University Surplus

My local university surplus has 4 "microscope cameras." They look pretty slick: :-)

Anyone need an Olympus stage and 5 objective turret? (My nemesis is high bidder.)

This would make a great Transporter pod: http://www.swapauction.wisc.edu/Listing ... hine-40082 :)

Just be sure to keep the flies out of it. :shock:

I wonder if the Olympus stage could be adapted to fit the LOMO L-2-2? That would make things a lot nicer. Hmmm...

thank you so much for this post on an auction, charlie/oregon-Wisc!

I keenly wish other universities alerted we forum mixroscopists to their offerings. charlie guevara

Do you know if they ship to other places or is it local pick up only?

I would pack up something purchased from one of these auctions for a forum member if wanted instead.

Charles' Transporter pod went for over $1100! :-)

And the microscope cameras seem to be of use to someone.
One bidder has all 4 above $65.

Wow on the pod...but I needed two of them... 8-)

I notice four others went for an average of about $85.

Sorry Charles; I see no more pods for sale.

Since I have Nikon lenses, I am interested in this:
http://www.swapauction.wisc.edu/Listing ... Unit-40193

Suppose to be one of the first 'Digital' cameras. Actually a digital add on and only about 1000 made and original retail price was $20,000 and they have two for sale.

How about something to slice and dice your frozen specimens?

Or, perhaps a corn husker? :-)

That knife holder looks like the ones I got in the package of five.

The corn husker would come in handy a couple days a year.. :)

They do have a bit of everything form a three piece drum set to massage tables. I wouldn't mind getting one of those imaging cameras to see what they do...

UW Swap is all about one stop shopping!

(Just so you don't get too carried away Charles, the husker is made for dried field corn!) :-)
Besides, sweet corn just isn't the same if not eaten off the cob.

Aren't the imaging cameras the same as the ones that went for over $200 before?
