Choosing the Right Illuminated Magnifier

03-03-2012-05When working on small objects, there are a few things that you will need. At the top of the list of things that you should have is a good Illuminated Magnifier. This is a magnifying lens which is attached to a frame which lights up so that you will be able to see the item you are working on even better. The moveable heads and adjustable heads means that you will always have the ability to focus in on the work you are doing. Choosing the right Illuminated Magnifier can be difficult if you do not know exactly what you are looking for. While they all perform the same basic function, they have minor differences which will make a difference in the way you will be able to use them. For example there are lots of bench magnifiers, visual inspection systems and much more to choose. Lens Size and Magnification Power Whether round, elliptical or rectangular, there are a few different shapes and sizes you can choose from. Make sure that you will be able to get the lens which will make the most sense to what you are doing. Additionally, you should make sure that the lens will allow you to be able to get as close as you need to the object. Some will magnify closer than others. Choose the one right for you by trying a few different magnification levels to see which one is the right one for you. You might even find that you need a few different magnification levels in order to get what you need. Additional Magnification If you need to have additional magnification, some models offer an arm with a smaller magnifying glass for further magnification. This is perfect for when doing close up work on the objects that you are working on. If you are attaching a small wire or going through other delicate procedures, these come in very handy.
