This 1 pound, 9.2-ounce sturdy metal base is the foundation to this ultra-versatile flexible magnifying glass. This base allows for a hands-free operation by allowing for the configuration of the magnifying glass in the desired orientation. The top of the weighted base is threaded with 3/8” x 24 pitch – The flex-shaft is universal and threads into both the sturdy base and magnifier. The bottom of the metal base is lined with a soft scratch-resistant material that also stabilizes the base from slipping on smooth surfaces. The maximum extension from tip of magnifying glass to center of the threaded hole is 11.5 inches. This base is 7/8” thick and measures 2.75” wide by 4.25” long.
The 1.5x magnification enlarges your project’s image to just the perfect size. This item is perfect for use in: soldering and circuit boards, model trains, planes and automobiles, painting, refurbishing intricate repairs, coin collections, stamps collections, and just about any other hobby or craft. The diameter of the magnifying glass is 4 inches providing you with a wider than average viewing field when compared to other hands-free devices.
The base of the magnifying glass, just above where it connects to the flex-shaft, has a screw-adjustment that allows for the entire magnifying glass to swivel to the desired orientation and lock into place. This comes in handy especially when there are multiple angles of the project or item that needs to be inspected for extended lengths of time. The combination of the flex shaft and the swivel lock make for innumerous combinations of orientation.
Made with sturdy metal this flex shaft measures 12 inches in total length and stays in place with no ‘slipping’ due to the weight load of the magnifying glass. The shaft extends over the long side of the sturdy base, it is not recommended that the flex shaft be extended over the short side of the weighted base. The flex shaft has two threaded studs that each connect to the sturdy base and the magnifying glass.
