just finished using this to repair a Sonicare electric toothbrush. The issue was that I was not able to turn it on or off and it turned out to be a tactile switch. I used the magnifier to remove the 5 mm (VERY SMALL!) tactile switch from the circuit board. I then used the 2.5x lens to see close enough to actually disassemble the tactile switch into its component parts, to clean the switch parts using small pick/scraper for electronics, re-assemble the tactile switch and solder the switch back to the circuit board. There is NO WAY I would have been able to complete this work without this headset. It saved me around $80 on the purchase of a new Sonicare toothbrush so it has already paid for itself!
Works as described. I got it to get back into building model airplanes. My old eyes don’t see close-up as when I built models as a kid. The unit was comfortable to wear for hours at a time. There are different lenses to help with viewing different details, and the light holds a charge. I used it for almost 12 hours with no need to recharge. I am very happy with this purchase.
Can be worn with glasses & paint respirator! I bought these for my husband so that he could work on painting the intricate details on his models. They can be used with his glasses and his paint respirator. He keeps telling me how much he loves them and was surprised at how inexpensive they were.
My eyesight has deteriorated over the years, and even with up to date glasses I need to magnify close up work in the workshop. These magnifying glasses do the job very well and are excellent value for money. I have taken off the arms and rely in the headband which works better if you wear glasses.
I wish I would have got these much sooner!!! They are a fantastic help to me when beading and trying to find and see the hole, especially on darker color beads. They have a built in LED light and interchangeable lenses, depending on your needs and type of magnification you need. Plus they also come with an elastic headband if you don't like the eyeglass style brackets over the ears, they pop off very easy and the provided elastic headband can be attached instead. Both lenses and light are adjustable, in a up-down motion. Very affordable for what you get and I'm happy with my purchase!!
Lighting the way! I love these magnifying glasses. I use them mostly with the enclosed headband, which I find more comfortable, because my head moves around a lot. The nose piece is adjustable as is the headband. I’ve found them very useful while I do 5d diamond painting. I find it so much easier to see the drill and the canvas.
