Good evening fellow Ganoksin members!
As a long time browser and occasional poster i feel like the time
has come for a bit of advice from the herd. So I’ve been a jeweller
for around 5 years now and think my skills are pretty damn competent,
of course there is always room to get better, and I dabble
occasionally in a bit of setting.
Now I don’t have much setting experience, I can hold my own with
some of the basics, but still find myself outsourcing a large
majority of work because I know I’m not nearly good enough… yet.
After perusing the pages of ottofrei.com I came across the Meiji
microscope with the GRS acrobat stand, truly was love at first sight,
I figure If my setting can look good under magnification it will look
fantastic without. At least that’s my theory, as well as the added
advantage of less eye strain(those late nights are really getting to
me at the tender age of 22!).
So basically what I’m asking is does anyone here have any experience
with working under microscopic magnification? Be it engraving,
setting, whatever… Is there anything I should look for, avoid, is
it a waste of money? Is the Meiji brand any good?
All input is greatly appreciated!
