The GRS BenchMate Encore QCX Stone Setter's Kit builds on the Basic QCX Kit, adding a wood bench pin and holder which can be mounted to the same fixed mounting plate as the BenchMate and two ring-holding fixtures. Both the Horizontal and Vertical Inside Ring-Holding Fixtures include 10 plastic collets for securing rings of various sizes. The design of these fixtures secures the ring along the inside surface, providing full support and allowing you to work on the outside surface unencumbered by clamps. Switching fixtures is easier than ever with the BenchMate Encore's redesigned quick change mechanism. Simply loosen the knurled knob at the bottom of the tool handle, twist the fixture a quarter turn and pull it straight out.
Similar to the BenchMate Encore QC, the QCX can be rotated along all three axes by way of the two large, hand-adjustable pivot screws and by rotating the tool handle in its mount. Unlike the QC, the QCX tool handle can also be adjusted up and down by adjusting the two threaded collars. This additional adjustment, along with the design of the mounting arms, allows you to rotate your work in any direction while maintaining its position in space. This unique ability is essential when working with a microscope. By maintaining your work's position in space, there's no need to re-position or re-focus your microscope every time you rotate the work.
The newly redesigned hand-rest can be easily mounted on either side of the tool. This allows both right and left handed access to your work.
