NEW PRODUCT – Adjustable Angle Support for 2020 Aluminum Extrusion
NEW PRODUCT – Adjustable Angle Support for 2020 Aluminum Extrusion – This is an interesting hardware piece addition for 20×20 aluminum extrusion. Rather than being a 90 degree type plate, it’s a hinged piece that connects the end of one extrusion to the side of another, but with any angle you wish. You can loosen/tighten the angle with the screw on the side. Given it’s just a bolt, it’s not incredibly strong so while you can use it for structure, it’s not a load-bearing connector: make sure there isn’t a lot of torque on the joint. You can use thread-lock to make it stronger.
The half that connects to the side one an extrusion simply uses a single M4 or M5 x 8mm long screw + T-nut as you’d use with any other plate. For the half that connects to the end of an extrusion, you’ll need to tap the 5mm diameter center-hole of the extrusion and screw directly in. We don’t include a tap or matching screw so you’ll want to pick those up from a hardware store.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
