A truncated cone is located between an outer support housing and an inner housing which is to be supported. The narrow end of the cone is sized to fit over the inner housing and the wide end of the cone is sized to fit within the outer support housing. The cone is comprised of a material which has a higher thermal expansion coefficient than the inner housing. (Author)
