Make a Cheap $10 Microscope Stand for Your Smartphone
Buying a microscope for your personal lab or classroom can be expensive. We at E5 are constantly looking at tiny components and structures for projects. By using just $10 of supplies you can build a microscope stand that provides ample magnification for most tasks. All that is required for this setup is a piece of plywood, some Plexiglass, the lens from a laser pointer, small LED light, and some nuts and bolts to hold it together.
