    Thanks Bryan!

    I will drill a hole in it for a shoelace.

    Nice! Now I know I can replace it. I never looked around that hard for a similar model.

    More expensive than I thought it would be. And I guess it's 9x, surprise! I just like the size. I like the little case shown that comes with it. I don't have that.

    I am using Schneider and Mamiya (aka Cabin) Loupes, probably not in production but there are plentifully at the auction site. Beyond 8x, try a jewelers loupe, some are available with apochromatic glass.

    I use a big Edmund 7X unit for lightbox use in the lab. It has a large cutout which accommodates a retouching pen. They have quite a selection of magnifiers. The emergency reserve magnifier in my backpack is a tiny 10X Emo. It comes with an adapter to turn it into a tiny telescope.

    I use a linen tester. Square corners so I can poke it all the way up into the corner of the frame. However with making 8x10 contact prints, shooting in bright daylight conditions I find myself not needing a loupe all that often anyhow. But then again, my eyes are only 31 years old

    Besides a special production Rodenstock 4x and the production 4x and a Schneider 4x I also have a very unusual Emo Octoscop with 4 swiveling lenses. Individually they are 2x, 4x, 10x and 18x. But they rotate and be used in combinations to make up to 28x. Whole thing is about 2” long! A bit over 1/2” wide and ˝” thick. Available magnifications when swiveled are 6x , 14x, 20x and 28x. Has a neckcord and slip in leather case.

    That was the Eoskop. I believe it could also be used as a microscope, neat unit, wish I could find where mine went!

    Since my early days as a mineralogy student, 40+ years ago, I always carry a geologist‘s/jeweler’s loupe with me, so that is what I use. I am so used to it that a regular ground glass loupe doesn’t feel right to me in the field. I use the latter on the light table.
