Large, mains-powered fluorescent light.

Comments

A serious large bench magnifier for craft work and repairs. Clamps to a table, fully adjustable.

- in the antiques and jewellery trades: for renovating small paintings or small items of porcelain or glass; for repairing small items of silverware or for jewellery.

- in electronics: comfortable for prolonged PCB inspection, sit comfortably, sit upright.

- hobby work, for model-making and very fine needlework, ideal if you have a hobby-room or shed where you can set this up. But it is quite large, you would not necessarily want one of these clamped to your kitchen table.
