The Shop Microscope is widely used as a universal measurer. Despite its small-sized and lightweight mechanism, it has very useful devices for practical efficiency. For example, its rack and pinion focusing makes operation very simple and smooth. Furthermore, observation in dark places is possible because it is attached with an illumination device using one penlight battery. Also, it has built-in precision scales for measuring. With the above-mentioned advantages, the Shop Microscope is useful in a large number of fields, including surface inspections, centering, blade inspection, measuring diameters of small holes, inspecting plates and printed matter, measuring meshes of textiles, inspecting yarn, inspecting skins, observation of slides, and in the electronics field.
