Queens For Pennies Powerpoint Presentation
You can download the linked Powerpoint presentation below for a slide show to go with my article Queens for Pennies.
Updates: I recently tested several models of lighted magnifying headlamps available from Amazon and was most pleased with the:
Carson Pro Series MagniVisor Deluxe Head-Worn LED Lighted Magnifier with 4 Different Lenses (1.5x, 2x, 2.5x, 3x) (CP-60)
This magnifier costs a bit more, but is comfortable, easily adjustable, has a bright adjustable lamp that runs on AAA batteries, and comes with 4 lenses. The focal length of the 2.0x lens is about 6 inches, meaning that you’ll hold your eyes about 7″ from the grafting frame.
When you try the Chinese grafting tool for the first time, make sure that you gently bend the tab first toward the plunger side. It will then better follow the curve of the cell bottom. The slide in is best done quickly. Check each time to make sure that you actually picked up the larva on top of the jelly!
