Steampunk alert! Also…model and jewelry maker alert! This pair of 10X acrylic doublet loupes is mounted on black eyeglass frames and flanked by LED lights powered by (2) included CR1620 button cell batteries. These are for close work only, from 1" to 1-1/2", and can focus only one lens at a time (not both on the same object) so if you’re a steampunker looking for a new accessory, plan on perching this rig on your pate or chapeau.
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.
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.
Work like a watchmaker with this extremely steampunkish clip-on triple loupe. In brass-plated steel, it clips on the temple of a pair of glasses with the three 15/16” dia lenses (2X, 2.5X and 3X) on 1-1/2” long arms that swing in and out and are adjustable via set screws. The spring clip for the glasses opens to 5/16”. Working distance is short like all loupes, but you’ll look extremely cool.
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.
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 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.
This handy little jeweler's loupe measures just 1" dia inside a 1-1/4" x 3/4" teardrop-shaped housing in red anodized aluminum. The glass is 10X and the housing has a small loop for attaching to a cord. Includes a plastic storage case. No self-respecting gemologist would be without one.
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, 2 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!
