Re: Delron swarf

It is pretty neat how the result looks like and acts like a spring.

Voice Coil

Hi Gang The attached photos require a back story. I have always been a music lover and even more so, an audio gear lover. I have always had high-end or pro-level audio gear for my home audio system, and I recently updated my speakers (about 3 years ago – not too recent). I was always a fan of Altec ...

Delron swarf

Hi Gang OK, I have submitted images of swarfs before, so let's recall (reference from the WEB): swarf: fine chips or filings of stone, metal, or other material produced by a machining operation I took a column of delron bar stock and turned a very fine hair. The resultant swarf is presented here. I ...

grizzled mantid

Hi Gang! I found this guy on the side of the garage and was going to put him down, but I experimented with doing a live shoot and the more I observed, the more attached I became! So here are several shots, and one was from a 5 exposure stack. It was neat watching this guy clean his antenna and front...

Script Lichen part 2

Hi gang

Here are a few more shots of another Script Lichen individual.

This guy is very small and I wanted to explore how it is attached to the side of the rotting tree.

Re: Script Lichen

Josh For my Mitutoyo objectives, I use an Edmund Optics 200mm conversion lens with a drop-in filter holder. I use a Edmund Optics polarizer when needed to take glare off certain types of surfaces. The Edmund Optics assembly is connected to a Nikon PB-6 bellows which is attached to my Nikon D850. You...

Re: fly

Wow.

I am so impressed at this shot as the detail and crispness jumps out.

So, once you perform your ultra sonic cleaning, how do you keep the hairs from matting as the specimen dries?

Rodent damage

Gang A guy I work with said he heard noise in his attic and discovered damage in part of the eave covering. He brought it to me and asked if I could get a good close up shot to verify it was an animal involved. Well, here it is. The evidence is overwhelming. Look at the curved gouges and how the mat...

Shavings

Hi Gang I was working in the shop making some trim material out of Maple, and I noticed an interesting result during the “rip” operation. The Maple shavings were gathering like a town meeting at the edge of the blade insert. Upon inspection, I noticed the material was forming a cotton-ball type clus...

Rare Multiphot parts coming available

Hi everyone

I have the following Nikon Multiphot parts and will be coming available as soon as I can determine a price.

I thought as a first step is to see if anyone is interested.

I can only ship to US and will consider Canada, but import taxes and shipping on the items make it too expensive.
