How about three extra hands? This multi-purpose workstation tool has a large 3X, 3-1/2" dia LED-lighted magnifier on a 10" gooseneck (you add 4 "AA" batteries), a soldering-iron stand, cleaning sponge plus steel wool, a canister of flux paste, a pair of alligator clips with ball-socket mounts on the ends of a 4" rod plus an extra hand with a third alligator clip on a 10" gooseneck. It all weighs in at a stable 3+ lbs and has a 7-1/4" x 6-3/4" base so you won't need fourth hand to hold it upright.
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.
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 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.
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.
Low-profile reading glasses (AKA readers) with small 1-3/4" x 3/4" lenses. The frames are all the same delicate style and come in assorted colors to match the slim, plastic carrying case with the pocket clip. The plastic lenses are 1X, 1.25X, 1.5X, 1.75X, 2X, 2.5X, 3X. Our package of (3) pairs will be in assorted magnifications & colors (our choice). Note the incredible price -- these sell for up to $12.95 EACH at your local pharmacy!
Nifty in the extreme, this magnifier has (4) white LEDs plus a super-bright 1W COB LED putting out a total of 100 lumens, both around a 1-3/4” x 2” 2X glass lens (ignore the 3X on the box) on top of a 6-1/2” long two-part folding arm above a base that holds the (3) “AAA” batteries that it comes with free and gratis for no extra charge. The whole thing folds down into a 3-1/2” x 2-1/2” x 1-1/2” thick package. Like a bar of Ivory soap, or a pack of Gauloises regulars for you Parisian poets.
