  • Adapters for Converting Ø1/2" Post Holders, Ø1" Post Extensions and Ø1.5" Posts into Pedestal-Style Posts
  • Large Bottom Relief Cuts in Base for Exceptional Stability
  • Magnetic Pedestal Base Adapter Provides Stability During Alignment for Temporary Setups

Ø1" Pedestal Base Adapters
The BE1(/M) and BE1R(/M) fasten directly to a
Ø1" post extension or a Ø1/2" post holder via the provided 1/4"-20 (M6) stud, converting a standard post or post holder into a pedestal-style mount. Once an adapter is fastened, these Ø1" pedestal configurations are directly compatible with our CF125, CF125C(/M), CF175, and CF175C(/M) solid stainless steel clamping forks, which provide for the greatest overall positional flexibility when mounting to an optical table. For additional stability in temporary setups, the BE1R(/M) base provides a high-strength magnet in the base.

Ø1.5" Pedestal Base Adapter
The PB4 fastens directly to a Ø1.5" post via the provided 1/4"-20 (M6) stud, converting a standard post into a pedestal-style post. This pedestal configuration is directly compatible with the PF175 clamping fork which provides high positional flexibility when mounting to an optical table.

The BE1(/M) and BE1R(/M) pedestal base adapters feature a 1/4"-20 (M6)-threaded stud that fit into the bottom of our standard Ø1/2" post holders or Ø1" posts to convert them into pedestal-style mounts for added stability. The BE1R(/M) adapters have a magnet in the base that is sufficiently strong to securely hold the base in place without clamping to an optical table (see photo to the right). Made from solid 303 stainless steel with a 1.25" (31.8 mm) outer diameter, this adapter allows standard Ø1" posts to be used with clamping forks, and can be tightened onto the post or postholder using a 1/8" (3 mm) hex or ball driver.

The BE1(/M) is available in a pack of five for ease of ordering.
