The Metal Entomology Pinning Block is used to repeatedly place insect specimens and labels at the proper height on pins. The 12, 16 and 20 mm dimension holes are used to determine label heights, and the 26 mm hole for point pinned specimens. The pinning block has a larger diameter hole which accepts a pin head that is used to establish the proper 10mm distance from the specimen to the head of the pin.
This precision pinning block establishes label distances on the pin to within less than the thickness of a piece of paper. The super-hard coating stands up to long term continuous use without any change in label spacing.
The Metal Entomology Pinning Block is inspired after the Rose Entomology Professional Pinning Block. With Bioquip no longer manufacturing this product, Ecology Supplies has stepped up to start sourcing and selling this world class pinning block.
