    Hey Guys, David I like the idea of having a crosshair or some kind of overlay with magnification for measuring, something I need to look into as I am really new at some of the machining techniques. tmac1956 here is how I set up the amscope, its all temporary but gives me good ideas on what I would want in the future when I become a millionaire 🙄 . I would love to find a large articulating arm and be able to swing a microscope over several different areas, I took out 3 of the 4 screws that hold the binocular part so I can swing the head over the lathe, made a wood platform to get height and a slight angle, I kept the scope together only so I can use it on the bench also.[attachment=2:1reoktw0]DSCN4473_01.JPG[/attachment:1reoktw0][attachment=1:1reoktw0]DSCN4474_01.JPG[/attachment:1reoktw0][attachment=0:1reoktw0]DSCN4475_01.JPG[/attachment:1reoktw0]

    Very nice setup. Thanks for providing the info.
