Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
Good weight base
Fairly useful design
Average build quality
Screw clamp alligator clips unreliable
I am quite happy with this device, although probably would have chosen to have one with a light and I haven't found the iron holder much use (too cluttered). One of the alligator clips tends to fall out, and has to be tightened rather forcefully. I have bent the thin metal rim of the magnifier by a small bump, no big deal, not sure why I even mention it. Still, I do enjoy soldering without asking my companion monkey to hold wires or PCBs. In fact I have found using the magnifier and clips quite rewarding and an almost spiritual experience.
This may not be the cheapest value on Dx, probably due to the weight of the darn thang. However, it is useful for a vision impaired trembling ole geezer like me, just make sure you have a good light to illuminate your work area.
