Odd WTB this, I was just in touch with J7 at Audio Origami, his old microscope has given up the ghost and he's not able to do cartridge inspections any more. 

Anyone know of any other UK-based individual able to provide this service? (With photos).

I have a cartridge I'm not using much that I'm pondering selling, which I will do if the tip is in the good condition I expect it to be. In which case it would be useful to have some photos to prove the condition.

If it's not as I expect it to be then I'll need to decide a different course of action, possibly back to the manufacturer. 

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Grab yourself one of the usb microscopes from eBay/Amazon, plug it in your computer then view and take your own photos. Decentish scopes can be had for under £25.

I have both a USB scope and a very good full frame camera with macro lens...

I'd be happy to do photos for you...

I’m struggling with USB one, it’s apparently 40-1000x. It’s usable but probably needs less shaky hands and cartridge on the table.
