Re: Half-Height Leveling Nuts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

A friend of mine in a small manufacturing (misc) concern once told me that any nut that engages THREE threads will develop the full strength of the threads (assuming, obviously, the same material on both 'sides' of the thread.) Seems I also read that somewhere - Machinery's Handbook, IIRC. 'Machinery's' has a real good discussion on thread strength that might make a good read.

Do you have a name for the manufacturer or supplier? Any idea on load capacities?

    The contractor on one of my current projects is using them.  They
    are also commonly called "jamb" nuts.  As long as you do not have
    extremely high loads they work just fine.

    	Half-Height Leveling Nuts


    Has anyone had any experience using half-height nuts for leveling
    nuts?  The space between the foundation and base plate will be
grouted with non-shrink grout after the structure is erected. David Finley, P.E.
