    For the visualy challenged modders

    Hi People

    I have been struggling with my eyes for some time. Nothing serious, just age related degeneration. I think a lot of people have the same issues. It seems the arms are suddenly not long enough to be able to focus on the book or newspapers. Get your eyes tested was the wifeís mantra, when I couldnít focus on the small print. (Headlines, front page of the newspaper)

    Anyway, I did, and I have had glasses for a couple of years now. I donít mind them, as I believe they convey an air of intelligence . I am always looking at women with glasses. Itís a lot easier now I have a pair. Donít need to stare as long when trying to read the ďTĒ shirts with the small print spread between the nipples.

    Ok, glasses are fine for day to day operations. They are not good when trying to solder wires to the little circuit boards that are associated with e cigs. I have tried all the cheap options for the vision challenged. Magnifying widgets, clamps around the head with lenses,Jewelers loupes, etc. All have their uses, but not very satisfactory for small intricate soldering work. The focal length is just too short and I have come close to burning my nose with the soldering iron a couple of times.

    China and ebay to the rescue.

    These things are good and the focal length is long enough that you donít have to crouch over the work. You can sit up straight. They come in various working distances and magnification. Mine have a focal length of 350mm and a magnification of 3.5. Good for me.

    Just do a search for dentist loupe and there is plenty of choice on ebay. Well worth the money if you like messing with small stuff.

    With a 510 vibrator attachment!

    On that note, even though my eyesight is pretty good, was thinking of grabbing something like this to assist in coil making

    Pleasure oneself with vibrator attachment (for the females....) then you can just unscrew it and put on your other weapon of choice and vape away!

    Could be a good way to get my missus onto ecig's hehehe

    For me well worth the outlay. Only issue is buying this sort of gear sight unseen. No touchy feely try out thing?? Its hard to decide the magnification and focal length you need. Wife said I looked stupid measuring the distance from my eyes to the work area. Anyway worked for me.
