Re: Looking for Leica Wild M10 user/service manual

I'm sorry for the very late reply.

No. It's better to have more light transmittance. I would chose the 404891 over the 180570.

Do a search on EBay now and you will find three 404891s.

Good luck!

Leica 10446300 Adapter Ring Needed

I recently purchased a Leica Near Vertical illuminator (part # 10445198) for my Leica Wild M10 stereo microscope. In order to get this illuminator to thread on to my M10, I need a Leica 10446393 adapter ring and a Leica 10446300 adapter ring. I was able to purchase the 10446393 adapter but I have no...

Need Focus Drive for Wild Heerbrugg M8 Stereo Microscope

I have a Wild Heerbrugg M8 stereo microscope with a stripped rack and pinion gear in the focus drive. I can no longer raise and lower the microscope. It just slips down. I have been unable to find a focus drive for it or replacement rack and pinion gear. Does anyone have a spare focus drive for an M...

Re: Looking for Leica Wild M10 user/service manual

It's a solid microscope! High quality. Thanks for your manual and brochure. I would recommend the Leica\Wild Heerbrugg phototubes: 404891 and 180570. I own both of these. The 404891 has better light transmittance in the photo mode. The 180570 loses 50% light transmittance in photo mode but the loss ...

How Do I Set the Zoom Magnification Range on a Leica Wild M10 Stereo Microscope?

I was very lucky to find a Leica Wild M10 stereo zoom microscope on EBay for home use after looking for almost a year. I'm having a problem setting the range of zoom magnification settings. There is a window next to both zoom knobs showing the zoom magnifications settings: 8, 16, 20, 25, 32, 40, 50,...

Re: Looking for Leica Wild M10 user/service manual

I played more with Acrobat and got the file size to 5.53 MB. This is still too big so I split the file into 5 parts with Acrobat.

Re: Looking for Leica Wild M10 user/service manual

I tinkered with my Adobe Acrobat Pro settings and with maximum compression I was able to get it down to 23 MB. I downloaded and installed Mass Image Compressor and compressed the jpgs that I originally scanned to 70% quality. I then went back to Acrobat Pro and created another PDF with the 70% quali...

Re: Looking for Leica Wild M10 user/service manual

Hello! Wow! I'm jealous. I use one everyday at work but I am in a quest to find one for home that I can afford. I scanned the user manual and converted it to PDF format but the file size is 148 MB. I need to find a way to reduce the file size so that I could send it to you easily if you are interest...
