$825.00 Features 1" thick acrylic base sheet and Kydex vertical measurement planes for extreme durability. Constructed of acrylic, aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. Provides the durability and accuracy required for years of reliable service. Provides unparalleled linear tracking and fluidity of motion. Measurement is accomplished via a linear scale (1/2 mm increment) mounted and indexed to the rear of the board. End planes machined from aluminum and are removable for ease of shipment and storage. ASME standardized. Do not use the mounted scale alone to measure mid-shaft. The scale is offset to compensate for the thickness of the measuring plates and mounting point.
Lightweight Field Osteometric Board
***Coming Soon!*** $625.00 Composed of high impact Plexiglas and aluminum Reduced weight by over 70% compared to older boards. The Field Osteometric board features the same measurement method as the Laboratory Osteometric Board minus the rod and bearing assembly Collapsible to 12" x 6.5" x 1 1/2". Design is nearly identical to the all aluminum Field Osteometric Board requiring no re-training if transitioning from the all aluminum version. Scales are laser etched directly onto the board's base along with guide lines (cm). Tighter fit than the aluminum Field Osteometric Board (less positioning of the movable section). Constructed of mostly Plexiglas. Please Note: this version is not as sturdy as the aluminum version and is subject to greater wear if not properly looked after. Those planning to use conduct research in extreme conditions please consider this prior to ordering. Board can be customized with your name or identification mark at no extra cost. ASME standardized.
Field Osteometric Board: Student Edition
$60.00 -Accurate to .5mm -Manufactured of 1/4" -Black Laser Etched Acrylic. -Narrower measuring surface (than standard board) and no integrated vertical measuring planes. -You provide the vertical measuring surfaces (examples: hard cover books, wooden blocks, etc.). -Splits into two pieces for portability -ASME standardized. -Comes with a microfiber sleeve for cleaning and storage.
$525.00 Based on the same dimensions and design as the classic instrument that has been used by anthropologists since the beginning of last century but updated with modern materials and utilizing state of the art manufacturing techniques. Main body is machined out of aircraft grade 1/4 inch aluminum plate. Scale is machined stainless and permanently laser engraved 0 - 30 cm in 1mm increments. Measuring surface options: Ground stainless steel ball ends Assure accuracy after long term use Prevent damage to the measured specimen. Ground pointed ends For precise measurement. Joint surface utilizes a stainless steel contact plate to afford even friction along the measurement range eliminating the need for a thumb lock. Entire unit weighs in at less than 5 and 1/2 ounces. Main body dimensions are 12" x 4" when closed. ASME standardized.
Spreading Calipers: Student
**Coming Soon!** $99.00 Body and scale machined from 1.5mm thick 316 Stainless Steel for durability and savings Index made of machined naval brass Joints secured by aluminum rivets Scales laser etched in same increments as the standard spreading caliper with interpolation to .5mm accuracy possible Very durable and will last years of abuse in the lab. Spreading Caliper Case DOES NOT fit the Student Spreading Caliper Every Caliper is calibrated and checked using the same method as the standard spreading calipers. ASME standardized. If arms ever become bent, it is very easy to return them to flat. If they seem damaged beyond the ability for you to repair, send them to me and I will fix it for free if at all possible.
