Recommend A Loupe For Nib Shaping?

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?

I have this one from http://www.independentliving.com/ and a 10x Belomo.

I use the extra 4x on the LED one more often than the Belomo.

 

While I'd not be inclined to get a 20x Belomo, it would be a very close call for me between this one and a 15x Belomo. The lens is much larger on

this model than a Belomo which helps when you go to higher power loupes. I would take a 20x in this model Before I'd take a 20x Belomo.

Bruce, I can't find the LED loupe you pictured on the site you linked.

I absolutely love this one I got for $4 and free shipping. I got mine on Amazon, though. Love it so much I am considering a few more as gifts. They make an extra fine nib look like a BB,lol. There is also a tiny very bright LED bulb under each lens for when you might need more light.The case it slides into is metal. I have used that part as an extra work surface in nib adjusting. It comes in a really heavy duty plastic clam shell case.
