wedge mounts from Advanced Antivibration Components (AAC) are designed for
precision leveling for heavy loads. Two mounts are designed for clean-room use and
two for general industrial applications. Two gentle inclines on the wedge
produce a large lifting force with small input of torque. During the level
adjustment, the head of the bolt does not move axially. This design improves
the operation and safety of using this product.
mounts, V11Z90MHW, have a load capacity range of 5608 (12364) to 7138
kgf (15736 lbf). The body is made of cast iron and the leveling adjustment bolt
is made of zinc plated steel. Their applications include: large air compressors,
rolling machines, transfer machines, gas turbines, nuclear reactors and
buildings and structures.
A make-your-own Star Wars Sith Lightsaber hilt is heftier and better-looking than most others out there, according to its maker, Sean Charlesworth. You can 3D print it from free source files, and there's even a hardware kit available -- not free -- so you can build one just in time for Halloween.
