Step 7: Assembly
We are ready to assemble! Start with washers and nuts to hold the bolts tight to the base. Then add some upside down wing nuts and then washers to the two front bolts. Place the specimen stage on top of the washers and add a nut to each bolt. Lower them about 1/2” and rest the camera stage on top of these nuts. A level is handy here to make sure that the stage is actually flat. If you don’t own a level there are plenty of free level apps for a phone! When the stage is level both front to back and left to right, tighten down the final nuts.
