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….
This XL magnifier measures 3-3/8" dia with a 5" long handle, all rubber coated. Glass lens is 1.5X and surrounded by (12) bright white LEDs that run on (2) included "AA" batteries. Tap-on, tap-off switch. Good for everything from reading to looking at bugs and such.
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.
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.
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!
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.
This giant loupe has two fixed 2" dia acrylic lenses in a swing-away 3-3/8" x 2-3/8" x 1-3/8" thick matte black plastic teardrop-shaped case. Magnification is approx 5X, not the 10X on the box, which is why this is a surplussy two and half bucks. And you throw the box away anyway.
