An adjustable stylus holder from Q-Mark positions CMM probes at various angles without the use of rotary adapters. The holder’s design is said to enable unlimited axial rotation of star probes, cubes and other angled components. A small wrench is used to orient components to the desired angle and a knurled key tightens the assembly. The adjustable stylus holders are available in anodized aluminum or Delrin, a high-performance thermoplastic that provides weight savings over the aluminum version.
