Title: X, Y, Z positioner

Abstract

A three-axis control for precisely and conveniently adjusting items such as irrors and lenses is disclosed. The adjuster apparatus includes a vertical stack of three rotatable adjusters. Rotation of the first effects vertical translation, whereas the second and third are eccentric assemblies which interact to effect movement along two angled axes perpendicular to the vertical axis.
