Hello

Hoping someone can help me!

My farther has recently retired and now has time to begin making models once again, which he adores.

He turns 60 next month and I am looking to buy him something wonderful to help him with his modelling.

My mother has suggested he needs a magnifying glass...

Can anyone recommend a good adjustable desk magnifying glass, which also looks great?

I want to get him the best!

Thank you in advance for your help
