Bal-tec™ Home Female and Male Cones
When the surface of a Male Cone is brought into contact with the circle formed at the intersection of a hole and a plane, three degrees of test part freedom are constrained. Two side by side Cones will form an excellent Vee Block to restrict two degrees of test part freedom. The smallest Male Cone (Part #CO-60-CPM ) has a 60 degree included angle, so that it is compatible with the standard shaft centers. It starts at a sharp point and goes up to one inch ( 2.54 cm ) diameter. This small Cone is made of hardened stainless steel and the Cone is precision ground. This smallest of the conical component uses the standard one-half inch (1.27cm) diameter boss with a #10-32 hold down thread to form a high load carrying joint. Another small diameter hardened stainless steel Male Cone, ( Part #CO-90-CPM ) has a 90 degree included angle. The 90 degree angle starts at a one-eighth inch ( 0.125", 0.32 cm) diameter flat tip and goes up to the full one inch ( 2.54 cm ) diameter. This Male Cone is precision ground. It has the standard one-half inch (0.50", 1.27cm) diameter boss ( post ) with a #10-32 hold down to provide high load carrying capacity.
Here is a measurement of the height-offset from the bottom of the part to the top of the ball, if used with a ball of a few common sizes:
