The technology of thousands of years ago

The wedge is an of the first simple machines of the humanity. Since ago thousands of years, man has used them to build in wood or metal. This simple device and to his time portable use in different tasks. The use of the manufactured in metal is known still today for splitting logs. You can also see on the edges of various simple machines. One of the clearest examples is the cutting edge of an ax which has the same form. Thus its operation responds to the beginning of the flat inclined. The force applied in part wide is dealt on them flat perpendicular to it generating a power made them ends. We consider in this way which are mechanisms for dividing the force of the impact and create side effects that help to tighten. In the case of them manufactured in metal for splitting trunks, it force applied generates others forces side that united to the edge divided them fibers of form side.

The existence of the wedge predates even the wheel. Possibly it is not a simple machine considered above inventions such as the wheel. But there is that highlight that is a simple device previous to the wheel, and that still brings a crowd of solutions to them different works that are made in construction e even for uses in the life every day. Since it is a machine that is used in many cases to fit a door so that this does not open or close. Or use is also well known to provide a table or Cabinet.


The use of wooden wedges in the building

The use of a wedge can be in it more varied in the building. It is a piece that through its form, triangular prism, to fit building elements as well as fix or temporarily to withstand anything.

In the construction of wooden houses used for leveling the structures at the time of manufacture partitions. Is could tell that the benefits of the wedges at the date of run works of construction are almost infinite. But we can see a little above the common uses.

These gaps in work can be pre-frames or wall of existing work. When installing a window or a door prior should fit into the hole. To adjust them to the hollow is can do directly with wedges. To the do, it thus managed to adapt the parts quickly. To install a piece of woodworking will have to use also an adhesive. You can use foam of polyurethane or white glue (Polyvinyl acetate). This last can be utilized directly on the wedges at the time of making them facilities doors and windows.

Leveling of slats
