Optivisor or Long Reach Light + Magnfier

Recommended Posts

Which is best for all those fiddly jobs that get harder as we get older?


I'm finding even HO a bit of a strain on my poor old eyes these days, and now I am the proud owner of an actual workbench I want to use it fully.




Hence, what lighting and how best to see more.


I didn't know where to put this, so stuck it in musings and miscellany as I expect a Mod will know best where to put it.  Thanks, Mod.

I find that an illuminated magnifier works well for me.




I bought a couple of these from Maplin when they were on offer.  Mine have circular fluorescent tubes around the magnifying glasses but I believe that newer models use LEDs.  They give shadow-free lighting, which is very effective.
