Renovating LOMO Biolam microscope 21/1/2018

Continuing from yesterday, Damian and I unbound the dovetail on the fine focus mechanism from its saddle plate – we have found that the fine focus on this microscope locks up as the grease dries and it takes a lot of work to sort it out. It is also possible to easily break some vital bits and – as we did – through away bits accidently – some like a curved springy washer might look broken – golden rule – be gentle and also don’t through anything away even if it looks broken when you are renovating instruments like this!

Andy & Damian
