Useful for smd work – Dual Side 10X 18mm + 20X 12mm Jewelers Loupes / Magnifiers Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Very well made jewellers loupe. It has glass lenses. Magnifies well, I enjoy using it to check out solder joints. Especially good for small stuff like smd components and to find hairline cracks in circuit boards. The big lens has a bright image.
Cons:
The combinations of lens diameter and magnification are a bit unusual. The smaller lens has higher magnification, but is less bright and distorts the view toward the edges a bit. It is bigger than a single lens loupe.
Other:
I only really use the big lens. I like the folding mechanism a lot, it works well. Otherwise not much else to say....
Bottomline:
Worth the money, but a single lens loupe would be just as fine. so maybe you should buy one of those instead.
