Can anyone identify what type of Flanges theses are please

Can anyone identify what type of Flanges theses are please

(OP)
HI everyone, I am a newbie "L Plates attached" I am wondering if anyone here can identify what type of flanges have been used here and where they might be available to purchase?(see Photo/s). I am referring to the gold coloured flanges that attach an inner fixed tube to a rotatable outer tube (So the rotating tube is sleeved on the fixed tube and connected by the end flanges) I am wondering if they might have bearings or are they steel on steel, or any other way of attachment? If any smart puppy out there knows or could provide a link to this type of part, I'd really appreciate your help.

Thanks for looking,

Chris

how about contacting the original equipment mfg? no better place to get your answer.

your joking are you? at least show a close up of the flange - and a few dimensions might just help, like diam., number of bolts / PCD etc.

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)

Sorry Guys that is all I have to go on. I believe the tube is about 5mm and an estimated size of 90mm for the internal, maybe 100-130mm for the ext. tube? I saw this attachment at a fuel station on a tractor implement and thought taking some photo's would help me to find out what they are, I don't have a brand of the implement or anything.

Say again, whats your name?

RE: Can anyone identify what type of Flanges theses are please

The gold colored flanges look to be brass bearings to allow rotation of the internal tube.

My first thought: this is not a normed part. My second thought is that I agree with others: no more measures, no more information.
