Cobb, Eben C.
The primary goal of this project is to develop a device which allows a figure skater to simply and easily adjust the angle of a skate blade to the optimal position without ruining the boot in the process. The project consisted of a design stage in which the individual components were developed, a rapid prototyping stage in which designs were physically examined before being refined, and a prototyping stage in which the final design was machined. The final design utilizes a worm to allow for an infinitely adjustable blade placement angle and set screws at the rear and clamps at the toe to secure the blade in position.
