Terminal block holder

From HacDC Wiki


//Terminal Block Holder v2 - reduced height from 15 to 10 and raised screw hole 2mm by reducing end width (EW) from 12 to 8.

//These parts hold a terminal block for landing of the wires going to the safety interlock switches.  It is designed to use self threading
    screws without nuts.  Handedness is based upon which end of the terminal strip the mount sets on when looking at the terminal strip.
    The right piece goes toward the back of the machine, and the left piece goes toward the front.  The first version was too tall to slide
    on the front of the chassis and too long to fit on the back, so both dimensions are reduced here in version 2.
