Previous owners (757 Labs, another hackerspace) attempting repairs compiled some information at:

Additional Resources

  • The original S200 operating instructions are available at the space in a three-ring binder near the machine.
  • If possible, members will also have access to a PDF copy of Scanning Electron Microscopy - A Student's Handbook, 1980, self-published by Michael Postek, et al. This book was widely used by microscopists and is still regarded as a good learning reference, but the original binding is rare and prone to falling apart. It might be possible to use the PDF copy for private, educational use.
