BRASS JEWELERS LOUPE
NEW

Jewel Of A Loupe

It’s a little jewelers loupe. The loupe is little, not the jewelers, although they could be short, but we’ve never actually seen the jewelers who use these, so…oh, never mind--it’s shiny brass and would look jewel-like hung on a chain. Measures a teardroppy 1-1/8" x 7/8" x 3/4" shape, and folds out to reveal an 18mm dia glass lens with approx 10X magnification.

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.

Green Laser Pointer Par Excellence!

Da Mare could use this to point out cracks in the infrastructure at Wrigley Field. You, having a forgiving nature, will resist the urge to point out cracks in da mayor's infrastructure.

You can do all that and much, much more with the bright light from this 5mW green laser pointer. It's an unbelievable tool. If you need a laser pointer that seems to go on forever and is so strong that you can actually see the beam in the dark, it will be the best low-cost investment you ever made. Or the coolest high-end toy. The 532nm Class IIIa light is 5-5/8" long x 1/2" dia, with (2) "AAA" batteries (included), a momentary-on switch, pocket clip, and case. An absolute necessity for construction, surveying, warehousing, inspection and other large sites. And for playing in the dark.
