    It is amazing how long it can take to do a simple thing...

    I'm trying to find a manufacturer, part number or supplier for the part in the attached picture. I call it a grounding post, or a terminal post, but not amount of searching using those terms has succeeded.

    If you know what this part is and know where I can buy one (online), please put me out of my misery!

    Yes, sorry, that would be a helpful number! It is 0.56" (14.2mm) long. I'm not looking for this exact part, but anything similar to it - i.e. screw thread on one end, solder turret at the other.

    Sounds like you got what you need, but here's more info:
    There are 3 main types of your terminal. You have the screw-in type.
    They make solder-in, and press-in types.
    Mfgrs are Cambion, Keystone, Mill-Max, and a few others.
    The most helpful thing I can say, is try to get the stud size you need for your board,
    as there are several sizes available.

    No. These are used as ground connections on the outside of test equipment. When they get old they discolor and can no longer be used in new equipment. Thanks anyway.
