Models ES10 & ES20

Manual Test Stands

The ES10 and ES20 manual test stands are compact and economical solutions for compression and tensile testing of small samples. Choose between a lever (ES10) for quick-action testing or a hand wheel (ES20) for more precise testing with greater consistency in testing results.

Optional dial and digital indicator kits display up to 1" (25 mm) of displacement.

Use these stands with force gauges and grips to create complete and economical testing systems.


  • Small size
  • Compatible with all Mark-10 force gauges, accessories and grips
  • Mounting holes for bench mounting
  • Large base plate with 5 #10-32 UNF holes for fixture mounting
  • Competitor force gauge mounting kits available
