Today I do no setting without the Meiji, although in truth I could
do all but the finest detail without it, but..... the quality of
the work I do under the microscope is simply much better than what
I can do under the loop as I was originally trained.
I feel the same as James.
I am very dependent on my Meiji. I use it with setting, hand
engraving, wax carving...any fine detail work. I would add that good
lighting is as important as magnification. If you can see it better
than you customer can, your work will always look good.
