The advantage of a bench magnifier (benchtop magnifier) is that it is hands free. Before selecting a bench magnifier
consider the following:
What power bench
magnifier do I need?
The higher the power of the magnifying lens the smaller the field
of view and the shorter the work distance,
Choose a bench magnifying glass or bench magnifying lamp that will have
the proper magnification at a comfortable work distance. A very high power may not be your best choice.
