just got some of the micro servo's for a small boat can somebody point me to a suppler of clevis joints as the standard one's are to large and the pins are to large to go through the holes in the servo arms

Hi Jacko,
So what's the problem!?😉
Drill out the servo arms to match.
Or; forget the clunky commercial clevis pins and simply make a push rod from spring steel rod. Don't let the manufacturers dictate to you!!
Use your imagination; and a couple of pairs of pliers 😁
Cheers, Doug 😎

Agree with Doug. I use bicycle wheel spokes. Got an old wheel from my local bicycle shops scrap pile for free.
Got enough rods now for the rest of my life!
