Introdução

My microscope is old (very old) and before throwing it away, why not teardown it?

NB: If you notice that there's too many errors (in language, mostly), please correct me. Thanks.

Este teardown (desmontagem analítica) não é um guia de reparo. Para reparar seu/sua Microscope, use o nosso manual de serviço.
