"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!
The OptiVISOR ships with a lens that has 2x magnification and 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.
Lenses are optically-ground polished glass. Headband is adjustable and comfortably padded.
