I bought a used overhead boom pole and it was missing the 5/8 stud to mount the light to. I haven't had any luck finding one as the boom has the quarter turn clamp that measures about 13/16 inside diameter. So what I need is a 13/16 to 5/8 adapter. Here is a pic of what I need if anyone can help

It has to be 13/16 on one end though for the clamp to work. I can't find any marking on the stand and he said it came from cowboy studio but they don't have parts. Maybe its missing another extension tube?

Check Ebay. I get all my lighting gear there.

Where did you get the picture of the part you're missing?

Is this what the end of the boom pole looks like (minus the stud, of course):

I measured the diameter of the bottom portion of a stud I removed from a C-clamp:

The clamp looked like this one:

Filing off the raised lip around the bottom edge of the stud would allow it to fit in your boom stand but, frankly, I'm not sure I would trust the combination. The 13/16" portion of the stud really isn't long enough to instill much confidence.

Please show us some photos of what you have so that we can understand what you need.

If the spigot (what you photographed in the original post) is what's missing, you really should go to the manufacturer of the system to get one that fits and attaches properly. The 5/8" diameter spigot is a standard size but the part that typically mounts to a light stand, boom arm, etc., is not a standard size.

I have contacted cowboy studio and they don't have parts. The piece pictured above is one I took out of another stand that is to small. Here is the boom end.

If I understand the photo, you need a 5/8" spigot with an extension that can fit in the clamp.

I doubt very seriously that you will find such a part commercially unless you could locate the actual manufacturer of your boom arm. My guess is that Cowboy Studio doesn't make anything.

As an alternative, it would be very easy for any machine shop to create what you want out of 1" brass rod. I can steer you to a place to get the brass if you'd like.
