Each kit also includes one frame for positioning the transilluminator inside the enclosure. Select from the Large, Midi or Mini frame size in the options above.
Assembly of the kit takes approximately 30 mins and the kit includes all of the hardware plus a mini screwdriver. No other tools are needed. The assembly instructions along with a list of Kit Contents are included in the online User Manual.Specifications
