Adapting the GRS Acrobat and Acrobat Versa stands for older Wild Heerbrugg (Leica) microscopes?

Hi everyone. I have watched these forums for years, but have been pretty silent. You have a great community here! Starting around 2004, I was a custom goldsmith for almost nine years before I headed into a new profession. Now I am feeling the itch again, and in the process of making myself a bench, and buying basic (but quality) equipment, including a microscope (& stand).

I bought a Wild M8 stereo microscope on FleaBay recently, and I wonder how hard it would be to mount it on either the GRS Acrobat and Acrobat Versa stand. Does anyone have experience with this?

(I'm not sure how the forum moderators respond to posting external links, so if this needs to be removed, that's fine. Instead, search FleaBay for "Wild-Heerbrugg-M8-Stereo-Zoom-Microscope-w-10x-Eyepieces-PLAN-1X-Lens" and you can see it in the completed listings.)

Thanks in advance for your reply.
