Stages & Adapter Plates
For precise X-Y measurement of small parts and
other applications, two types of measuring stages are offered, with a choice of 3/4in or
2in diameter micrometer drums (heads), having either one-inch or two-inch travel. Two
drums are needed for each stage: one each for the X and Y travel (Drums with metric
calibration are available on special order.)
Measuring stages have either 2in x 2in or 2in x 6in travel capability. For 6in travel,
gauge blocks are required. Both stages can be used for transmitted or oblique/vertical
Measuring stages fit into adapter plates which in turn are mounted onto the Shopscope
microscope stand. For the 15835 plain stand, the 17570 adapter is used in place of the
usual circular stage plate. For the 17520 illuminated base stand, the 17571 adapter fits
onto the base in place of the usual rectangular opal glass plate.

scanning/zero-set bar in X-direction, with rectangular 3 5/8in x 7 5/8in glass insert
stage plate (without drums).
