JAMES SMITH BENCH CONDENSER

Bench Condenser by James Smith The bench condenser, a commonly supplied accessory, focused a light on an opaque object from above, thereby serving a similar purpose to a substage mirror for transparent specimens. This example has several adjustments including the angle of the condenser and its height. The lens can also swivel. The base is lead-filled. The lens is planoconvex in design.
