I think that the holes will be sufficient to adjust the spring tension. I have access to Inventor to open .ipt files.

This is great, thanks. I've had several unsuccesful attempts at designing something similar to a slipper clutch myself. I'm very interested in future updates particularly tension adjustment. Would it be possible to share the source file so that I can modify it for different shaft sizes?



I am thinking about adding four tapped holes on the cup side for bolts that when screwed in would apply
pressure on a washer that would compress the spring, giving controllable
torque adjustments vs changing the spring. What are your thoughts? Can you modify .ipt files?
