BE1, BE2 and BE6 Base plates


There are two different types of base plates for the 70 mm column, BE1/BE2 and BE6. 

On BE2 the conical quick coupling can be swivelled sideways in increments of 5°.
For wire sawing, only BE2 with fixed coupling may be used. It is more rigid than the BE2 type of swivelling coupling.

The BETC base plate has a top mount fixed quick disconnect coupling.

BE6 has a the same fixed conical coupling as BE1 but a bit smaller dimensions.

Fitting the eccentric bolt


Tightening the eccentric bolt



Bolt the base plate to a solid object using an M16 / 5/8” anchor bolt. Use only high quality anchors and bolts. Adjust the support legs. Level the base plate using the four leveling screws.

To mount a column on a base plate, or a pivoting head, or to join two columns, an eccentric bolt is inserted in the hole in the column.

  Tighten clockwise with a 1/2" handle or ratchet.

Easy, safe and quick.

To release the column, the eccentric is turned counter clockwise until it lifts from the cone, the eccentric bolt is removed and the column can be removed.

  A column can be swivelled around its own axis when mounted on a base plate or a pivoting head. A column mounted on another column can not be swivelled.

Please note that for maximum rigidity the female cone on the baseplate should be clean and dry. The eccentric bolt should be lubricated with grease.
