8X magnification, 23mm diameter lens.
With light and measuring scale
It's a little smaller (and far more powerful) than a reading magnifier, larger than a jewellers loupe, has space underneath to work with fine tweezers (like a small stand magnifier).
Measuring magnifiers are very specialist, and engineer's tend to use measuring microscopes. This is a cheap but effective option, you have to look hard to discern the tiny 0.1mm graduations but it is quite useable, and I do like the build quality, it does feel like an engineering tool and not a toy magnifier.
Nicely made, nice and solid.
