DIN 6320 Jig Feet

To our ever-burgeoning line of standard components for industry, we have recently added series DIN 6320 Jig Feet, in metric sizes.

These RoHS compliant feet are normally used in jig construction, if neither a self-aligning support nor an axial adjustment is required. They are made of 1.0718 steel rather than quenched and tempered steel as specified in the official DIN 6320 standard sheet. The feet range in height from 10 to 50 mm, and thread sizes from M6 to M12.

WN 302 and 304 Straight Plastic Adjustable Levers

J.W. Winco recently introduced our new Straight Nylon Plastic Adjustable Levers in eight types, in inch and metric sizes. They include WN 302 tapped, blind bore and stud versions with steel components, and WN 302.1 tapped, blind bore and stud versions in with stainless steel components, as well as push button types WN 304 in tapped, blind bore and stud types (steel components), and WN 304.1 in tapped, blind bore and stud variations (stainless steel components).

These RoHS complaint components have a straight lever parallel to the clamping surface. For some applications this presents an advantage due to limits of space or for visual reasons. Handles, offered in black or orange, are glass fiber reinforced nylon thermoplastic with molded-in metal inlay. The insert is connected to the lever via serrations which can be easily be disengaged. Pulling the lever upwards disengages the serrations, allowing it to be swiveled to the ideal clamping position. When releasing the lever, the spring allows the serrations to automatically re-engage. On the push button versions, the releasing button is a design element and allows for effortless release action. The nylon plastic push buttons are also available in black or orange.
