Default headband magnifier for SMD work

I plan to build a amp32 kit which has some tiny parts.

what is a good headband type of magnifier with perhaps built in light?

thanks,

gychang

Donegan Optical OptiVISOR

Donegan Optical VisorLIGHT

Instead of the VisorLIGHT, you might want to check with your local Home Depot. In the lighting department here they have a nice little desktop lamp that works very well for me.

It has a small, black weighted base and a "wireframe" arm with three pivot points and a small black head with a halogen bulb in it. It looks good and gives plenty of light. Think it's only something like $30.

I've been using the OptiVisor for several years... just can't do without!
Takes a while to get used to though.....
I also sometimes use a x3 magnifier lamp....
( I also have a lab microscope at work, but have to share it with a couple of other guys ...)

I use this:

2.5X with 18" working distance!

Probably out of range for most peoples' budgets! They'd be out of my range, but school included them in tuition.
