    Question Advice needed

    I have this item. http://tinyurl.com/ns2rq but when I had to make those fingers for my finger bowls I did the 2x magnifier was crap & the other ones were no better. I'm looking for a headband magnifier that can go from say 2x - 4x magnification anybody got a good supplier for a decent pair?

    I forgot where I got mine. Some places sold them with multiple lens for the same price.

    The one you have made me dizzy.

    I use the Bausch and Lomb one. I get mine thru a clock supplier. They work great.

    Thanks guys. Gordon it has also made me dizzy I've even had to get about 8" from the lathe whiloe wearing it so I could see while I was turning the fingers cause I made them with sharp parts & I broke a few cause I couldn't see the edge & the size of the finger was kind of delicate.
