Creation of a Locking VEX Pillow Block to Serve as a Hinge


Entry ID #: 3449
Created: Tue, Jan 10, 2017 8:45 PM

Team 4001E modified the existing VEX pillow block with a 1/8th in. square shaft insert. This allows the pillow block to lock onto a shaft whereas the existing pillow block allows a shaft to spin freely. The modified pillow block can then be used to make a customizable hinge by connecting a normal pillow block on one plate to our modified pillow block on an adjacent plate with a 1/8th in. shaft.
