{Summary}

*** Clearance - last few! ***

Light has three LEDs, adjustable (on a stem, like a Dalek's eye); can be switched to 'standard' (uses one of the LEDs) or 'bright' (uses all three of the LEDs).

Lightweight, adjustable headband.

Lenses can be swung up out of the way, e.g. if you can't be bothered to take it off each time you have a visitor or drink a cup of coffee.

Comes with a box containing four double lenses (they simply clip in): 1.2X, 1.8X, 2.5X, 3.5X.

Can be worn over the top of spectacles or without spectacles.

{Suitability}
Suitable for any craft or for simple engineering work.
The lower magnifications give a long working distance, good for working with larger objects, e.g. fly-tying, wiring in fuse cupboards or switch rooms (its high power light helps). The higher magnifications are suitable for smaller objects such as watch movements or PCBs.

{Technical Specification}
Marked 1.2X mag. (should therefore be about 8.5" working distance)
Marked 1.8X mag. (should therefore be about 5.5" working distance)
Marked 2.5X mag. (should therefore be about 4" working distance)
Marked 3.5X mag. (should therefore be about 3" working distance)

LENS MATERIAL: plastic

{Why?}

Why is this in the 'clearance' section?

Because it's an old model. The newer model (click here to see it) has a more comfortable headband and a slightly different light, the lenses are the same.
