Carson Optical Magnifiers & Microscopes

I go large. I live large. I order my fast-food value meals large. And I like things to look large - much larger than they actually are. That's why Carson Optical and me, we tight.

I want that solder station, but its a little rich for the amount of soldering I do. Anyone know of any cheaper solutions?

frys has one i picked up last time for less than $10. of course it doesn't have led lights, but it does have a couple of clamps and a magnifying glass.

Search for 'helping hands' and you should find a few in various configurations.

I got a helping hand solder thingy at harbor freight around 10 bucks. Works for me.

I also got one from Frys. I have a small dental lab and it comes in handy when bending small wires. I use it for other things too. I love my $$9.99 gadget.

Is there any difference between the orange and green microscopes beside the color?

Why do the magnifiers get more expensive with bigger 'X'?
