    The glass slides do not fit, but I’ve emailed the info address and they are working with me through the problem.

    Wordpress seems to be stopping me from posting more, which is sad because I have a partial solution to my problem:

    This explains how to use the microprint slide – it neglects to mention that you need a very strong light source to see through it though: https://www.foldscope.com/user-guide/#microprint

    My suggestions:

    Please provide clearer introductory instructions rather than forcing new users to hunter around and learn about the product. I realise this post sounds like I was impatient, but believe me I’ve spent time trying to get this to work.
    The instructions should assume that new users may not know how fragile the foldscope is and if they didn’t assemble the foldscope may not know about features like the rear fold which clips magnetically to the lens area. They should detail how to insert a rigid sample, like the glass slides and explain what on earth the metallic microprint slide is for and how it’s used.
