This extremely good quality folding jeweler's loupe is in polished
aluminum and folds into a protective cover. It measures 1-5/8" x 13/16"
and is teardrop-shaped when closed. Doublet lens, 18mm dia, 20X, lit by
(2) very bright white LEDs, powered by (3) button-cell batteries that
are included. It has a small loop for a chain, and comes in a plastic
case with a small tool for accessing the batteries.
Forget watchmaking, you could write the "A Tale of Two Cities" on a piece of tortellini with this triple magnifier visor. Magnifies from 1.8X to 4.8X. Has a permanent 2.2X lens, a flip-down lens, and a flip-down loupe. Separate white LEDs at each temple, powered by (2) "AAA"s each which aren't included. The whole thing is in a black plastic visor, 7-3/4" wide x 5-1/4" deep with a flexible plastic strap held by a hook-and-loop closure. Opens to 9" max dia and has coated acrylic lenses. Now then: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times….
Flat plastic Fresnel lens. This flexible magnifier is 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" and only about a millimeter thick. It is great when you need to scan a list or to look for something in a directory. You can see most of the page without moving the magnifier. Only about 1.5 power, but that can make a huge visual difference. The quality is not high, but neither is the price.
It is too a word. But never mind, this is a honey of an LED-illuminated, 8X magnifier with a 7/8" dia lens (ignore the 1-1/4" on the box) with an adjustable focus and a 10mm reticle marked in 1/10mm increments. Measures 1-13/16" tall x 2-7/16" wide OA with a 1-9/16" dia lens housing. Powered by (3) replaceable, and included, button-cell batteries.
This glass-lens 2X magnifier is a full 4" wide x 2" (wider than a column of newsprint) with a padded easy-to-grip 4" long handle at the bottom right corner, angled to the right. Slide the orange tab up and a pair of bright white LEDs illuminate the subject. You add (3) "AAA" batteries. The glass lens means it's much harder to scratch than plastic, so you can actually clean it with regular tissue or a handkerchief.
Designed for watchmakers, this aluminum loupe with a 1" dia, 10x glass lens snugs to your eye, but leaves your hands free, thanks to the flexible 15" headband that encircles your head. It has a 1-1/2" working distance, and would come in handy, too, if you poke around in needlepoint or manipulate anything miniature.
Sometimes a little loupe just won't do. Try this 20X, 1" dia glass-lens loupe mounted in a 2-3/8" x 2-3/8" x 1-1/2" black zinc alloy frame and lit by (3) white LEDs. Has a fold-out reticle under the lens and is powered by (4) button-cell batteries, included. Comes with a black storage case.
Well, okay, glass, because rubber is hard to see through, but the handle and frame are covered in black rubber. Approx 2" square lens magnifies to 4X. Has a 4-3/4" handle and a frame with (5) white LEDs and (1) UV LED on the business side, the better to see that tiny print, or to check out money, stamps, insects, etc. You add a pair of "AAA" batteries.
A Sherlock Holmes-type magnifying glass is good, but this is better. It frees your hands and throws light on the subject! This 120-volt magnifying desk lamp has a heavy 7-3/8" x 5-1/2" x 2" base with a power switch, standard lamp cord, and 11" gooseneck ending in a 5-1/4" dia shade. Under the shade is a circular fluorescent bulb and a 3-3/8" dia lens with a flip-back cover. The box says the lens is 5X, we think it's closer to 2X. Either way, it's a major improvement if you need help to examine scientific specimens, to inspect stamps or jewelry, or just to read. And we won't even talk about how your nail care is going to improve after you see your cuticles under this thing!
