Even more interesting!

Still, even if it goes cheap I have nowhere to put it, so I am not going to bid. Wish others luck!

I put in my bid ... but clearly wasn’t mad enough :(

It sold for £539

"11 CONCLUSIONS

With relatively cheap and simple means and appropriate calibration procedures, a Zeiss Linnik-type
interference microscope was updated to a 3-D surface metrology instrument with capabilities in the
nanometre region."

Thankfully ... not very close

I would have been really upset if I had missed it by a few £

Bidder 2***2 came in very late, and obviously wanted it !
