    Smile Stylus microscope

    Hi there, I found a useful gizmo on eBay..... A 60x currency inspection microscope. About 4 inc p&p. So handy for viewing stylus wear. Recommended. I guess most of you know of this I just thought it so useful!!!!

    lol ,my eye sight isn't that good,i use a 25 x loupe,more for cartridge alignment,i always buy new or low hours cartridges so im not fussed about looking at the tip too much,if i do i use one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/USB-Micro...cAAOSww9xZBDTg

    the beauty of the ones above is you can view it on your pc monitor and take photos,see here for pics,

    the trouble with the one you bought is you have to get it so close to the tip to see anything your in danger of hitting the cantilever. just my opinion though.

    I have one of these. https://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk...4aArIiEALw_wcB

    Really handy for all sorts of things, including stylus inspection and examining surface mount components on circuit boards.
