    Hmmm.... They sell reading glasses at drug stores. I should check them out.

    These are all fun, inexpensive, easily checked ideas.

    Re: DIY Loupe

    I just use a $5 thread counter. It folds up small, yet folds out to set the focal length, and has a good level of magnification. If you lose or damage it, you can pick up another one in any number of stores for not much money, so you don't have to be delicate with it. It's hard for me to imagine wanting anything more from a GG loupe.

    Try the drug store cheaters, but I think they need to be a bit stronger. Mine were prescription and Stronger than regular.

    Eventually I went to "normal" prescription readers under the Jewelers magnifying head set called "Opti-Visor".

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    Mine are all projector lenses from secondhand stores. I like them better than commercial offerings.
