Their purpose is really just to have something to thread the screws into and secure the PCB - screws go in from the bottom side of the carriage plate instead of from the top side of the PCB, thereby eliminating all protrusions on the top surface of the PCB. A picture here is worth a thousand words here - I'll post one when i get around to installing it properly :)

I think he means surface mounted (soldered) standoffs. Nuts, really.
They're attached to the bottom, so there are no nuts needed on the top.

My plans for spring stand-offs will be like this (top to bottom)

Locknut
-Heater PCB-
Washer
Spring
Washer
Locknut
-ORD main plate-
M3 bolt head

All on an M3x18mm bolt... At least I think it will work out that way.. :D

Why the two locknuts?

The second locknut at the bottom locks the M3 bolt steady to the lower Hadron aluminum plate. This keeps the M3 bolt from being wobbly... :)

Well, you need a bolt head at one end (in my case I chose bottom, could be top though just the same) and a nut at the other. The in between stuff isn't as necessary but I wanted it like this.

Maybe you don't really need a locknut on top, as the heater will just likely sit there due to its weight. But I was thinking it would be a good idea, plus I will be clamping a detachable glass piece on top of the heater PCB itself..

The top nut (or screw head) is necessary with other heaters but not for this one, as the nut is already provided, permanently soldered to the bottom of the board. This is to avoid having anything (like nuts) on the top surface of the heater. I will post a picture later, i'm sure that will clear things up. :)

That's exactly what i was aiming at, IPvFletch.

You only need one nut.
The standoff is threaded.
