  • Adjustable clamp spacer (pics)

    While tidying some junk boxes I came across a stash of perforated brass disks used to label keys. Unless I intend to open a prison (hmm, the grandkids *do* need a place to play), the supply was far more than I'll ever use. So, I decided to make an adjustable clamp spacer per the design one sees occasionally in "Model Engineer".

    The disks are stacked on a threaded rod which is countersunk and soldered into the bottomost disk. A knurled thumbscrew on the top allows tensioning the stack. In use, one merely swings aside the unneeded disks such that the remaining 'stack' is the proper height for the clamp.



    Here's a photo of the device in use on my chunky finger plate.

    Regards, Marv

          Now all I have to come up with is a project that requires a bunch of
          discs with an off center hole so I can have a gross or so extras. :-)

            Watch out Lew.

            Nothing "Gross" allowed on this forum - that's "OT".

            The OT "thought police" will getcha - and its pretty miserable in the "OT -solitory cell" that I reckon I'm gonna end up in.
