Anodized Trailer Blocks - Back in Stock!

Welcome back to the blog!

We'd like to gladly announce that we have restocked our anodized lift/lowering block inventory and all previously sold-out options are available for purchase once again!

Additionally, our anodized inventory is now offered with MIL-8625 Type III hardcoat! The process for Type III utilizes sulfuric acid and lower bath temperatures which results in a thicker, stronger hard-coating on the finished product. This darker finish for our blocks grants greater corrosion and abrasion resistance making it an ideal option for industrial applications, damp climates, harsher winter road conditions, marine, and saltwater applications. The anodizing conforms to MIL-8625 Type III Class 1 & 2 and AMS-2469.

Type III Anodized vs Classic

We'd like to thank all of our readers and customers for their patience and support as we've been rebuilding our inventory. If you have any questions about our anodized blocks, please leave a comment below, email us at: contact@trailerblocks.com or reach out to us on social media.

Thank you for your interest,

Team Trailer Blocks

Community Spotlight: May 4th 2018

Welcome back to the Trailer Blocks Community Spotlight, where we showcase photos and stories submitted by the community of their installations of our lift/lowering blocks. Today’s entry focuses on Brian from Oregon who was looking for a lift solution to his trailer when driveway clearance became an issue backing in.

Brian opted for a full 3” lift kit with U-bolts and tie plates and after he installed it, he told us that it eliminated the headaches he was having with the truck/trailer height differential. As you’ll see in the great photos he provided below, Brian’s installation went off without a hitch.

Space Matters: The James Webb Space Telescope

Welcome back to the blog!

For this entry of Space Matters, we're taking a look at an incredible project years in the making, the James Webb Space Telescope. Scheduled for launch in late 2018, Webb will reveal a universe we have never seen before and is poised to answer questions that have intrigued us for thousands of years: How did the universe begin? Where did we come from? Are we alone?

In development since 1996, the project represents an international collaboration of the European Space Agency, Canadian Space Agency and teamwork from members of other countries although led by NASA in the U.S.A. The telescope is named after James E. Webb, the second administrator of NASA, who played an integral role in the Apollo program. The James Webb Space Telescope was originally called the "Next Generation Space Telescope," or NGST. It was called "Next Generation" because Webb will build on and continue the science exploration started by the on-orbit work of the Hubble Space Telescope. Discoveries by Hubble and other telescopes have caused a revolution in astronomy and have raised new questions that require a new, improved, and more powerful orbital space telescope.

JWST will offer unprecedented resolution and sensitivity into the infrared wavelengths of light. While the Hubble Space Telescope has a 2.4-meter (7.9 ft) diameter mirror, the JWST features a larger segmented gold 6.5-meter-diameter (21 ft 4 in) primary mirror and will be located near the Earth–Sun L2 point. To see deeply into the infrared a large multi-layer sunshield will keep its mirror and four science instruments below 50 K (-220 °C; -370 °F). JWST's capabilities will enable a broad range of investigations across the fields of astronomy. One particular goal involves observing some of the most distant events and objects in the universe, such as the formation of the first galaxies. In the deep dark of outer space these types of targets are beyond the reach of current ground and space-based instruments. Ground telescopes and unshielded orbital telescopes glow themselves, from the internal heat within the instruments. Another goal is furthering our understanding of the formation of stars and planets. This will include direct imaging of supernovas, extra-solar objects, such as exoplanets - the worlds around other stars, that could be brought to life with vivid detail through the imagery provided by The James Webb Space Telescope.

NASA has described JWST as the scientific successor of the Hubble Space Telescope, but not a replacement, because the capabilities are not identical and the Hubble will not be taken offline. JWST has an objective lens large enough to see high-redshift objects, typically both older and farther away than previous instruments could assess. This radical design for JWST will put it beyond the capabilities of all other telescopes currently in operation.

We'll be keeping an eye on the development and launching of this monumental project and you should too, as we seek to expand our knowledge of the cosmos collectively as a species. We'll have more to come, thanks for reading!
