You mentioned using "an $8 USB Microscope". Where in the world did you get a microscope for that low price?

Thanks

Put some paper under it, you can see just how "messy" the make-up of the fibres is.

foam board minus the paper coating or the insulation kind would be cool.

Crack open an old chip to get at the wafer (there's an 'ible on that somewhere) and put the wafer under the scope.

I tried that earlier today, but I couldn't see anything under it... You could faintly see a couple of traces, but the rest just looked like a glob of silver, even under 200x, which is the max on my cheap microscope, oh well
