Leica GZ6 Stereozoom Microscope
Been repairing quite a bit of discarded equipment recently – it’s yielded some good finds. Pulled a broken Leica GZ6 outta the trash- with cracked plastic gears (apparently like every other GZ6).
It was super easy to disassemble and remove the gears – which I tried to super glue back together and use. The glue didn’t hold and after trying to find replacement gears at SDP/SI. I started googling for replacement microscope parts. After quite a bit of searching (which I why I’m posting this) I found them at Reichert.
All told, around $40 for a sweet stereo zoom microscope. It had eyepieces and part of a stand. I gotta build a stand and an illuminator, then I’m set.
