Microscope --> binoviewer?

I got ahold of 1 each Carl Zeiss, Leitz and Nikon research grade microscopes. The Zeiss and Leitz are missing the objective lenses but have the entire eyepiece assemblies. The Nikon is missing the eyepieces.

My question is would I be able to convert any of these into a binoviewer? When I get them home, I'm going to check the eyepiece diameters and things. They appear to be very expensive microsopes, having polarizers, camera ports and all kinds of things. I know they aren't that old because the sample tray is motorized on the one.

The next 4 posts are a few quick images of the Zeiss microscope head that looks the most promising. I will try and remember to bring the Leitz head for some images this week.

Any suggestions on how to modify this or even just a simple "that may not work..."?
