Probe of the Month November 2014
November 2014's Probe of the Month is a right-angle stylus with a 1.5 mm ruby ball. The ruby ball is mounted on a carbide stem that is mounted to a custom hard anodized aluminum extension. A standard M3 rotary adapter (Q-Mark part number RAP-0513-M3) is mounted between the custom extension and the M3/M5 thread adapter to provide axial adjustment.
The ruby ball and stem are a separate assembly, allowing fast and easy exchange in case of wear or collision.
