  • Patent number: 7513182
    Abstract: Integrated circuit package separator for separating integrated circuit packages from a board. A base having a plurality of pins extending upwardly therefrom is provided. A support is provided over the base. The support has an upper surface and a plurality of holes extending therethrough. The pins extend through the holes and upwardly beyond the upper surface of the support. An actuator is provided beneath the support. A board having a plurality of integrated circuits bonded thereto is provided. The integrated circuits form a repeating pattern of integrated circuit packages across the board, and the board has a plurality of holes extending through it. The board is placed over the support upper surface with the pins extending into the holes in the board and cut to separate the integrated circuit packages from one another. After the cutting, the support is vertically displaced by the actuator to lift the support off the pins.

  • Patent number: 7484446
    Abstract: Novel modifications to a standard Pro-lok Blue Punch manual punch press machine have been developed which permit the modified machine to accurately and consistently cut Sargent brand L and R series keys to code. Modifications to the same machine are presented such that both Sargent L and R series keys may be cut to code on the same Pro-lok Blue Punch manual punch press machine. Primary features of the modifications are (1) moving the indexing stops from the lower jaw to the upward facing surface of the die and (2) providing two indexing stops on the die such that each stop is laterally positioned on opposite sides of the punch from the other.

  • Publication number: 20080196568
    Abstract: A saw table includes a clamping mechanism for clamping a work piece on the saw table. The clamping mechanism includes a clamping bar having a first end and a second end. A longitudinal axis is defined between the first and second ends. A first pivoting arm is operatively connected to one of the ends of the clamping bar to support the clamping bar for rotation about a pivot axis. A biasing device biases the clamping bar about the pivot axis to clamp the work piece between the clamping bar and a table base.

  • Patent number: 7360476
    Abstract: A cutting guide having a component defining a first plane positionable substantially parallel to a working table of a cutting tool and a second plane, the second plane forming a predetermined angle inferior to 90 degrees relative to the first plane so as to receive at least in part a piece to cut and orienting the same according to a predetermined inclined plane. The cutting guide also includes an adapter allowing for modification of the predetermined angle, the adapter being releasably mountable to the component so that one of the faces of the adapter defines a new inclined plane.

  • Publication number: 20070251367
    Abstract: A desktop hole punch device for punching holes in stacked sheet media such as paper is disclosed. The hole punch device includes at least one adjustable, laterally extending arm having markings thereon indicating standard office paper sizes. The markings are visible to the user through a window in the device. An edge guide at the distal end of the arm aligns the stack of sheet media and a curved page lifter extending from the edge guide reverses the natural curl in the paper stack for better and more precise hole punching.

  • Publication number: 20070221028
    Abstract: A fence assembly of a cut-off machine includes a fence base fixed above a worktable of the cut-off machine, a fence plate supported on and movable along the fence base, having a downwardly extending bottom panel and a locking structure for controlling if the fence plate is locked to the fence base. The locking structure includes a fastener defining a separation with a constant length from the fence base, a first block, a second block and a press member. The first block, the second block and the bottom panel are crowded into the constant separation. The bottom panel is disposed between the second block and the fence base. The contact surface between the first block and the second block slopes toward the direction of the separation. The first block is movable substantially perpendicularly to the direction of the separation. The press member selectively presses the first block.

  • Patent number: 7104173
    Abstract: An improved corner cutting structure, having a knife seat and a base pivotally connected to the knife seat. The knife seat has an inwardly recessed notch and a receiving slot formed on a periphery. The receiving slot provides the support of a blade. The base has a supporting platform and a cutting board. The cutting board and the blade of the knife seat are correspondingly installed with each other, and the supporting platform is placed underneath the notch. Thereby, when a card is disposed on the supporting platform, the knife seat is pressed rotating to move the blade downward, so as to cut the corner of the card.
