Base Lab Tools offers a range of accessories for the Ø1/2″ posts. Some examples are:
The 6 way Ø1/2″ post joiner provides makes it simple to build three dimensional structures from Base Optics PST series Ø1/2″ posts. The solid aluminum, black anodized joiner has tapped holes on all six sides. Three adjoining sides are tapped #8-32 and the opposite three adjoining sides are each tapped 1/4-20.
The Ø1/2″ right angle post mount allows for two Ø1/2″ posts to be joined at 90°. The PST900 uses the same flexure grip on the post to provide a far more secure mounting surface than inferior screw against post solutions. Right angle Ø1/2″ post mounts are often used in combination with the PST910 sliding Ø1/2″ post mount to bring components into tight spaces on the optical table.
The Ø1/2″ sliding mount is ideal for applications where a component is mounted off of a Ø1/2″ post. The flexure grip on the post provides a far more secure mounting surface than inferior screw against post solutions. The PST910 also functions as a stop allowing an entire post assembly to be removed from a post holder and then put back in the same position.
