A Holmes style viewer was the inspiration for this beautiful hardwood stereoscope kit.

Although competitive makers claim "innovation" with a wider hood and viewing area, we at "Lucas-Price" have been building stereoscopes, and stereoscope kits, with this feature (widening of the hood to provide a comfortable fit for people wearing eyeglasses) since 1996. Other design changes, and true innovations attributed to the "Lucas-Price" scope include; - the "Dummy Dot". A plug at the end of the focus rail which keeps the focus bar from sliding off the end and becoming separated and lost; - the "Stay Put Focus". This feature keeps the focus where you set it for easy viewing in any position; - the "leatherette hood" provides a soft area to rest on your forehead unlike uncomfortable, and sharp, wood or tin hoods; - the "lack of a septum" which (in most cases) is a non-functional obstruction that just gets in the way, or breaks off.

This kit is designed for young and old alike. By using furniture quality, properly cured, hardwood (Walnut), and scratch resistant polycarbonate lenses(use compressed air or a soft 100% cotton cloth for cleaning), it presents well, and should last long enough to become a family heirloom. Almost indestructible, it's safe for youngsters to use, unlike scopes with hoods made of tin (that could develop a sharp edge), or thin wood (that can crack and splinter). All parts are secured with brass screws and tacks for a solid assembly.

The kit comes complete with ;
- Parts and instructions for building the kit.
- Some history on the stereoscope.
- Instructions for taking your own 3D photos with a 35mm or digital camera.
- Some sample views for immediate gratification!

The stereoscope can be put together in less than an hour and will be a treasured heirloom for years to come. Using the finest in furniture quality timbers, and exceptionally high quality injection cast lenses, this kit is of wonderful value for the money. Previous clients have said;

" I bought one of your kits last month and just put it together this weekend. I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with it. Assembly was a no-brainer and the finished product looks great and works perfectly."

" I am very happy to have 2 of your stereoscope replica kits. They are used in an exhibit at the New Jersey Historical Society in which some of the "hands-on" portions will include historical "stereoviews" of New Jersey. Your kits are perfect for the exhibit as many people will be handling the stereoscopes."
