Articulated Arm Stand for USB Microscope

by dampa4 on Thu Feb 06, 2014 9:59 am

I bought the 5M USB Microscope (love it) and the 'Articulated Arm Stand for USB Microscope' back in September. I have 2 grandsons (3 and 1 3/4) that are fascinated with the things we look at (ok, so am I and the kid's dads :D ).

Well I went to clamp on the scope the other day and 'snap' the holder broke

I purchased the WiFi portable microscope and Articulated Arm Stand that are shown together in a picture on the website. However, when I attach the camera to the stand as shown in the photo, the wire clip at one side of the clamp separates from the clamp. See photos. The smallest diameter of the camera is at the end as shown in the web photo, but the taper at this end does not allow the camera to be secured without severe stress on the clamping setup. This setup doesn't seem like it will hold up very long. Any experiences with this?

its not ideal but if you remove the rubber spacer it should clamp *DO THIS CAREFULLY TO NOT BREAK THE CLAMP!*
