Re: Zeiss small part Needed HELP

PeteM's suggestion is a good backup plan: 5) If you need other parts, buy a wrecked or partially stripped stand that has what you need. Alternatively you can post a photo of your spring loaded centering screw (the one from your condenser) in the parts wanted section in this forum and in https://www...

Re: Microscope part help

Jochen makes a good point. The early Standards, in which the RA was the first,have the Zeiss metal plate on the front of the base and do have the better 13 blade metal light port and iris. But, the only RAs I have seen, do not have the interchangeable objective turret. My RA, as you see the third f...
