Pinned Specimen Manipulator


SKU: PSM Category:


The Rose Pinned Specimen Manipulator is for the viewing of mounted insect specimens under a dissecting microscope. It allows the specimen to be viewed from multiple angles while remaining in a central viewing area. It enables the viewer to maintain relative focus while twisting and turning the specimen to expose all sides.

Precision machined from solid brass bar stock, then nickel plated for durability. All hardware and knobs are made from solid stainless steel bar stock to resist corrosion and the bearings are hand lapped for smooth, easy rotation. This combination of materials, design, and craftsmanship allows for the use of high magnification with little or no vibration of the specimen.

Features include:

  • Lifetime Guarantee
  • User replaceable plastazote foam pinning plug
  • Adjustable tension wheel holds the arm firmly in place at any angle
  • Heavy, surface ground, flat base for superior stability
  • Made in the USA

The Pinning Plug Replacement Kit (11RPPK) contains instructions and 15 plastazote plugs. Due to shipping restrictions we cannot ship rubber cement with the Pinning Plug Replacement Kit. You will have to purchase the rubber cement locally.
