A Bit Too Powerful – 20x18mm Jewelers Loupe / Magnifier Reviews

posted by ColdSteel on 06/08/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Good quality, glass lens, small, easy to carry.
Cons:
30x instead of 20x, a bit too powerful for general use.
Other:
Good for splinters, detail work, lace hole too small for anything other than dental floss. The plastic box should be changed to cardboard and a pouch provided to protect finish. It's also nice to see a glass magnifier instead of plastic.
Bottomline:
Small, inexpensive glass magnifier that would be far more practical at 20x. Box says 20x, but the glass itself is labeled 30x. The field of view could be just a bit larger, but it's a handy magnifier.
