Michael's sells a pair of clip-on reading glasses for about $10 or so, +2.25 power.

I checked at my Michael's yesterday and could only find 1.5x. I'll keep looking. Sounds like a good solution.
Peace

OO OO OO!!

Walgreen's has a 3X magnifier for reading Rx bottles that sells for under $3! it clips onto the material and works for standing up carving!! whoo hoo! i found it yesterday. i'm so excited. It reminds me of ElectricMedic's little jewelry loupe, only it's actually bigger, hinges out of the way (thus it's movable) and has a clip on it.

it is not my light up lamp, attached to my table, which i really like. However, this one is portable and definitely works.

Wow! That does sound quite useful. Do you mean it clips onto the carving material? Are you saying you stand up to carve or do you mean the magnifier stands up?

Also, in poking around I found another possibility that clips onto the handle of craft tools.....maybe the Speedball pen holder?

Thoughts?

Looked at my local Walgreens today and couldn't find this item. I even asked about it and the pharmacist had no clue. Darn!

Webfoot (who is working on a new set of orange samples...)

Thanks Webfoot.

Is it going to be the same color orange? It would be kind of nice to see a different color. For one thing, it would help us distinguish between the old and new. It doesn't have to be neon green, but something different would be nice.
