Need better eyesight? Best 12X loupe


Very Active Member
My Roland tech had one of these the last time he was in and I was so
impressed I ordered one on the spot. Get the lighting option- the angle
is perfect- the first time (in 10years of printing) that I have been able
to actually see the yellow head test prints. Also great for checking plotter
blade tips and a hundred other things as we get older and eyesight fades.

I know it's not printing related, but I had some lights put on my embroidery heads so I can catch errant stitching before it gets so bad that you can't cut it out without running the garment.

If your machine(s) can do the lighting option, always get it if you can. I believe it's worth it.
