Default Looking for 14mm aluminium post

Hi everyone, I'm looking for aluminium posts, with a lenght of 14mm.

13mm or 15mm might be okay so if you have ideas, post your link here !

Of course I'm looking for the M3 type, threaded on both ends.

Color is secondary but black, silver/grey or red is preferred.

Thanks a lot !

Thanks a lot, yeah that's definitely something a DIY guy like you would have in his bookmarks. The xray ones might do. Funnily enough I was checking out your TC6C thread earlier this afternoon to see if I had missed an update.
Anyone else ?

Don't know how long they are:

I'll be getting a pair in the next couple days, though. I'll measure them if I remember.

EDIT: It's only 12mm

Thanks ! Actually, 12mm seems my best option at the moment, the lenght of the standoff I'mm looking for will depend on other factors so it's always good to know. Incredible how messed up they look out if that's out of the package.

or these

and putting the appropriate amount of spacers on them?

You can get PCB standoffs in pretty much any size, although they are typically brass. For example, go here and filter by M3 thread:
