Collimating Tool

The effective center lines of different tools can be made coincident by providing a holding bracket for one tool adjustable with respect to the center line of the other.

Frequently, the crossing location of the cross hairs in a microscope reticle is not coincident with the physical center of the microscope tube. When tools are interchanged with the microscope tube, their centers will not coincide.

Referring to the figure, drill guide sleeve 1 may be assumed to be fixed. Over this sleeve is placed collimating sleeve 2 and collimating plate 3 which holds microscope 4. Plate 3 is adjusted laterally with respect to sleeve 2 until the microscope cross-hair center is coincident with the center of sleeve 1. The plate is then tightened in position by screws 5. The assembly of microscope 4, plate 3 and sleeve 2 can be removed, and a tool such as drill 6 inserted within guide sleeve 1. The center lines of the two devices will now coincide over holes 7 and workpiece 8.
