Hi

Somewhere, recently, I saw a simple drawing with a dimension that is a constant value. This drawing shows a T-nut that will fit through the T-slot on a slotted table and this t-nut when turned (by the clamping bolt) will rotate only 90deg thus "locking" the nut in the slot.

So, the T-nut has end corners cut at an angle that will allow the T-nut to rotate clockwise but the remaining portion of the T-nut end presses against the sides of the slot in the table.

Kind of like this...

The dimension is the constant that is used to calculate the length of the side, or how much longer to make the T-nut so that it performs the action described above. I remeber the first digit of the value, it was 1 point something

Did I see it here on the forum, or was it in a magazine? I knew I should have written down that value!
