Looking for feedback before I purchase a microscope(s?) for our
shop. I am possibly buying a Meiji w/ Acrobat for our shop w/ two
jewelers. We would also have to buy a new bench to mount this so we
can share. This is not ideal,I want us to each have one.
In researching, I found a company in California (AmScope.com)
selling a chinese microscope where the optics are made by the folks
making Leica, Zeiss and so on.
This is on a boom stand instead of the articulating style of the
Acrobat. The attraction being the price.
The scope and stand are 1/4 the price. So I could buy two. I do not
currently,nor have I ever worked under a microscope, except in our
Laser welder every day.
I havent become used to any style.
Are the boom stand style awkward?
I am looking for feedback if anyone works with one other than a
Meiji and acrobat.
I know the Meiji and Acrobat are the cream of the crop,but that may
be outside our budget for the amount it will get used. I personally
will use it asmuch as needed.
Here is a link to see the Amscopes.
Thanks all! Be safe. Wear those respirators and glasses.
