OptiVISOR Headband Magnifier

About This Item

See better to do better work! The OptiVISOR flip-up magnifier frees both hands for inlaying, wiring, fret dressing and other close work.

The OptiVISOR comes with 2X magnification lens with a 10" (25.4cm) focal length — good for medium-close work like pearl cutting, inlaying, engraving and fret-dressing. The lenses are removable so you can switch to the 1.5X lens (#1688, sold separately), which gives you the option of a broader view.

Snap the Quasar LS™ high-intensity lights on the front of your OptiVISOR and really light up your work! High efficiency LEDs (light emitting diodes) surround the lenses to virtually eliminate shadows in hard-to-light areas. The lightweight battery box (with on/off switch) attaches easily to the OptiVISOR frame. Two AA batteries are included.

"However did I manage without it?"
—Stefan Sobell, renowned luthier Northumberland, England

If you've watched our videos, you know ace repairman Dan Erlewine is seldom without his OptiVISOR!

Lenses are optically-ground polished glass. Headband is adjustable and comfortably padded.

Works great, just what a geezer needs for soldering and fine tuned work that need's to be perfect.

Can't DO without.!!

I decided after retirement I wanted to "tinker" with my guitars. Do my own set ups and repairs etc.. Didn't take long to figure out I needed help seeing certain things. Contacted customer service at StewMac and was directed to this very helpful tool. This visor is awesome. The led attachment is a must for me. Great help. Thanks StewMac. I couldn't do it without these.

A must-have for amp repairs

Gone are the days of blisters and collateral component damage from not being able to clearly see where my soldering iron is! I really have no idea how I used to work on amps before I had these.

I also purchased the LED lights which are great - no more shadows.

Can I give it ten stars?!?

Middle age is tough. This makes (some of) it easier. WAY easier. Maybe if I'd have gotten this a couple decades ago, my solder joints and breadboards would've been right the first time?
Okay--probably not. But seeing your work is very...eye opening. And this has excellent optics.

Had one that I bought from Stew Mac about 20 years ago and finally decided to get a new one with the light attachment. It is great. I use it everyday.

Perfect!

I'm rebuilding a Rickenbacker bass with a cracked neck and really bad electronics. I usually use a large magnifying lamp with florescent light but it always gets in the way. This visor is not only comfortable, and the lenses can be lifted easily, but the LED add on is amazing. Very bright and really helps these old eyeballs of mine. Love my new visor. Thanks to Dan for the great demonstration and great videos in general. I have really learned a lot from him.

I use the lighted option for engraving. I find that it helps eliminate some of the undesirable shadows on the work piece
