MATERIALS/FASTENING: A new series of metric leveling mounts from All Metric Small Parts (aMsp) swivels 15 degrees to all sides of the centerline to adjust to uneven surfaces. Uses include leveling machine tools, electronic racks, benches and more. A jam nut is part of the leveling assembly. The mounts, identified as the MVAYNAM and MVAYNFM Series, have isolator pads which vary in diameter from 40 to 80 mm. These anti-slip pads are made of fiberglass-reinforced Polyamide and their height ranges from 93 to 180 mm. The aMsp eStore shows single unit, as well as quantity prices, for these handwheels, which are stocked for overnight delivery worldwide. Applications include use in linear motion and rotary table positioning. 3-D CAD models are available.
