Product Description

802, 802-3 Precision Lateral Slides

Precision horizontal translation

Our 802 has a substantial 2″ (5 cm) travel for horizontal alignment to known points. Precision roller bearings permit accurate translation of a precision plumbed instrument, minimizing the need for readjustment. Consider also the 802-3 compound lateral slide, which is constructed using two orthogonally-mounted 802 slides. The 802-3 therefore has a full 2″ of travel in both the X and Y directions. Both slides have a clear vertical aperture designed to allow plummet sightings. Both models have a standard external 3½”-8 instrument thread mount on top.

A dovetail on the bottom side of the 802 and 802-3 slides seats into the 800 lift or the 235-16 adapter, rotating 360 degrees until secured by two set-screws. This allows convenient slide positioning.

You can see a list of all of our instrument adapters, or look at an entire list of heavy duty or portable stands, on this website.
