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.
