Hi everyone,

I've tried several magnifiers and magnifying lamps recently, and I've got a x2 magnifier which has a small x6 section on it. The x6 part is a big improvement, but it's far too small to work comfortably with. I've tried one magnifier claiming to be x10, but it didn't seem much better than the x2 magnifier I'm using. Has anyone tried any (ideally on the stronger side) they've found helpful for lacemaking? Any suggestions would be a great help. :)

Yes, I work with magnifying glasses that are very practical to work with, you have five magnifying glasses.

fancee !  I wonder if it would interfere with eyeglasses.  I use a circle fluorescent clamp-on-table lamp and magnifier.

I have those ! They are amazing with the interchangeable lens and headlight !

as far as glasses interfering the strap helps with wearing both...

best investment ever !!!

Ifyou wear glasses, you might want to check.out the clip on magnifiers made originally for fishing fly tiers. The are not the ones on the plastic extension that will stick the magnifiers away from your glasses. The fit glose to your lenses and are made in powers startinng from 1 through 5. If you do not wear glasses, magnifying glasses are available at many drug store, needlework shops, etc.
The clip on your glasses magnifiers are available online.

Thanks so much for the pointers, everyone! The interchangeable lenses sound really useful - I'll give the headset a go soon. :)
