probably more of a thought experiment than anything else.. figured it
might make a fun topic for discussion.. been thinking about it past week
i'll spare everyone the long story but basically:
MANUAL nail feeder.. nails are 3/4" long, maybe 70 or 80 thou wire, have
a big head (0.2").
they don't really need to be "fed" as opposed to 'sorted' -- pointy side
down / head up.
i suppose this is usually done with a vibratory bowl feeder thing.
i'm thinking something manual like two pieces of sheet metal spaced 0.090"
apart that rises up out of a bowl of nails. everytime one pulls the lever
(or whatever) maybe it picks up 10-20 nails all in the right orientation.
then they could be "scooted" off and the blade drops down ready
to pick more up.
that make sense?
any other "fun and clever" ways to attain the same end?
