Fig. 1 shows a side view of the existing ceramic substrate test assembly generally known as the deck test assembly. The test head 1 has many test probes 2 arranged in a generally square array so as to be aligned with the heads 4 of the pins 4' in the ceramic substrate 3 which is to be tested. In operation, the test assembly sequentially indexes ceramic substrates 3 so that the forwardmost substrate is stopped by the surface 6 of the test head stop 5. As seen in Fig. 2 in a top view, the stop 5 is projected into the path of motion for the substrate 3, thereby stopping the substrate 3 in the desired aligned position with the test probes 2 of the test head 1.
