Got my Foldscope a couple of days ago and today was the big day for assembly and exploration, or so I thought…
Because either the instructions are bad or there’s something wrong with the construction of my foldscope. Because I can’t get the slides to fit where I think they should go. The slots at the sample stage are 25 mm, the microscope slide samples in glass are 25 mm wide and can barely fit. The paper standard slide are 28 mm and they can not fit into the slots at the sample stage at all. Should I just make the slots wider with a knife? Or have I misunderstood where the sample slides are going to be?
It would be so much easier if there were instructional videos available actually corresponding to the foldscopes now being produced, all instructions I can find are for the old version:(
I really want to love foldscope because I think the idea is great, but right now I’m mostly angry.
