Carlos - my Leica scope sits on the stand that came with it when I purchased it from Tira. It has a lot of flexibility and is great for large items. But, when I am working on watches and other small items I attach my Leica to my old simple Amscope stand. For me that seems to be more solid especially because I have a bad tendency to press my eyes into the scope.
I bought the Leica A60 from Tira a few years ago and will say that the arm she sold with it allows me great mobility as I swing it over my engraving setup and also use it over my jeweler's bench with just a swing of the arm. It saved me from having to have 2 separate mounts/scopes and use it for everything from sawing with a jeweler's saw to using the flex shaft and over my watchmaker's lathe. It is a great scope, great setup and a joy to use.
Not trying to hijack Sam's thread but I thought it was a good place for it.
I have always used a copy holder with my stand so I can refer to the animal I am engraving. It has worked great for years but I thought I would step up to the 21st century. I now have an 8" tablet as my copy holder. It works FANTASTIC! You get a much sharper image to view and you can zoom in or out as needed. I just have a sheet of Lexan on the stand and clip the tablet on with those large paper clips.
I have the A60F version and love it for stone work. I have a 0.75/0.63/0.5 objective lenses. But i was not told i needed an extension ring. I will have to get one. Maybe a new stand too. Thanks for the information.
I bought the Leica A60F from Tira a year and a half ago and it has been great. I have it on my bench in my kiosk inside the Mall and use it for Engraving, stone setting and also for watch repair. The Focus on it is incredible, and you can zoom in and out with no issues, and like Sam explained the working area is just fantastic for what we do. I give an A+ from me, and I want to thank Tira for helping me with all my questions I had when I made the purchase, she is a wonderful person to deal with
