Adapters

Post by gabrieli » Wed Aug 02, 2017 11:30 am

This post may have to be moved but I thought people may be interested in what this company offers.

I had never heard of this company until a few days ago (they apparently started up in 2002 in the US). They make adapters to attach a wide variety of optical components together. You specify what you need to attach on the telescope side and the camera/eyepiece side using a pull down menu and when finished you see the price. Even if you have no immediate need, you may get some ideas.

Lou:
I have known them since they started, the owner also speaks Spanish and is a high precisión manufacturer of any part you need.
Their parts are incredibly well made and finished.
Regards,
Eric.

Lou...

I have had them make at least one adapter for me...prices seem to be pretty reasonable for a 'one-off' type of part.

I have a local machinist who can make a lot of adapters, but when you get to fine thread and/or metric fittings he can't do them....Precise Parts can fill the need here very nicely.

I'll put it in the reference library Lou so it doesn't get buried.

Precise parts website seems to have come along quite a bit since i last looked :)
