Base Lab Tools offers a range of accessories for the Ø12.7mm posts. Some examples are:
The 6 way Ø12.7mm post joiner provides makes it simple to build three dimensional structures from Base Optics PST series Ø12.7mm posts. The solid aluminum, black anodized joiner has tapped holes on all six sides. Three adjoining sides are tapped M4 and the opposite three adjoining sides are each tapped M6.
The Ø12.7mm right angle post mount allows for two Ø12.7mm posts to be joined at 90°. The PST900-M uses the same flexure grip on the post to provide a far more secure mounting surface than inferior screw against post solutions. Right angle Ø12.7mm post mounts are often used in combination with the PST910-M sliding Ø12.7mm post mount to bring components into tight spaces on the optical table.
The Ø12.7mm sliding mount is ideal for applications where a component is mounted off of a Ø12.7mm post. The flexure grip on the post provides a far more secure mounting surface than inferior screw against post solutions. The PST910-M 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.
