Articulated Arm Stand for USB Microscope. We love pulling out our 5 Megapixel USB microscope for inspecting PCBs once in a while, but we really got to use it every day when we picked up this beautiful machined aluminum 3D stand. It has multiple articulated ‘joints’ for positioning the microscope in any way and is very sturdy and solid with a large flat base.
A single hand-friendly knob is used to loosen all the joints for positioning, then tighten it up to fix the position. The microscope is clamped in solidly but it can easily be removed by releasing the clasp for hand positioning when you need it. This is the best stand available for this microscope and it makes an excellent companion! Instructions here (PDF).
This is just a microscope stand, a USB microscope is not included! Please check out our 5MP USB Microscope in the shop to pick up a matching microscope.
