This magnifying glass kit as a heavy brass bezel housing a high quality X 2 precision ground glass lens. A good fastening assembly for mounting the handle to the bezel ring assures that it will always stay together and provide years of service. Select a piece of figured wood for the handle, turn it to your design, assemble the parts and you have a magnifying glass superior to most others available.
This project is best turned between centres with a dead centre driving or a wooden drive in a chuck and a revolving tail centre.
Tip: The finished magnifying glass provides an ideal gift on its own or you could make up a desk top writing gift by combining the magnifying glass with any of our pens, click pencils and letter opener kits

Hi David, The centre finder arrived today, Thanks for not only sending a swift replacement but an excellent response to what was a small difficulty out of your control the post being what it is. I find that it's how a problem is dealt with after it has accrued that matters, and in this case it was dealt with very well. Should the original item find its way here I will return it to you, and yes it will be a pleasure to deal with you again. Thanks once again Malc - Malc
