Does anyone have the full specification of the brass thread that connects the Reach to the Survey pole?
I have designed a monopole in Fusion 360 which I will share but need the dimensions (other than just 5/8) so I can complete it.
The interchangeable heads will allow other LoRa radio devices and allow you to attach your tablet to it without worrying that you need 6 hands. Estimated print (PETG) time is about 24hrs for all components so really cheap to print.
The exact dimensions of the brass connector please
Fusion 360 easily model that thread for you
Sure, but you need to know the parameters
probably find some tech specs docs at the manufacturers website for those kind of details? Or buy one?
5/8 x 11 mounting thread (this may help for the threading).
Thanks timd, I did look - then took the community option. thanks mate
The cheapest I saw was $45 and that’s without shipping. https://www.tigersupplies.com/Products/Seco-Top-Section-Rover-Pole-to-Complete-the-All-Terrain-Big-Wheel__SEC5125-057.aspx
I am designing a pole that doubles as a venturi gas extractor so the survey is spot on. I am designing all of the other parts like the bubble vial etc.
As it is modular, you can keep going higher, it will save a chunk of survey time and give the great Emlid equipment an accessory
It should never cost more than $50 for a survey pole, including the parts, even with the most expensive filament. Happy to collaborate mate
this is probably the cheapest:
All you need is something like this or even smaller or even just a point/tip etc. There are some cheap fitting adapters also. All kinds of stuff.
Keep in mind that they have different Outer Diameters also…this “extension” is 1" OD. Typical I think is 1.25" OD for a handheld rover rod. The you have range poles, 1.125"± or so… those don’t rally matter though for a typical 5/8" 11 thread your doing though.
yes, survey equipment is highly overpriced due to the high price of Trimble, Leica, Topcon etc. But personally $150 is reasonanble for a good rover rod etc.
I will post up the designs so the community can download and print off their own for less than $50. If something breaks they can just reprint or even develop their own custom mods.
Just to clarify the threads in use:
Bottom of Reach RS(+):
- 1/4"-20 UNC thread
- that is 0.250 inch diameter and 20 threads per inch
- a common camera / camera tripod thread
Bottom of Reach RS(+) brass adaptor:
- 5/8"-11 UNC thread
- that is 0.625 inch diameter and 11 threads per inch
- a common survey equipment thread
If you want tech specs on these Imperial threads, use additional keywords like:
- major diameter
- minor diameter
thanks bide, much appreciated
