  1. I have two loupes one from goulet pens that has a wider viewing field and then I also have a Belomo that has more magnification. I often end up just rubberbanding the loupe to my cellphone and put my cellphone on a little tripod and then put my fountain pen / nib on a stand as well so I can free my hands. I know loupes are handy especially when on the move or for a quick look. I often look at my nibs at my desk and often when I have plenty of time. That got me thinking instead of using loupes why not use a microscope, more specifically a USB Microscope. I've done some research and there s
  2. I was thinking about buying a stereo microscope ( my budget is around 250$ to 300$ max) , to do various nib works such as grinding polishing etc. I have a very good belomo 12x loupe but the magnification just isn't enough for me. I want to be able to see very fine details on the tipping of the nib which I can't see with the loupe, especially when working on finer nibs. Now I do have a few options on what to buy, but really need someones opinion. The first choice would be the Amscope se400-z ( https://amzn.to/2SbzszH ). Seems like a good deal and has good reviews. The problem is that it does n

    Quality Eye Loupe

    Can you recommend me a quality eye loupe?. I want something that is in same vein as a Belomo 12x handheld loupe. Thanks

    Loupe Recommendation Please

    My birthday's coming up soon and friends have been asking what I would like. I could do with a good loupe. I currently have two, both cheap Chinese models; one is 10x, the other claims to be 20x. The former hardly magnifies and the second has a very small, difficult to find nib viewing area, so the nib is always going out of focus. I use loupes for readjusting nibs: tine alignment, smoothing and even the occasional regrind. Please recommend one with good magnification with a reasonable viewing field. Thanks.

    Belomo Loupe: 10X, 12X Or 15X

    I'd like to buy a good general purpose loupe for examining pens and doing a bit of nib smoothing and adjustment. Reading through prior posts it appears that one can either: 1) buy something for $5-10 on eBay, which is considered either junk or wonderful depending on the commenter or 2) opt for Belomo, which all who have agree is very well made and has little distortion--I have already decided that I would prefer to buy better quality than buy twice I have ild/mod myopia, astygmatism and now (joy!) presbyopia so responses from the over 40-50 age group are especially valued. If you have us
  6. Maybe it's my eyes getting a bit more short sighted, I'm starting to struggle with my 10x loupe. I'd like to have a go at nib reshaping in the future, so reckon this is probably the time to step things up a few gears in terms of magnification anyway. Does anyone have any recommendations, regards to generic magnification, or perhaps a specific model? If anyone uses those LED loupes, what's your opinion?
