Finger-joint


Explanation:
See "Particolare del sistema "incastro a pettine". Finger-joint." (http://www.gestelnet.it/locastro/trave.html)

Iniziamo ad elencare il necessario per il collegamento del display LCD: un display LCD 4x20 (possono andar bene anche display più piccoli 16x2 o più grandi 4x40), un cavo flat da 26 poli, un connettore a crimpare da 26 poli (il classico connettore per il collegamento della porta parallela alla scheda madre), due connettori a pettine (maschio e femmina), un trimmer verticale multigiro (per la regolazione del contrasto, assolutamente necessario per la funzionalità del display), cavi elettrici fini (rosso per l'alimentazione e nero per la massa a terra), un saldatore a punta fine e dello stagno.
Inizialmente inseriamo il connettore a pettine (maschio) nelle fessure sulla base della scheda su cui poggia il display, e saldiamo ogni piedino, successivamente inseriamo ad incastro il connettore a pettine (femmina) in quello che abbiamo appena saldato (maschio), al quale verranno saldati i cavetti del cavo flat come da schema elettrico.

The benefits of finger joints in furniture and cabinet manufacturing are: 1) clear lumber from low grade stock, 2) less short length or waste material, and 3) increased yield of usable long parts. (http://www.woodweb.com/knowledge_base/Finger_Joints_A_Few_Wh...

fingerjoint • A joining of shorter pieces of lumber to create one longer piece by cutting joints in the pieces, fitting them together and securing them with a waterproof adhesive. Finger joints are commonly accepted as an economical way to create one long piece of wood but these joints can loosen and contribute quickly to a “smile” sag.

Long tapered fingers used to join material lenghtwise, often used in manufacturing moulding to join short lengths. (http://sawdustmaking.com/GLOSSARY/glossary_of__woodworking_t...
