Pin Vise and Micro Needles

This quality pin vise, with a wide choice of micro needles, is ideally suited for probing, picking, scribing, cleaning, marking and similar fine work. There is a wide choice of fine pointed needles for different grades of precision work.

  • Straight stainless steel needles with 0.25, 0.40 and 0.55 mm diameter
  • Angled stainless steel needle with 0.25, 0.40 and 0.55 mm diameter
  • Very fine and straight short micro needle with a 0.1mm diameter
  • Sharp carbon tool steel needle (nickel plated) with a diameter of 0.35mm.

The stainless steel micro needles are more flexible and suitable for probing, picking and sorting. They are also more chemically resistant. The carbon steel needle is stiffer and harder and more suitable for marking, scribing and cleaning applications.

Micromanipulator Accessory Probe

catwhisker probe
Inset Magnified ~6x

"Catwhisker Probe" with 0.07µm Tip Radius, Tungsten Tip

A specialized ultraminiature flexible probe for micromanipulator use. Total length is 1-7/16" (36.5mm), shaft diameter is 0.020" (0.51mm). Other applications may be developed because of the extremely fine tip and its unique design which allows the probe tip to "flex", reducing pressure on the tip.

This probe may be used in the Pin Vise #13560 or the Long Microscopic Needle Holder #1350-5, shown above.
