      Hello,

      I'm working on a project and I need a nice smooth rotation mechanism. I've been looking at faucets....many have a head that swivels 360 degrees and there are no visible set screws for the outside. I've attached a picture of what I'm thinking of. Does anyone have any ideas on how this works/what the mechanism looks like? Any help would be great!

      Thanks,

      Josh

      Can you give any more information? Are you planning to design a faucet, or a device which acts like the faucet in the picture.

      Don't forget that most of the consumer devices/parts are not designed to be taken apart after they've assemblied. So they may have used some kind of epoxy or glue while building that faucet.

      Thanks, I ended up looking up some patent drawings and schematics of faucets and figured it out.
