Elesa is introducing the new CTL.476 and CTL.476p to their range of clamping hand knobs. While the CTL.476/p are probably more recognisable as a wing knob/wing nut, they compliment the whole Elesa series of lobe knobs, fluted grip knobs and scallop knobs for manual clamping applications.
Typical applications would include use on machine tools, jigs, adjustable equipment such as disability aids, as well as instrumentation mounts and positioning of fixtures for removal or re-positioning. Their design enables high tightening torque to be used, while the elongated hub makes the grip easier.
The CTL.476 (wing nut) and the CTL.476p (wing screw) run from M4 with 20mm head to M10 with 56mm head in glass-reinforced polyamide technopolymer. For larger jobs the Elesa VB series three-arm clamping lobe knobs offer the same functionality, and many Elesa hand knobs such as the VCT series are available as soft-grip lobe knobs. Further information about the CTL.476 and CTL.476p clamping hand knobs and other Elesa products may be found at www.elesanow.co.uk; also see www.youtube.com/elesauk.
