237 “Groundhog” Stand
Handy for Very Low Setups
The 237 metrology stand provides a standard 3½”-8 external thread for instrument mounting and also has the same 2.825″-20 internal threads as the intermediate tubes in a number of our other stands. (See below for a list of compatible products.)
The base is cast iron for strength and stability; the superstructure is aluminum for maximum rigidity with minimum weight. The instrument mount is raised and lowered by a recirculating ball nut lead screw. The stand may be locked in any position. A foot pedal engages or disengages three casters; when these casters are retracted, the stand rests on three adjustable trivet points with lock screws. This makes it possible to rough-level the stand on uneven surfaces.
As shown below, the 237 “groundhog” stand may be lowered to within a few inches of the floor, or secured in any position up to its full height.
