I bought this specifically for bead weaving using tiny seed beaads. It is great for needle threading and of course for sewing throught the beads.
An added bonus............it doesn`t get hot.
It is easy to move out of the way when not required and then quickly return for use.
Delighted with it.

Works for me. Excellent quality for the price.

Enables me to view small components (down to 0603 size) for soldering and inspection. Illumination is good, and magnification ok. Clamp is completely metal, so may need to add some different material to protect bench or table.

Delivery was quick, and lamp was packaged well. Arrived in perfect condition.

Within half an hour of using this, a key nut fell off which fortunately I found. This was not a cheap product but someone over economised by not putting locknuts on the joints which would have cost a few pence to implement.

The magnifier is good though suffers, as they all do, from distortion at the edges of the lens. Takes a bit of time to get used to but lighting is very even and bright without glaring. Adjustment mechanism works but occasionally seems only just adequate for task of holding heavy lamp head in place. Again a bit more metal and bearing area on the joints would have made a better product. If you are going to constantly fiddle and move this around, spend a lot more but if its geting occasional movement, its fine.

Having the on-off switch on the lamp head itself is good, its just the weight of the bulbs transformer and associated gear that makes the head a little heavy for the arm

Note that the best magnification is by having the lens around 200mm from the item your working on. This means using heavy tools such as soldering irons is a bit restrictive but not too bad. If you need a wide field of view, go elsewhere, but if the item you need to see is about the size of a coffee coaster, you should be fine

It might be lecturing but seriously watch out for the lens near sunlight. That flap thing on top is to block sunlight as the lens and focal distance would very easily set fire to items under it on a sunny day in the right conditions. Use the flap!

I noticed that this product was being sold for considerably more on online craft sites, sometimes double the price.

Very good value for the money, and seems to work very well. You may need to work out if you need to have this on a base stand, rather than the clamp that is supplied.That was my thought, but I use a piece of wood in my bench vice,and clamp it to that if it's being used in the garage.The clamp is fine on the kitchen table etc.That is the reason I give it 4 stars.

I bought this product for hand sewing as I needed something for very close-up work. Using a side light left a lot of shadow on the work.
I used this for very tight hand stitched eyelets and rings for a period dress and made life very easy.
The magnifier was just right for the close work and the light gave me all round illumination. The clamp was easilly fixed to the table, allowing the unit to easilly be lifted in and out for use and storage without unscrewing the clamp.
Service was very good with prompt delivery on time.
Should have bought one years ago.

This arrived promptly and it is even better than I hoped. The lamp is excellent, the magnifier is clear and useful and the build quality is good. I should have bought one years ago! Recommended to anyone.

Very quick delivery, was here in no time at all and the magnifier lamp is great, was going to cut the lid that covers the magnifier off but after using it, its a great help when you just want an over the top focus light, great quality for the price and comes with a daylight bulb into the bargain has not all of the ones i looked at had the daylight bulb all ready installed and on this model shielded buy a plastic guard, very neat.
