    I tried posting the other day but not sure it worked so sorry if this is a repeat. Anyone familiar with this scope? https://www.elecrow.com/digital-portable-1-600x-3-6mp-microscope-continuous-magnifier-with-4-3inch-hd-oled-display.html Hoping to get a different microscope that doesn’t need to be plugged into a computer. I take the sharpener with me slot and can’t always take a laptop with me. Any input of a appreciated. Thanks.

    I have no personal experience with that type of scope, but I’d be interested in your thoughts on it if you decide to get it. My suspicion is that it will be awkward to use because the screen is directly mounted on the scope itself. It doesn’t look like you can adjust the viewing angle of the screen independently from moving the scope.

    Alan, depending on the smart phone, or tablet you may have and the USB microscope model you may purchase, using an inexpensive adapter plug called OTG for “on the go”, you may be able to use the scope with your phone or tablet and not need a laptop.  I did this before I had a laptop.

    Ok thanks. I may have to look into that. I have one that I have plugged into my computer but haven’t really played with it much. I make do with a loop so far.

    The problem I see is that you’d either have to hold the entire unit over the knife while it’s in the WE vice or remove the knife and place in on a table under the microscope which would really be a mistake.  Every time you remove the knife from the WE, you lose the integrity of the alignment unless you have a jig or something that would guarantee correct alignment all the time.
