William, Tmac,
For those of us who no longer have a young man’s eyes the microscope is a godsend. I bought an AMSCOPE a few years ago and have been very pleased with it. There are also systems that plug into a computer, blowing the image up on your screen, but I have not checked them out; they might be very good. I am sure some of the other members have these and perhaps they will post a comment on the forum. In any case it was a real shock to look at a beautifully crafted watch movement under this level of magnification. The only watch parts that still had a high precision look were the jewels.
