My Microscopes: Wild M8 Stereo Microscope

Wild M8 Stereo Zoom Microscope

This microscope dates from the 1980s and is an excellent zoom stereo instrument. I have replaced the lamps with LED illumination, as the filament lamps generated a lot of heat. The arm mounted lamp has been replaced with an LED spotlight and the light in the base replaced with an LED module.  I have also fitted around the objective a home-built LED ringlight made from a car headlamp LED ring:

Push-fit Ringlight

This has a home-built housing made from black polystyrene plastic card. It is a push fit into the Wild M8 objective.

It provides very even vertical illumination.
