Disk Spacing And Transfer Tool for Multi Sizes/Multi Disks

A device handles and transfers all disks sizes, and gives the option for 1/4 or 1/2 inch spacing as desired while transferring them from container to container.

Two bevel slots one with a 1/2 inch thickness and one with a 3/4 inch thickness (a+b, respectively), align the disks, as seen in Fig. 1.

In Fig. 2, spacers 1 are cut to the dimensions and shape shown in Fig. 1, and positioning of the thicker disk is insured by the 90 degree taper on the outer slot. Then, the top of the inner taper insures positive positioning and centering. The thinner disks use the inner 90 degree taper for insuring their positioning into the inner slot.

The spacing between the disks slots are 1/4 inch when the actuator 3 compresses springs 2 until the spacers 1 cause positive stopping. When actuator 3 is released the springs return to their free length which gives the 1/2 inch spacing between slots.
