    Cartridge Set Up

    Fremer mentioned in a recent interview, the utility of using an USB digital microscope to help in setting up cartridge SRA. They appear to plug directly into your computer and give adjustable magnification up to 200X. Anyone have any experience with these tools or is currently using one?

    Hi Brad,

    That appears to be a different unit than the one linked. I must say it would suit my situation better. Do you have a link?

    There are several models running from the cheapest that I listed for around $65 to over $400. They go from 200x to 500X mag that I've seen. What I'd like to know also is about the software and is there anything one could do to set up a "grid" so could roughly measure angles?

    Myles,
    Brad would be the one to ask this but, I think the software has way to check for proper SRA.
