Thrust collar assembly
A new thrust collar assembly that can be used to provide bi-directional axial adjustability and crawl-heavy components along a shaft is now available from Stafford Manufacturing Corp. The Stafford Thrust Collar Assembly consists of a male-female connecting hub, which can be located along a shaft, allowing one side to be fixed and the other side to be adjusted by using the knurled O.D. or a wrench flat. Available in eight standard sizes from 3/8 to 1½ inches (interior diameter), the assembly is well-suited for tensioning springs, adjusting platform heights and even freeing up stuck components.
