Spherical Washer Sets (Self-Aligning Washers)

Spherical Washer Sets, also known as Self-Aligning Washers or Equalizing Washers, are a great solution for fastening applications on an uneven surface.  The washer set consists of a “top” half that is convex and a “bottom” half that is concave.  The top washer has a slightly narrower ID than the bottom washer while both have the same radius.  This enables a bolt or screw to pass through both washers and “self-align” allowing for a flat clamping washer surface.  The spherical washer sets are designed for a 3-4 degree angle of correction.  Morton Machine Works manufactures the sets in case-hardened carbon steel with a black-oxide finish or in 303 stainless steel.  Variations in material or surface coatings are available upon request.  Morton offers spherical washer sets from stock in bolt sizes of 3/32″ to 2-3/4″ available for same day shipping.

Adjustable Handles

Adjustable Handles are widely used today by Original Equipment Manufacturers as a great way to fasten and secure multiple parts. Adjustable Handles have an internal ratchet system that allows you to “lift and rotate” the handle to any position after it has been tightened.  They are ideal for applications that have tight space requirements and are commonly found on medical equipment, processing and packaging equipment, machine tools, and fitness equipment.  Morton Machine Works offers adjustable handles in a wide variety of materials, styles, and colors available in all the common inch and metric sizes.   Other names for adjustable handles included adjustable clamping levers, clamping levers, ratchet handles, ratcheting handles, spring loaded levers, hand levers, adjustable tension levers, and clamp levers.
