Recently I spotted a magnifier lens/stand for soldering purposes. I found this on a 10 year video from eevblog here. Until I can afford a nice microscope I have to work with this one.
I like that it has nice big lens offer 2.5x magnification. Doesn't take much diskspace. Good thing is that the actual stand is away from the lens. Which allows working with both hands under the lens much easier. Also the lens does not have a border which is also a plus. Less obstruction. Held only by a small piece of plastic which is connected to long bendable wire. The stand looks sturdy, I think it won't topple that easily.
Anyone know it's model name? Or a buy link for this specific model? It's spotted in Australia. Maybe some store there has one.
For comparison here are some that I can get locally, which by the way is TOTAL CRAP.
