Taking apart Jena Docuval

#1 Post by Piter_ » Thu Oct 24, 2019 10:05 am

Hi everybody
I have got im my hands an unfortunate Docuval microscope. yeas ago it was destroyed by animal right activists. So some parts of it were smashed and banded. Also after staying without work for more then 10 years crease got solidified in many places.
I have taken it apart. If someone interested to see how it looks inside here is an album. may be with time I will find some time to add photos directly here.

Too many 'projects'

Very unfortunate that this instrument was trashed Piter_. I wish you every success in restoring it to fully working condition.
