Subject: CoM to Clamping Point Measurement for 3" Adapter Ring 

After changing the material of the Balance Mass from 6061 Al to 304 Steel, and changing the thickness to 0.21" from 0.25". The CoM is now 1.11mm below the clamping point.

Koji expected a mass change of ~ 4g to move the mass to 1.1mm. The 6061 mass weighed ~1.31g and the 304 mass weighs 4.1g.

A potential issue with this is the screw used the adjust the position of these balance masses, threads through both the aluminum ring and this now 304 steel mass. A non silver plated screw could cold weld at the mass, but a silver plated screw will gall in the aluminum threads.

Quote:

The current vertical distance between the CoM and the wire clamping point on the 3" Ring assembly is 0.33mm. That is the CoM is .33 mm below the clamping point of the wire. I took the clamping point to be the top edge of the wire clamp piece. see the below attachments.

I am now modifying the dumbell mechanism at the bottom of the ring to move the CoM to the target distance of 1.1mm.
