Stage repair

Mechanical stages can loose bearings or have problems with rack and pinions or just need to be rebuilt. So if the stage requires a pair of pliers to move x or y - it might be time to get it repaired. The same goes with the controls you have moved but a lag in specimen movement. Get it repaired- its $45 plus parts (if available).

Focus repairs both fine and coarse

Before you end a microscope base with a drifting coarse focus- check the friction adjustment beside the coarse focus knob (if your scope has one)- that will save you some money. In coaxial focus sytems- fine focus shafts or spur gears need to be replaced- sometimes repaired. While focusing withe the fine focus- sometimes the image come into focus and then goes out again. Disassembly and rebuild the fine focus is what we would do to repair that problem. Focusing problems are $65 plus parts..

Repair of slide holders.

Is the spring in the slide holderbroken- we can fix it for you for $35 plus parts.

Condenser repair

Condensers can sometimes have leaf blooming problems-mainly because the leaves have oil on them- the oil gets nearly dry and "blooms" the condenser. Repairs are $65.00 plus parts if the parts are available.
