This is a jig to ensure your test sample doesn't buckle during a material sample compression test.

Sandwich sample between two jig pieces with teeth on sample
Insert a bolt in each bolt hole with one washer (4 bolts and 4 washers total)
Add 4 more washers on the opposite side
Thread 4 wingnuts (or nuts if you prefer) and lightly tighten (finger tight)
Install entire setup to Load Machine.
Have fun breaking things! :D
