Corp.'s new series of self-retaining, T-1 LED mounting spacers are designed
for uniform and perpendicular LED positioning and can reducing assembly costs. The
self-aligning LED spacers feature internal retention "teeth" that secure spacers onto LED leads, prior to assembly on PCB's.
The design also eliminates the possibility of LED lead shorting by separating
and retaining component leads while inserting into a PCB. No special tools are
required to preassemble LED's to spacers. The new spacers feature 0.020 inch (0.5 mm) legs incorporated into
the molded Nylon 6/6 structure to serve the dual purpose of heat dissipation
and easy post-solder cleaning. Overall height
of the spacers range from 0.120 to 0.925 inch (3.0 to 23.5 mm). Keystone also has "Universal" and
"Self-aligning" LED spacer mounts for Tri-lead and Bi-lead T-1 and T-1 3/4
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.
