The future is here – the future is blue! The brand new, patent pending, low friction u-bolts Our first line of U-bolts with a rubber shroud were the ever popular 1108 series. A basic rubber sleeve and pad added to the U-bolt to act as an insulator These U-bolts are ideally suited to insulating the metal of the pipe / tube from the U-bolt. Perhaps they are dissimilar metals, and you need to prevent any enhanced corrosion problems. These are not classed as either grip or non-grip and could be used in both situations depending on placement of nuts, or trimming the rubber slightly You can see our range of insulating rubber lined u-bolts on our website : Click Here Our next foray into rubber encased U-bolts was the heavy…

Fidget Toys / Spinners – the latest craze

What are Fidget Toys? Some people are fidgety, always on the move, fiddling and doing something with their hands. Fidget toys are specially designed to provide tactile sensations and an outlet for that surplus energy. Twiddling something in your hands can distract your attention away from stressful situations. They can be particularly beneficial for those with Autism, ADHD, Asperger’s and Anxiety. But also great to help with hair twirling, thumb sucking, pencil flipping, nail biting, smoking and anything else you need a distraction from.

Difference Between Black Steel and Bright Drawn Steel | Metal Supermarkets

Great informotion from Metalsupermarkets.co.uk Black Steel: Black steel is created through a mill process which involves rolling the steel at a high temperature (typically at a temperature over 1700° F), which is above the steel’s recrystallization temperature. When steel is above the recrystallization temperature, it can be shaped and formed easily, and the steel can be made in much larger sizes. Black steel is typically cheaper than bright drawn steel due to the fact that it is often manufactured without any delays in the process, and therefore the reheating of the steel is not required (as it is with bright drawn). When the steel cools off it will shrink slightly thus giving less control on the size and shape of the finished product when compared to bright drawn. Uses: Black…
