Looking for a lever nut

I'm looking for a quick-release #8 36-tpi (metric is fine) nut.

I want the quick-release lever-type that cams down a little. Most of them have the bolt/post/shaft attached to the lever, but I need the nut/threaded/female side in the lever end

I don't know what to call this thing, let alone where I can find it

Cheers

Do you mean something like this kind of quick release lever?

It's called a Nylock or nylon locking nut. https://www.amazon.com/U-Turn-Fasten.../dp/B07H742C6T

​​​​​​Any bike shop should have a spare lying around or even give or sell you a complete skewer. BTW, the threading on most qr skewers is M5x0.8mm and is close but not identical to #10-32.

If you need a #8-36 nut, then how can metric be fine? A M4x.7 might be close, but probably so sloppy you won't get to tighten it much.

Don't know if they all do, but our local ACE hardware has drawers with many different nuts, bolts, etc. I've been surprised at what I was able to find there. And I can buy just one or two instead of several in a package, as at a big box hardware store.

Close, but I was thinking more of a cam lever

Cheers

An M4 is also fine. I'm looking for something about the same size

All of the skewers I've seen have the cam lever connected to the post/rod/bar. I'm looking for a cam lever on the nut/threaded/female end

Cheers

Are you replacing one that came original on the bike? What make year and model bike is it. That might give someone a clue to helping you find one.

Have you contacted Sunny to see if you can get a replacement?

I know there are parts lists online. If you know the model number and can get the PN of the missing part that would be my first step.

No, this is not a replacement part. I'm building a jig with an adjustment and that sort of fastener would be best. I don't know what to call it or where to get it. I figured y'all would know where to get them

Now that I understand what you're looking for, they are called "cam handles". McMaster Carr has them here https://www.mcmaster.com/handles/han...threaded-hole/
