Is That A Loupe In Your Pocket?

Why yes, it could be. Most jeweler’s loupes are too bulky to slide into a pocket, but this 5X version has a built-in tweezers and folds to a slim 2-1/4” long x 1” x 1/2” thick. Doublet lens is 15mm across in a plastic body. There’s some slight edge distortion, but for the magnifying power, size, and convenience, it’s hard to beat.

Test Your Linens

Or don't. Maybe you’re like us and you just like to take a closer gander at stuff. These magnifiers are called linen testers because they have a measuring grid so you can count threads. But the tester doesn't care if you actually count threads. Use it for anything you want to see up close in a grid—or just anything you want to see up close. You pick: the small one with a 2-1/2” dia 2X lens that opens to a 4” height and folds down to approx 4” x 3” x 3/4”; or the large one with a 4” dia 2X lens that opens to a 7” height and folds to 6-1/2” x 5-1/4” x 1-5/8”.

Insect Inspection

When you peer through your magnifying glass at this specimen, or focus your microscope on it, even at the lower magnifications which work best, you're looking at one big bug. Make that (4) big bugs. The insects are real, encased in clear acrylic blocks 1-3/4" x 1-1/4" x up to 11/16" thick, and ready for inspection. Set 1 includes a scorpion, giant ant, wasp and a flower bug. Set 2 is a cricket, locust, yellow leaf beetle, and crab. No, not a crab louse or a crab spider, but definitely a crab ugly.

A Pyramid of Prisms

Polished glass equilateral prisms. Equilateral because each edge of the end is the same length, 32mm. Thus, as all you geometry students know, each of the angles is also the same, 60 degrees. These are school grade and are fine for decorative and demonstration. They do a nice job of refracting light to produce a nice rainbow-like spectrum, but are definitely not up to instrumentation standards. The missing dimension, length, is shown below.
