1-inch Texture Close-up Magnifier – 1-inch Texture Close-up Magnifier Reviews

Pros:
This is a handy magnifier for small work. I use it to check my cross-stitching and in my jewellery-making. It is sturdy enough and leaves one's hands free. I also like that it comes in its own little cardboard box, keeping it secure between uses.
Cons:
It is quite a small magnifier, so its uses would be limited. It is obviously too small for reading small print, for example. I am also worried that the hinges, being plastic, may eventually wear with more use, making it less stable.
Other:
It would be nice if the item came in a metal model, to withstand more frequent use without wearing on the hinges.
Bottomline:
If you have a job or hobby with very small pieces or fine work, this is a handy little tool to have. for checking your work. The price is low enough that you can replace it if it wears at the hinges.
