This device is used to analyze the purity of honey. I am not a bee keeper, but I will be by next spring. This polariscope was made for the local chapter of Raritan Valley Beekeepers Association.
Made of plywood and pine and paint.

Looks neat. how does it work? Good luck on the beekeeping I know it is getting tough to keep bees these days. The beekeeper at my work said they are down quite a bit from last year.

Looks Great – I’m hoping that the BeeKeepers know how to use it.

Use of Device. The polarizing film is placed in the holder in the crossed position, showing minimum light transmission. The sample is placed be- tween the polarizing plates and examined for crystals (large or small ir- regular bright particles) or dust (threads, specks of light). Pollen shows as bright points of light, and should not be considered in this examination. It will be reflected in the score for clarity if sufficient is present to affect it.
