Pedestal bases provide a strong and secure method for the mounting of mirrors and other sensitive optics at fixed heights. A range of different component holders can be attached to the top of the pedestal by means of screws. An 8-32 or M4 screw can be threaded directly into the top or bottom of the pedestals. Pedestal heights can be varied to compensate for different beam center-heights within an optical layout. The complete pedestal/mount assembly can then be flexibly attached to a breadboard or optical table by means of a disc or fork clamp (provided with captive screw). Alternatively, a screw or stud may be inserted into the base of the pedestal so that it can be attached directly to a base. The pedestals are made of solid stainless steel for sturdy mounting.
Clamps for Pedestal Bases (PST) can secure Pedestals freely about a tapped hole on a vibration isolator or laboratory bench. The PSTM is used to add a pedestal base to standard Post Holders with M16 Threads. This allows the Post Holders to be freely positioned like a Pedestal. Learn More
