Our existing 300 series SS plungers from McMastercar #8476A43 are silver plated as Atm2 shows.

Problems:  1, they become magnetized after years being close to the magnets

                     2, they oxidize by time so it is hard to turn them


I looked around to replace them.

Titanium body, nose and beryllium copper spring. None magnetic for UHV enviorment.

Can be made in 7 weeks at an UNREASONABLE $169.00 ea at quantity of 50

 In order to get a better price from Vlier's Tom Chen I changed Ti body back to SS304L-siver plated and music wire spring. The price is still ~$120 ea. at quantity 50

I will talk to Mike G about modifying the  McMaster plunger with a hex nut.
