I bought a 120volt computer fan at radio shack for $15 and the HEPA filter for a vacuum cleaner was $20. This is a pic of my two prize posessions, my pressure cooker and my bino-scope. I got them both for $300 7 years ago and have done and discovered so many things with them!

Now Nuecrew is telling me that he has his Tek down. Nice PC with gauge, and a microscope! I get by with a $20.00 loup... Since you have divulged the fact that you have a scope... Tell us what you see when you look at White Fuzz under magnification. And if you have ever seen cobweb under magnification I would like to hear your views... After all, you have the scope.

with that scope is it possible to isolate individual spores, and attempt monokaroytic sp?crossbreeding

The best thing for our purposes is the "Opti-visor".http://www.gibsonteched.net/R-RTS26.html The real copy comes with interchangable lenses and sells for under $40. Mine walked off somewhere last year. You can slap it on and your ready for hands free binocular up close work. I prefer it to my big glass magnifier or the scope. It's good to have around the house for just about anything you have trouble seeing.
I've seen so many cool things with the bino-scope. Spider fangs had to have been the creepiest! I can see a spore it it's in clear solution but I can't see cross linking. Mycelia looks like soft white snow(to me anyway). I can usually see the mycelia start a couple days before the naked eye can. I've seen nematodes inject their little needle mouths into mycelia to suck out its juice. I wish I had more magnification. Oh, well, I'm poor.
