Default M5 Solder Lugs - Of All Things

I have hunting for some 90 degree M5 solder lugs for a filter recapping project I am starting. Digikey did not have them nor can I find them elsewhere.

If you have some it would make a swell Christmas present! Or if you want please share where you got them.

I have absolutely no idea what a M5 solder-lug is. Could you post a pix or drawing? E

Solder lugs should be common enough. Are you specifically searching for metric? Try looking for just solder lugs without the M5. Solder terminals maybe. Most of the ones I see are in imperial sizes, in other words, they fit a #10 screw. M5 is roughly the size of a #10, isn't it?

And as to right angle, if you mean bent in the middle instead of flat, well, you have pliers.

Keystone makes a variety, the type 905 is referred to below.

Mouser sells stock 534-905-10, which fits a #10 stud. WOuld that work?

Just go to the hardware store and buy some solderless (crimp - type) connectors for the right wire size. Then cut the plastic off, crimp, and add some solder to make it secure and reduce interference. Done in two minutes with no shipping costs.

Most helpful information. Just an hour ago I ordered these:
Solder Tags Hot-tinned brass,M5 / 2BA (100 Pack)(CN157) | eBay

And these:

I think a #10 will work.
Did not need that many but hey now I have an excuse to start future projects.

Did that for some projects but this one requires a different approach. If I could post a pic of the amp at this time you would see what I mean. I have a ground bar that runs through two of the caps in one continouous string. Can not use your application but thanks for the input. I just did this very thing for my tweeter connections! (Where were you then? )

Hey, I just signed up to the site to learn about vintage transistors and stumbled on your post. Maybe I can help next time.
