STROUDSBURG, Pa., Oct. 22, 2015 — The Slim series of solid aluminum optical breadboards from Base Lab Tools Inc. are ¼-in. thick and weigh less than 1 lb. Rounded corners provide a safe laboratory environment, while a true ½-in. border allows 1-in. spacing to be maintained when joining two breadboards together. The devices have at least five counterbore mounting holes for center mounting and greater stability. The breadboards are available in 6 × 6-, 12 × 12- and 12 × 18-in. versions. All sizes are unanodized for high-vacuum applications.
