exwafoo Posted January 15, 2017 Report Share Posted January 15, 2017 All, I've been playing around with ways of holding the 'stuff' whilst in the bottle. These are a set of grippers that will grip both fore and aft, and sideways. Made from a piece of brass tube, brass rod, a spring, and dowel. A 'L' shaped piece is soldered to the end of the tube as shown after filling flats on both surfaces. The rod is bent to shape, inserted into the tube. A hole is drilled through a piece of dowel for the tube and a bling hole for the rod. A spot of CA glue holds it together. I used electrical solder for the joint. Sideways grip is obtained by rotating the dowels in relation to each other, although I still have to experiment with the shape of the pincers to get the best grip of the part, the rod is pushed forward and rotated a bit, then spring pressure will act as a gripper for fore and aft. Its small enough to be worked with one hand. Apologies for the out of focus shots best Alan IgorSky, JesseLee, Chasseur and 3 others 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
