NEW PRODUCT – OptiVisor – head-mounted magnifier – LX
NEW PRODUCT – OptiVisor – head-mounted magnifier – LX. Electronic parts are getting smaller and smaller, requiring good vision. To avoid eye-strain we like to don one of these OptiVisors. They’re a little dorky but they work very nicely, especially for glasses-wearers. Will improve your soldering technique overnight!
Lightweight lenses and tough materials are designed to last a lifetime.
Optical prismatic 5x magnification lenses from precision ground and highly polished molds.
Adjustable side pivots allow the visor to tilt at your fingertips.
Dial adjustment headband conforms to comfortably fit all head sizes.
Genuine leather padded comfort band with orthopedic felt for extra comfort.

I’ve been using an OptiVisor for years and it’s the most essential single tool at my bench. My eyes like it so much I can feel them crave it whenever I sit down to solder. It’s comfortable and so easy to flip up for normal vision, I forget it’s on (embarrassing around the house). With the OptiVisor, a cheap hand loupe and bright lighting, I can inspect the joints on 25-mil quad flat packs, almost as well as using a microscope. It’s great for all electronic work and essential for surface mount.
