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.
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….
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.
A nice 3X loupe, 2-3/8" dia, that folds into its own 3-3/8" x 2-5/8" tear-drop-shaped plastic case, and it's only 5/8" thick, just right for sliding into your pocket. Pay no attention the "6X" markings on the package-if mistakes didn't happen, we wouldn't be in business.
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.
This handy folding magnifier is 5" long x approx 1-3/4" x 3/4" thick with a 16X glass lens mounted above a pair of white LEDs. Unfolds to 2" long arm holding the lens above a 2-3/4" x 1-3/4" base. You add (2) "AA" batteries.
Magnificent magnifier lamp! Great for hobby work, stamp or coin
collecting, needlepoint, sewing and crafts, even reading if your eyes
are "mature". The plastic "head" assembly has a 3.5" dia, 3 diopter
magnifying lens and a socket with switch for an incandescent lamp (60
Watt max.) This is mounted on the end of an arm the other end of which
clamps to the table top. The arm has (2) roughly 15" long sections and
swivels at the clamp to allow precise positioning over your work. Plugs
into any wall socket. Basic black or white, it is a brand new good
quality item that you will find so useful you will wonder how you got
along without it!
Excellent quality 1-3/4" dia magnifier on a gold- or silver-colored, thin 36" chain with clasp. Package calls it 5X but our magnification guru says less than that at optimum focal length. Perfect for wearing to formal antique shows.
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, 10X, 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.
