Greetings kind people, Hope you are having a nice day:) There was a similar thread posted around the same topic, but a lot of those websites could not meet all my requirements so I'm here to seek help I'm looking for websites which are: 1) reliable and reputable 2) very inexpensive 3) ship internationally (particularly India) with good packaging and reasonable prices 4) good quality and vast collection 5) can provide most of my requirements in a single order(since I'll be shipping it to India, it would be economical to order everything from single website to cut down on transportation costs). I'll take down the post in case of violations of the guidelines. Please do let me know. Thanks in advance:)
I just send it to start making some stands for my fossils. This is my first one. It's a very simple one. I bought some brass rod at the craft store and decide it it was way too flimsy and not up to the task. so I went into the closet and pulled out a coat hanger that had plenty of patina on it. None of their decided coat hangers to the right materials I did a post on Facebook asking for people's old hangers. I'm going to cut all the straight portions of the hangers and keep them and toss out the rest. Soon I will be swimming in free wire to make fossil stands. And the older coat hangers have better color to them and brand new brass. You can get the pre-cut wood plaques and hobby lobby or Michaels for about $0.75. I very lightly staind the wood because I'm one of the possible to stand out. You can easily make these for under a dollar apiece without even having to cut the wood. Next will be time to see winter coat hanger solder together very well for more intricate stands.
I’m curious if anyone has any recommendations on cheaper microscopes that would be good for finer prep work. I have seen some very cheap ($30 or so) digital microscopes on amazon that seem to get good reviews. But I’m not sure digital is the way to go. I can’t afford more than around $100 right now.
Hello all! It's rather hard for me right now to take good photos of fossils, especially when it comes to close-ups or specific small details. That is, because I have an old iPhone 5... I'm not really willing to get a new phone anytime soon, therefore I am looking for a lens or small microscope I can attach to my phone in order to make detailed photos of small fossils. I've made a bit of research, but it didn't prove itself to be very useful. That's why I am asking your help: what do you think is the best lens/microscope I could buy (for a cheap price, no more than 20 euros/dollars)? Or, what do you use to make your photos? Thanks already, Max
