This is a review of the Harbor Freight Fluorescent Magnifying Lamp. Purchased today, it was on sale (in store) for $29.99.
The construction is all metal, I assumed that there would be some plastic involved, but was pleasantly surprised when the box was opened. The only plastic are the magnifier cover and the knob.
The fluorescent tube in circular with 22w of light and no buzzing or flickering.
The 5″ magnifier is clear, no obvious imperfections. The arm articulates with little effort, moves easily and stays where it’s put.
Bottom line, this is easily worth money. I cannot image spending at least double anywhere else. A great value.
