{Applications / Quality}

- for painting small models, fly-tying, repairing or inspecting anything small.

- for jewellery: gluing stones into costume jewellery, untangling chains, fine repair jobs.

- for reading (for the partially-sighted), a low-cost alternative to larger magnifiers.

Not quite what you were looking for? You want a magnifier that rests on the page for reading? We have a few of these, especially designed for the partially-sighted, see our rest-on-page magnifiers

Too large? Need a stand magnifier that is smaller (and more powerful) click here.

Not good enough?! Need a microscope? click here.

Almost right, but you DO need something considerably more powerful (a large single lens is ALWAYS low-power), AND it must still give stereo vision. Try the type of head-worn magnifier surgeons use click here. These are good for watch repairing or for work on micro-circuits.
