{Summary}

From the German company Schweizer, 8X35 (8X magnification with a 35mm diameter lens).

A small illuminated magnifier with a very high magnification for reading, designed for those with the most severe eye conditions. Unlike the larger sizes you need to move your eye close to the lens, and you will only see one or two words at a time - HOWEVER, the clarity of the lens and the brightness of the light will enable many nearly-blind users to read.

Also good for very detailed examination of stamps and coins, small negatives, PCBs and other specialist work.

We also have several models of Schweizer on special special offere! There are several models but in very limited quantity (between 2 and 4 of each), click here to see them. eally tiny detail in negatives, tell-tale marks in stamps and coins that might indicate forgeries, you could even use it for PCB inspection.

Can be used as a handheld magnifier, but it is also designed so that it can rest on the page (more comfortable for prolonged reading). Very bright LED light.

When you click on the picture to see a some larger pictures, notice the view of some print through the lens, we have not 'enhanced' the photo to make it look larger, this is exactly how it looks through the lens.

{Price}

Why is the price is so low? (the retail price is over £60.00).

Because we bought a 'job lot' of Schweizer magnifiers from a large company - they bought them from Schweizer (i.e. these ARE genuine!) then decided not to deal in optics.

This does mean that once these have gone there will be no more!
