|Thread: Gillett & Sibert [Scottish microscope makers]|
Apologies - don't really checkthis forum and didn't get an email alert!
I'll check it now
Thanks Neil, OK Michael!
Funnily enough I am sitting next to the man who owned Gillet and Sibert. John Jardine is my father in law. We were just googling his name and company to see if he was anywhere on the internet. The company used to manufacture microscopes. It was acquired by Elcomatic. Elcomatic was formed by John and was more geared to electronics and made foetal heart monitors. When there was more of a call for electronic microscopes G&S closed but Elcomatic still made the odd microscope or 2 I believe. John was in his eighties when he decided to retire and hang up his hat. I don't know, but there is a possibility, that there is a microscope or 2 knocking around but I am aware that Elcomatic has changed premises quite a few times in recent years so things may have been thrown out.
If you have any specific questions let me know and I'll see if I can get an answer.
Best emailing as well....
