The purpose of such a scheme is to relieve the jamming that would be caused by
very small-dimensional location variation between the holes in the work. This
method is often recommended and used by some designers, but it must be
realized that some movement can still take place as shown by the dotted lines. A
better way to locate the workpiece would be to use a full pin to locate one hole
and a diamond pin in the other. Diamond Pins. A flat workpiece can be located
with two ...

The bulk natural diamond pin tended to dig into the surface of diamond films
during sliding and produce a wear track 1groovel. SEM observations of the
diamond films indicated that small fragments chipped off their surfaces. When
abrasive interactions between the diamond pin surface and the initially sharp tips
of asperities on the diamond film surfaces were strong, the friction was high
1points A in Fig. 9.141. The surface roughness of diamond films can have an
appreciable influence ...

purchased at a prominent jewelers a cluster diamond pin, as a birthday present
to her husband. Wearing it, as was his custom, he went by 'steamer to New York;
and on the passage he either lost it, or it was stolen from him. No traces of it could

Friction and wear of diamond and diamondlike carbon coatings Wright
Laboratory, WrightiPatterson Air Force Base, Dayton, OH 45433 (USA)
Reciprocating sliding friction experiments were conducted with a natural
diamond flat, diamond films, and low- and high-density diamondlike carbon (DLC
) films in contact with pin specimens of natural diamond and silicon nitride (Si
3N4) both in humid air and in dry nitrogen. The results indicated that for natural
diamond pin contacts the ...

At the time of my birth, my father who was a successful Jeweler at the time, asked
my mother if she wanted him to give her a diamond pin or a baby grand victrola.
Being Jewish, my mother said “I'd like the diamond pin”. A week later the victrola
arrived in our apartment. When my mother questioned this gift, my father said he
thought she'd prefer it, because it was so unusual. Shortly afterwards she got the
diamond pin anyway, which was also very unusual. He actually made a replica of

He decided to tackle Fry himself. His approach was casual. Meeting the detective
in the street, he invited him to have a drink at the Barnato Bar. While they were
drinking, mention was made of a 'fancy diamond pin' belonging to Fry. According
to Fry, Barney spoke of the pin first and asked whether he could see it. Fry said
the pin was in his office and offered to show it to Barney there. They went to the
detective's office. 'I showed him the diamond pin and he admired it greatly,' said
