Classic Optics Purchase and Shipping Information

About our Products:

Many of the microscopes and accessories offered are classic or antique, thus do not expect a "new or like new" item. We do strive to furnish nice, clean and usable prodcut, but remember, much of this equipment is 30-100 years old and will not necessarily be without a blemish or flaw.
 
Manuals and Brochures listed are in pdf format, most can be purchased via download. Purchasers will get and automated e-mail with instuctions for download of individual manuals, be sure your "SPAM BLOCKER" is turned off. The automated e-mail is tied to your IP address so it can't be forwarded and links expire in three days. If your time expires before you download, contact me and I can resend using the address provided by PayPal. For obvious reasons "High Speed" internet conections are recommended.
