Looking for a drawing device for a Wild/Leica M8

Have a problem finding shops that sell specific materials? Ask here. Are you looking for microscope parts? Do you have anything to offer for sale? Note: this is not a section for external companies to advertise their products.

Looking for a drawing device for a Wild/Leica M8

#1 Post by Milou » Mon Nov 07, 2022 7:51 pm

Hello,

If anybody has such an unused drawing device for a Wild /Leica M serie, I would be very interested......


Anybody knows if ever adaptable devices could fit such M Wild / Leica stereo microscopes?

I have read that Motic has a competent Drawing Device. I believe model 1508.3 would be the right one, p/n 1101005900092, originally for the Motic K500/K700.

Some even say it's a slight improvement. Genuine wild ones do come up from time to time but it's irregular.

thank you for this Motic reference.
But unfortunately Motic doesn't sell it any more according to their European office.....

So only second hand could be found also for this model :-)
One is offered by Martin Microscope Company in US, but a very high shipping cost is required (140 US dollars ! to Europe !)

You might ask for a quote from tequipment.net (see REQUEST QUOTE under the price, then VIEW QUOTE, ....)

thank you very much John for the link!

I've got a quote, but finally to expensive to send from US and also French VAT ( a 170euros additional cost to seller price!!!!)......

Therefore I'll try to wait for one offered in Europe :-)

It says M5 but look at the mounting hardware.

Yes you are right, this model with Wild ref 308 700 is well adapted for a M8, as stated in its catalogue!
You are more attentive then me :-)
