The strength of a magnifier is sometimes referred to as its 'power' and is usually expressed as a multiple with the x (*times) sign. This is a 5x magnifier. It makes items viewed through it appear up to 5 times larger.

The best way to use a magnifying glass is to hold it as close to the eye as possible and bring the subject closer to the lens until it is in focus. For best results, try to use the magnifier in good quality light. If possible natural daylight is best or a good lamp with a daylight bulb. You can use this magnifying glass for, amongst many other things, detailed examination of maps, circuit boards, hallmarks, stamps, and so on. It would also be ideal for coin collectors, hobbyists, etc.

Customer comments:

good magnifying glass
As I wear glasses I can't always read small print. This magnifying glass is great I can see small print with this

Just right
After struggling with an ancient, scratched magnifying glass for years, I thought I’d getmyself to a new one. This magnifier ticks all the boxes. Works with or without my reading glasses. Well made, well finished and very useful. Highly recommended

Proper magnifying glass
What a pleasure to buy this slightly 'old-fashioned' magnifying glass, its solidly built, excellent magnification. Just does what it says on the tin. Brilliant
