After seeing a mini drill press here on Instructables, Idecided to sacrifice a microscope i wasn't using anymore.

Step 1: Procure A Functioning Microscope

This microscope came from the thrift store, so I wasn't too concerned about taking it apart. Plus it didn't allow enough clearance to do micro soldering like I had hoped. However it does have a nice dual speed focuser which will be handy for those precision jobs.

Hey, AstroGeek, you're the greatest. But...you didn't put a link to the Micro Drill Press that I posted last year. So I'll do it myself.

Yes. Just needs reassembly.

Microscope is probably for you is a less useful tool than stand for drills. As microscope can continue to use it?

I can't accept all the credit. I saw the original idea here. Great place for inspiration.

This is so great, I'm definitely keeping an eye out for a cheap microscope.
