I’ve tried all kinds of lights over the years— I wear trifocals, but have to take them off to work. I discovered it’s not necessarily a close-up lens that’s the issue in close in detail work, but the lighting. I’ve tried Ott lights, old fashioned goose neck lights, desk lights, and magnifiers with lights, but they all keep getting in my way when I work. I happened upon a twin-pack headset light at Costco a couple of years back made by “Coast” (don’t have a clue about who makes them) for $15 for two, and have never used other lighting besides them except for an old bendable desk/craft light that’s above my workbench ( it has a 150 watt equivalent LED bulb). I wear the headset lights while I work— it puts light wherever I point my eyes— perfect for close in work for old guys! The only drawback is it uses 3 AAA batteries, and they tend to lose power over long periods of build time. My solution for that is to buy a 64 pack of AAA batteries at Costco for $19. Remember, when you buy lights and bulbs— you should ignore the wattage and look at the Kelvin scale on the back of the box— the higher the Kelvins, the brighter the light. Stay away from anything less than 2000k— 2500-5000k is best for close in work. But the headsets have made a tremendous differenc in seeing details for me. I just put some rivets into USAAC oxygen regulator I'm building in 1/16 scale for a Vignette--- they are smaller than a flea egg!!--and had no trouble seeing what I was doing.
