A toolmaker's microscope well suited for measuring linear dimensions and angles of features on small workpieces with the XY stage and rotating eyepiece scale. Micrometer heads are optional to enable a choice of digital or non-digital types to be fitted. The microscope can also be used to check the form of screw threads and gears by attaching an optional reticle from the wide range available. The compact body makes it ideal for use on shop floors with limited space for measuring instruments. Standard magnification is 30X, which can be increased up to 200X with optional objectives and eyepieces or reduced to 20X by interchanging the eyepiece.
