Model 1261 A/P Slide Attachment provides fine control for A/P settings offering 60 mm of A/P adjustment at the end of the lateral manipulator slide. When the manipulator is positioned 90° from vertical, the vertical becomes the A/P and the A/P attachment becomes vertical. In this position, electrodes or pins can be placed in the A/P plane. This is particularly desirable when writing an atlas.
Rack and pinion drive have a 0.1 mm vernier. Model 1261 can be easily attached and removed from any Kopf manipulator. It mounts in place of the Model 1770 Electrode Holder and has fittings so that electrode holders may be mounted on either the right or left end of the slide.
This unit can also be used when manipulator is positioned at a severe angle. The orientation of the 1261 will now serve as the d/v adjustment to lower a tool closer to the head.
