I have an interposer card that I need to rebuild using the C6-F15090 F connector (attached image) from autosplice,
BUT the lead time is 26 weeks with a minimum order quantity of 250kunits.
I only need about 2000 pins for the build.
Is there anyone out there know of a vendor of a second source or a work around.
Thanks for your time.

Where I come from (and, I think, where most people come from) an F-connector is a coaxial RF connector, not what the drawing shows. Regardless, it looks like that's a pretty specific pin; I've never seen anything like it. So, you might be stuck. If youre really desperate, you could look for a parts broker.

thanks for the suggestion, right now, not sure what I will do but I will continue looking for options
 

Explore making them. Visit machinists; show them a sample, maybe can be stamped. Find proper bronze or copper sheet, do you know what a nibbling tool is or ever seen one ? Perhaps a machinist can make a custom manual nibbling tool. Or a die to stamp them.

Top left, could be modified, shortened, thinned... You have to spend more time on chinese manufacturers catalogs.

Is this a bare pin that gets soldered edge-on to a card and
then plugs down onto its mate? I don't see anything about
a connector body. I am imagining that "F connector" refers
to the stamped shape.

The P/N does not find me anything on DuckDuckGo. There
are only 3 listed US distributors (none of them on my radar)
and Digi-Key has only a couple of their products. But on the
Autosplice "Products" page, stamped connectors, all the way
down...

Call this guy. They want you to.

As another note, I have been able to rework edge-on soldered
SMA connectors with a similar-looking attach feature. So don't
rule out asking one of the nice ladies on the soldering line,
whether they could pull you a jarful of these pins off a "dead
soldier".

Thanks Externet, I am exploring making these using a local shop.

thanks dick_freebird, Unfortunately Autosplice is the vendor with long times and large minimum order. Fortunately, i found a way forward. Best Regards
