Interested in getting a microscope for jewelry, hand engraving or stone setting? Wondering about whether a microscope with a camera is right for you? Tira will answer these questions and more on Microscope Monday. Using a live video feed from her studio, people can talk to her live and see the range of Leica microscopes most popular with jewelers, hand engravers and stone setters.
Tira will show the A60, S7, and S9 microscopes. Attendees will learn about the advantages of Leica’s Fusion Optics™ and how using a microscope can dramatically improve the speed and quality of their work. Even better, people can look through the S9i microscope with Tira on-line. To help understand trinocular microscopes more, Tira will also discuss the differences between the S9i microscope with an integrated camera and the S9D microscope with an external camera.
Registrants with web cams can show Tira their work space and get recommendations about which microscope and stand will work best for them. Sharing benches will also help Tira explain how work habits change when jewelers or engravers first start using microscopes. Changing arm position from shoulder height to elbows at your sides relieves back, neck and shoulder strain. That means microscopes will help improve the quality of your work and make you more comfortable while working.
There is a $5 registration fee for this session. Attendees will receive a $5.00 coupon to credit the cost of the session against the price of a microscope purchased from Engraver.com. Participants must register in advance. All scheduled Microscope Monday sessions are at https://www.engraver.com/microscope-monday/. The number of people in each session is limited. Registration fees will not be refunded to people who fail to attend the session but may be applied to future sessions.
