T MountBlank

The absolute workhorse of  mount solutions, the T MountBlank is used to support a variety of objects.   It consists of a brass rod stem (a) for wall or deck mounting with two cross-bar arms (b).  Beyond our "photo lab" example, we also have many in situ photos.    (May take a while to load...worth the wait!)

The T comes in three sizes.
Which size to use is determined by the object size, its weight, the potential support points and the angle of display desired. 



Light (No.22-211)

1/16" stem (6" long) with 1/32" x 6" crossbar

Medium (No.22-212)

3/32" stem (7" long) with 1/16" x 7" crossbar

Firm (No.22-213)

1/8" stem (8" long) with 3/32" x 8" crossbar


Examples: Beaded Disk
Here are all three sizes of  T Mountblanks with an object and its final mount.
Hover your curser over any item in the photo to see a description of that item.

Below is the object placed on its mount. Click on the beaded disk to see the details of the mount.


Photographs of T's In Situ

This dragon, only about 4" long, stands with the help of the T shaped to follow his leg.

Although he has a 3-point contact, the uneven weight wouldn't allow him to stand without the T for a crutch.


The mounts on the right and in the center are both T's. (The left-hand mount is a spider.)

If  the stem bends to follow the shape of the leg..........

....the object will only have the two legs it came in on and no more. (Extra heads are another matter.)


A T bent to follow the outside of a curved rim carved on a jade ring. The mount is covered with 2:1 poly heat-shrink tubing.

When the object is installed - maximum "float" !

Here's another example of a T supporting under an edge, in this case the foot of this dish.

When the dish is put in place, the front of the dish rests on the deck and the foot is supported by the curved arms of the T.


The 3 spoons in this picture are all held up with T's. Here you can see the very long stemmed T that was hidden behind. This example very clearly shows how the point of contact chosen for the mount can make the object appear to "float".  Lots of fun.
