Can you demagnify your head when your are done? Or does it stay giant?

Confirmed, this thing is great. Three levels of magnification, too.

the link doesn’t work - I get a ‘Server not found’ error. I am on Mac using FF 49.0.2

Confirming your confirm. Super great when soldering small (surface mount) stuff, too.

Confirm your confirm. Edit: FOUR levels of magnification if you count that little rotatable magnifying glass (plastic, lets face it) on the right eye piece. I can’t solder without this thing.

This is one of those things I definitely should have thought about buying. It just never occurred to me. I keep meaning to use the magnifier on my third-hand but it’s a chore. Great suggestion.

Dang - that is a good deal. Always wanted one… but right now I shouldn’t.

These magnifiers are great, but I did not find the light sufficient. I’ve had much better luck using them since I added a bright light:

I’ll second that. I bought one of these several years ago, and it was the best $6 I ever spent on ebay.
