Comments about APCO Heavy-Duty Magnifier Lamp:
I don't udnerstand how anyone could use this lamp/magnifier on their drawing board. While solidly built, the springs do not allow the mangifier to stay in place - even my engineer husband couldn't make this work. I so wanted this for my detailed drawings but it was an epic fail
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Better than I expected
from St. Louis, MO
This lamp has two magnifying lenses -- one built into the frame, one attached to the bottom/light bulb. You can take the secondary magnifyer off to just get the basic, 3X magnification. The secondary magnifyer can be handheld, positioned in various ways, too. The light is VERY easy on the eyes and greatly reduces glare when I draw in graphite. I am very pleased!

Great value, great product
I use mine for getting very fine detail in pencil drawings. It has two lenses to give it its power. One can be easily removed if the magnification is too high.
The right Diopter for me
from Coxsackie, NY
Just the right tool for me. Too much power is not always the way to go, of course depending on your application.

This product was easy to install and is in active use 7 days a week. I find that the only improvement in it would be to make its lens wider. It makes my work so much easier.

Brighter than I expected
from Westford, MA
My wife makes jewelry and wanted a magnifying lamp that wouldn't give off as much heat as her neon magnifying lamp. I hesitated buying after reading that the led lamps would be cool but didn't give off enough light. I was pleased to find that this lamp does give off enough light. Blick also carries replacement/spare base clamps for the lamp; they do wear out and Blick is the only place I've been able to find that carries them. Yay Blick! The shipping was fast and I received the items very quickly.
