Nut types from Maker_Store_Team's blog

Maker Store stocks 3 main type of nuts: Lock Nut, Hex Nut and Jam Nut.

Below is an image showing the 3 types:

Lock Nut:

Used when you do not want the nut to come loose. These are used with out wheel kits and for most builds. The nylon insert grips the screw thread and resists loosening.

Hex Nut:

Similar to a lock nut but without the nylon insert. For general purpose use where loosening is not a critical concern.

Jam Nut:

Thinner than both the lock and hex nuts. These are supplied with the Anti-Backlash Nutblocks and are used to fasten the grub screw into place. Can be used when a thin nut is required.
