The Leverage MountBlank (No. 22-281) is used to support objects with cylindrical or oval-section shafts angled up from the deck. It consists of two brass straps soldered one above the other on opposite sides of a sturdy rod. The opposing straps work on the principle of leverage: the upper strap holding the underside of the artifact, the lower strap wrapping up and over.
Examples: Spoon & Shears
Here are an unshaped Leverage MountBlank, two objects we want to display and their finished, padded mounts.
Hover your curser over each object for a description.
Below, the objects are placed on their mounts. Click on the Spoon to see the working details of the leverage mount.
