 2.) There are two versions of the Zeiss Universal microscope. ​ One version like the one shown in the photos in this installation document has black plastic focus knobs. ​ The fine focus shaft for this version has a 5 x 0.5mm thread. ​ The other version of the Zeiss Universal has silver focus knobs. ​ The fine focus shaft for this version has a 10 x 0.5mm thread. ​ If the version of your microscope was not known at the time of the order two brass clutch plate assemblies have been shipped. ​ Please return the unused brass clutch plate assembly to ASI. 2.)

 3.) To install the clutch plate the original fine focus knob must first be removed. ​ To remove the knob use a small flat blade screw driver , or 0.05” Allen wrench, to loosen the set screw located on the side of the left fine focus knob.  After the set screw has been loosened, the left fine focus knob can be removed. To remove the left fine focus knob securely hold onto the right fine focus knob with one hand and unscrew the left fine focus knob by turning it counter clockwise. ​ It may take some force to loosen the knob, but if the set screw has been loosened, the knob will unscrew. After the knob has been removed check to see if a washer is stuck to it.  If there is a wave washer stuck to the inside of the knob remove it and install it on the recess inside of the clutch plate. 3.)

 4.)  After the original left fine focus knob has been removed the clutch plate can be installed by screwing it onto the fine focus shaft. ​ Before installing the clutch plate make sure that the wave washer is installed on the clutch plate and that the nylon stop located inside the threaded portion of the clutch plate is not protruding into the threaded area.  If it is loosen the setscrew and press the nylon stop back.   Screw the extender all of the way onto the shaft so that the wave washer is compressed. ​ After clutch plate is at the proper position use 5/64” Allen wench to tighten setscrew. 4.)  After the original left fine focus knob has been removed the clutch plate can be installed by screwing it onto the fine focus shaft. ​ Before installing the clutch plate make sure that the wave washer is installed on the clutch plate and that the nylon stop located inside the threaded portion of the clutch plate is not protruding into the threaded area.  If it is loosen the setscrew and press the nylon stop back.   Screw the extender all of the way onto the shaft so that the wave washer is compressed. ​ After clutch plate is at the proper position use 5/64” Allen wench to tighten setscrew.
