Abstract

The problems of adjustment of the detent guide are eliminated by the design illustrated in the drawing. The guide 10 mounts on the tilt ring 12 with one screw 14, bowed washer 16 and a nut 18. Fine adjustments are made by adjusting the fine-threaded setscrew 20 in or out, moving the guide 10 to the required clearance for proper operation. The bowed washer 16 is used to exert a force on guide 10 so that the only movement would be in the direction of the adjustment. The washer 16 holds the guide 10 flat against the tilt ring 12 to prevent movement when tightening down screw 14. This design provides a more accurate adjustment, is easily accessible, and can be implemented in applications where space constraints are involved.
