Very Sturdy and well made, Great for stamps/coins – Texture Magnifier with Scale Pointer Reviews

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

Pros:
Very sturdily made of metal not plastic. The lens is good glass not plastic. There is a small pin and scale with adjusting screw for measuring one small part versus another. Folds down for compact storgae. Nice attractive storage case.
Cons:
Well, I wish they made one like this but bigger for fine detail work.
Other:
I initially thought this was larger and was surprised when it came to see it was smaller than anticipated, however on the website it plainly states the size, my mistake.
Bottomline:
Very good for stamps, gems, coins, looking at small printed stuff on pc parts etc. More for small parts use than for working over a motherboard, which is what I wanted.

Price cannot be beat.
