Loupe getting you down?
I have had several magnifying glasses, and I currently have a 30x microscope from radioshack for checking my edges.
I was looking to buy a loupe, in either 10x, 15x, or 20x.
So I was at Harbor Freight, the Toys R Us for DIY'ers and people needing a disposable tool.
They had a multipack of loupes, from 2.5-10, but crap lenses, warped plastic.
I look over, and see a "jewelers loupe" with two lenses, and a clip to go on the earpiece of safety glasses. $4.99. 3.3x, 5x, and combined to 16.5x (Item # 94364 )
So I buy it, and head home. Only problem is my safety glasses are AOSafety wrap arounds, and the lenses couldn't physically go in front of my eye.
So, I break out the dremel, and "modify" my glasses.
I drilled a hole right in the bridge, undid the clip end nut, pushed the shaft of the loupe in, and locked it down tight. It looks goofy as all get out, but it works! 100% hands free (other than pulling down the lens/es)
