Question about Wesco WS7 Microscope

1 Answer

Double vision I recently took apart my WESCO 3000 series microscope to fix a slipping adjustment on the zoom control. After taking it apart to far, removing the lenses from the little shafts. I put it back together and now the left eye and right eye see something different. The left eye image seems to be a little bit larger on up to the left and the right eye image is slightly smaller down to the right. So when you look through both lenses you go cross eyed. Not sure how to fix?

Re: double vision

It looks like when you took this apart you did not alignt the lenses properly, there should be a locating groove or stub which these lenses should fit to... it looks like they are pressing against the stub but are not located properly, hence the distortion. try taking it apart again....when you put it back together again the fault may have gone.

The small knob that moves the slideto the left or right on the platform (the one furthest from the observer) is slightly loose, and instead of rotating in a smooth circular motion it rotates rather...

The knob you are talking about is called the x-axis control knob. It does not directly affect the focus. What affects the focus is the slight manipulation of the stage and or slide while you are adjusting the x-axis control knob. It only takes the slightest pressure to throw the focus off very far. Theoretically you could completely remove the specimen holder and move the slide around with your fingers.
The specimen holder may need to be replaced but without further more detailed knowledge of the mechanical problem I cannot instruct further.

Need a reference manual for swift nine fifty microscope

Swift microscopes, as far as i know, don't readily come with a users manual like one would find for a standard home device. Nine fifties are of the simplest microscopes around, any guide to microscopy will do as a user's manual. As for repairs, anyone that is mechanically inclined and with the right tools (allen hex keys, screwdrivers, pliers, lubricant) will be able to fix one after a few minutes of tinkering with it. Don't panic.
