2 x 1/4 -20 @ 0.75”
1 x 5/16-18 @ 2”
2 x 5/16-18
4 x #8 @ 0.5”
3/4” thick x 3” x 4”
Mount the base to a small block of wood using the #6 screws and the holes in the FSH_Base_Mount or by using several strips of double stick tape.
Insert the FSH_Bottom_Holder into one side of the FSH_Base with the rod pointing to the inside of the C shape.
Insert the FSH_Nut_Block into the opposite side of the FSH_Base. Orientation does not matter as this part is symmetrical
Insert the two 1/4”-20 bolts into the two smaller holes on the FSH_Base with the hexagonal head of the bolt facing outward.
Note: An Awl or Philips head screw driver many be needed to help align the holes of between the base and the insert as it is a right fit.
Insert the 5/16”-18 nut into the hole on the front side of the FSH_Nut_Block
Thread the second 5/16”-18 nut onto the 5/16”-18 bolt then thread the bolt into the nut that is now captive inside of the FSH_Nut_Block
The upper 5/16”-18 nut can be threaded down to help tighten or loosen the grip on a Fidget Spinner
The FSH_Base can then be placed into the FSH_Base_Mount and using double stick tape, can be adhered into the mount.
