These pocket magnifiers have a sliding frame of black plastic that covers and protects both lens surfaces from dust and mechanical damage. The frame also acts as a gripping handle when in use. They are composed of bi-convex lens with strong curvatures of crown glass and 2 negative meniscus lenses of flint glass.

Cat # Description Price
031700 Magnifier 5x -
O31705 Magnifier 10x $60.00
O31720 Measuring Magnifier 30x $110.00

A series of simple magnifiers, very handy for EM, microelectronics, and other purposes where an inexpensive, yet satisfactory, magnifier is required. A plastic tube allows light to enter from the outside, helping to illuminate the subject. No focal adjustment is required; simply set the fixed focus magnifier on the object. As magnification is increased, the optical complexity increases. The 15x model has 3 elements, while the 22x model has a 3-component 4-element construction. The 30x magnifier has excellent optical correction almost comparable to that of a compound microscope. The image is erect and one can hold the object in one hand while in the other viewing with the magnifier.

This Pocket Microscope has sharp resolving power throughout it's field of view, yet is designed to give a bright image. It is lightweight. To focus, hold it so that the notch at the tip of the plastic cylinder faces you. Then place the center of the lens directly above the specimen and tilt the cylinder back and forth until the sharpest image is perceived. Four magnifications are offered. Size 12.4mm diameter x 127mm.

Built-in precision scales (details below), lightweight, small size and easy to use with a rack and pinion focusing mechanism. A penlight makes it possible to use the shop microscope in darkened areas. The opening at the base makes it possible to introduce not only the penlight but also other objects.

In use, the fixed scale is first focused by rotation of the eyepiece. After this is done, final focusing of the sample is carried out with the focusing wheel of the rack and pinion mechanism.
