    Swift microscopes unlike the older micrscopes use an animal based lubricant. When unused for long periods of time the lubricant dries and hardens. It is a $40 procedure to have the microsope disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. If the older microscopes, pre- and post WWI can harden and require new lubricants. The older models should be about $60 to be tuned up.

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.

Can you change a 3200 swift mono head with a binocular head and where can i find one


Yes, or providing they still make it. The monoc head is just held on with a thumb screw, and you can usually buy just the binocular head itself. You will most likely have to get the part through one of Swift Optical Instruments many distributors or dealers, but if you call Swift directly they will be able to direct you in the right direction: (877) 967-9438

I have a Swift SM80 microscope and we are seeing double images. I can't seem to adjust


Sometimes the eyepiece tubes get out of alignment. To check for this, look through the microscope. As you are looking through the scope hold the eyepiece tubes and see slightly "flexing" these tubes with your hands has an affect on the image. If your head is the problem you will be able to flex the tubes until the image is clear. You won't need alot of force. Do not use enough force to bend or break the weak metal. If this works your eyetubes and or head are misaligned. Unfortunately, once a head has been misaligned like this it is not practically repairable.

I need a condenser lense for my stage I just bought the microscope and its not there.


You can buy generic condensers off VWR, but you might be better off asking Ward's (www.wardsci.com) for the part, as they're distributing swift microsopes now.

Looking for objectives for Swift scope #622453


Swift microscopes use standard objectives. You can get those from basically any source that sells them like VWR, Fishersci, Wardsci, Carolina biological, etc.

I need a light socket and lamp for a Swift Eleven Ninety microscope.


Carolina Biological sells swift and carries parts for them. If this is not it, http://www.carolina.com/product/swift+upper+illuminator+lamp+m28hfz10.do?keyword=swift&sortby=bestMatches try calling them up and ask them if they have the part.

I seem unable to get a user or service manual online, however at a guess I would think that the retaining mechanism is inside the "head" of this beastie, so in order to access you would need to undo the screw that retains the viewing piece, this should give you access to the internals, however you have to be vary carefull that you do not contaminate the microscope. it may be easier to send it to be "cleaned" and hopefully when it returns it will have been tightened up.
