Microscop close up

The purpose of the course is to provide the confidence to tackle simple maintenance tasks and to impart the knowledge to enable faults in school microscopes to be identified so that standard repairs can be done.

Certain jobs such as repair of fine focus mechanism, will still require the services of professional microscope technicians.

Topics covered will include dismantling the microscope, cleaning the mechanical parts, lubrication, re-assembly and adjustment of mechanical parts and cleaning the optical components.
