2X90, 2X magnification, lens diameter 90mm.
Extra (inset) lens 4X20 (4X magnification, lens diameter 20mm)
An easy-to-adjust magnifier on a stand, with a large horseshoe base and three ball-bearing joints. Also a soft protective pouch for the lens.
This isn't large enough to fit both hands underneath (for large items), I wouldn't pretend that this is suitable for full-time professional use - but it's fine for working with small items such as jewellery, beads, very fine painting etc, and the swan-neck stand makes it easy to position at any angle. Working distance is five inches.

To assemble, you must loosen a screw slightly, then gently slip the ball bearing of the stem into the horseshoe stand, then tighten the screw. However, there are no instructions - we are hoping that anyone skilled enough to use one of these will also be skilled enough to work out how to assemble it.
