Need a Magnifier

Postby Darrel on Mon Mar 27, 2006 11:05 am

I am looking for the highest quality illuminated magnifing glass i can get for inspection of possible gold bearing quarts and panned down samples of crushed quarts that may contain gold.I am considering the Bausch & Lomb Lenscope 10x Magnifier and the Bausch & Lomb Illuminated Coddington Pocket Magnifier 10x. Since i may be working around wet conditions this will be a consideration (waterproof). Can you give me any adice about these mag glasses and their advantages or disadvantages for my situation? Or possibly recommend something else that is illuminated for my purpose?

No one makes a waterproof, illuminated magnifier that I have seen. The Coddington, is our best illuminated magnifer.
