Microscope adapter

Post by dazz » Tue 05 Oct , 2021 21:44 pm

I purchased a Bausch & Lomb Stereo Zoom 4 microscope from ebay USA. This is for electronics, which use parts small enough to require a microscope to work with.

To reduce shipping cost, I found a microscope with a mount but no stand. The plan was to buy a computer monitor stand and make an adapter.

Although some surfaces were machined on a mill, most operations were completed on the lathe.
