I’ve been wanting to get a pair of clip on binocular loupes to use
when carving wax and checking polished finishes. I had a really good
show last weekend and decided it’s time to treat myself to some
vision enhancement. But I can’t afford the $1000 and up for Zeiss and
other name brand surgical loupes.
I was browsing ebay and found many binocular loupes on there for
under $250, almost all from China.
That prompted me to check other places online, and I found quite a
few sites selling no-name binocular loupes for really good prices.
Here’s one link to a US-based non-ebay sales site, just as an
example of what I found.
I haven’t purchased anything yet because I’m a tad leery…it just
sounds too good to be true.
Has anyone ever bought any of the no brand binocular loupes, and if
so, are they any good for jewelry work?
