After seeing some members writing about their stereo microscopes and all these wonderful tools everyone uses to really see very well, I started a search for a usable piece of equipment in my very modest price range. I ended up finding an old dissecting microscope at the school i work at to use until i find my own, but while online I stumbled across this little gem. It was $20, and is incredible as an inspection tool. The first picture is up close on an 18s balance cap jewel. Second is a working level where the scope is far enough away that i can get in there with tweezers and oilers. Then a pic of the pallet stones in the 6498 wrist watch i am wearing (dirty and dry!). Great for seeing the escapement in action, or oiling pallet stones! Since i unboxed this... i already see problems with lubrication. Balance pivots, train pivots and holes... i can see it all without jamming my whole head into the work with a loupe. Why post about this? I love it! Plus instead of trying to look through an eyepiece on a scope, you just look at the computer screen. (which will take some getting used too) You can take pictures like below, or videos. I used the video function to slow it down and check amplitude. Still working on figuring it all out, i'm not exactly computer savy. I actually just got this Chromebook last week, so still trying to figure everything out, lol. It plugged right into my Chromebook, and works great with pretty decent resolution. Its not a professional setup, but so far is working great for me! What do you think?
