THE STUDENT (FINAL FORM) (c 1890-1891)

final form of Bulloch student microscope

This simplest of all known Bulloch stands, which replaced his 'New Student' Model, and had coarse focusing by pushing or pulling the main optical tube. This then was a much simpler and cheaper instrument at less than half the cost of the 'New Student' ($14 vs $30 with one eyepiece). The limb inclines between uprights arising directly from,and cast into, the foot. Fine focus was by a fine screw tilting the stage. There was a wheel of apertures attached to the underside of the plain stage. The concave mirror could swing over the stage for illuminating opaque objects. It had a draw tube.
