Damian gets to grip his new project the second hand LOMO Biolam microscope

Another ebay purchase – a nifty little version of a very famous microscope. This one came fully loaded with rotating stage, dark field condenser and binocular head, which is unusual. It is a bit of a project and Damian has been getting to grips with this over the last week or so. Today, he was dismantling and re-greasing the stage. He has had to buy a replacement stage as the original one had significant problems but even with that added cost the instrument is a real bargain and a beautiful bit of kit to boot!
