Magnifying reading glasses at Harbor Freight
Posted by MikeV on Monday, September 20, 2004 7:26 AM
I bought some of these 1.5x reading glasses from Harbor Freight on Saturday to try out instead of the goggle-type magnifiers that I usually use, and I must say I am impressed with the quality of the optics of these glasses.
You would think that for $2.99 they would be horrible optically, but they are as good as any non-prescription reading glasses I have tried.
Check them out if you are looking for a pair.
They also have them in 2.0x and 2.5x on the website, but they only had this particular style in 1.5x at the store here. They also had some folding ones that I bought for $4.99 that look about the same except they are 2.5x.
I bought those for when you need to see those little tiny parts better. Wink [;)]

As time goes by, those little tiny hard to see parts keep getting bigger & bigger & bigger. Sigh Sad [:(].

you'd be surprised at how many pairs of dimestore reading glasses I've got rat holed just for doing small piece/part assembly. They work great for me. Good tip Mike. semper fi, mike
