  • Caution re; spare tube

    Great piece of reasonably priced kit. Speedy delivery. Now the caution, make sure you order the correct 22w tube. I ordered the wrong one(£8.99) because it came up on the righthand side of the webpage as "customers also viewed 22w circular fluorescent tube". Check the part code number which should be N11CH(£6.99)

  • brilliant!

    Very good for the price, could have done with a little more magnifying for micro chips, but passable, my eyesight probably isn't what it used to be! I was pleased to see the exact model in a well known craft store for £50 more!

  • I have used this everyday for the last 3 years and has always been brill, However over the last few weeks till today there was a large heat generating from the lamp causing the lens to burn and bubble (melted plastic) but now it started to flicker and now just died on me.
    So that's 3 years of everyday use. would love to give 5 stars, However due to the heat and bubble, I needs a new lens but these are not replaceable, So i am going to give this a 4 star (wanted 4 1/2 stars but site wont allow half's),
    Will buy a replacement bulb tomorrow and enjoy another 3 years. :)

  • Perfect lighting solution!

    I recently took up a new hobby- collecting and painting 28mm miniatures and this required a good light source- unfortunately my desk lamp didn't cut it - too dull, after trying a 150W bulb in my ceiling light I had the opposite problem- glare!
    I had previously heard of Daylight Magnifiers but the ones I'd came across were very expensive so I was both extremely pleased and a little surprised to find one at such a great price.
    I have been using my new light for almost a month now and I can report it is excellent. My standard of painting has improved as it provides excellent non glare bright light where I need it and it 's magnifier comes in very handy for detailed work. The G clamp is sturdy, wide and fully adjustable. The lamp can be moved into almost any position- which is very handy when using the magnifying feature. I can't fault this product- it was the perfect answer to my lighting issue with the added bonus of an adjustable magnifier. Couldn't recommend this more and I very much doubt you'll be able to find one at a better price than this- the closest I have seen is double the price! Another thing I should add many of the other brands don't ship with a bulb- you'll have to buy one separately!
    Great light- Great Price- buy two!! :)

  • The lamp provided a great light to work by. Unfortunately it doesn't stay in position very well. And main has failed after only a couple of months use. I purchased a replacement tube for it, but that doesn't solve the problem. The fuse is fine. Currently awaiting the magic of a Maplineer to swap it out. Fingers crossed the next one works for longer.

  • A great bit of kit & good value for money. The overall size is a bit daunting at first & needed a review of where I was going to mount it. That said the lens is huge & gives a crystal clear view.

  • I've had one of these for a few years now and cannot do without it for most tasks at my bench. I bought this one for a friend after he used and hugely admired my one. I will probably buy myself another one (or two!) and dot them around my workshop. Bright, even light, and a good magnifier - highly recomended.

  • Manoeuvrability is not perfect but that is the only negative thing I can say about this lamp. I bought 2 and am so impressed I'm going to buy another 2. The optics are very good as is the robustness. Plus the clamp fixing to the table is strong and not too wobbly at all. If you need something like this, don't hesitate - well worth the money.
