

In my arrangement described above, you can just set the metal base plate with the internal threads off to the side. The threaded part will also work with an Everlast chainlink swivel.

OK. Now I'm confused as to which part you need. Do you want (1) the threaded part that "comes off" with the bag, (and screws into the base) or do you want (2) the actual BASE that is attached to the board. ??

I thought you wanted a #1 with a ballhook, but now it sounds like you need a #2. (base plate for board)

I've got several of both (just take an Everlast metal Ballhook swivel apart....)
