30424Re: [mill_drill] Re: screw loading
- Feb 1, 2012This is to hold some TDK power supplies inside a NEMA 12 box. Their
supplies are nice but their mounting is questionable, the supply weighs
4.5 pounds and has only three M3 screws that can penetrate up to 3mm
into the box. Screwed into a pressed-in steel insert like these
I'm thinking of some of the thin double stick tape between the supply
and the case in addition to the screws, these have to go on theatrical tour.
