    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.
