    What is a microscope doing on a crossbow making forum?...I thought you'd never ask. Very Happy

    The fella in the provided link is way beyond what is considered enough to get the job done...the link to that model is just to show how great the prices are on that website. They are a great company and I own a few of their microscopes both at the lab and at home...for wax carving(and engraving) I pretty much only need the microscope with 1x-3x objective, 0.5x auxiliary lens(for extended working distance), 5x magnification eye pieces, and the ring light that mounts to the objective head...That's it. sunny

    Thought I'd also mention this(in addition to what the site says)...The binocular head can be rotated to the full 360°(horizontal) and is 45° Inclined(vertically)...the stand allows to easily change the height of the head and focus it with the integrated side knobs(very smooth stuff)...what it can't do is change angle of the head, the 45° degree setting is fixed in this stand...I'm an average guy when it comes to height and complexion and feel very comfortable when using this unit, but there are other stands on the market that have more position adjustment features and like everything "extra" it also costs a little "extra".

    Hope this info helps those looking for a great microscope at a great price...Good luck with your projects!
