MCM Electronics Fluorescent Magnifier Lamp in Nuts and Volts Magazine

Posted by Greg on Oct 31, 2014

In the November 2014 issue of Nuts and Volts Magazine Chris Savage put together an article highlighting the most useful tools on his workstation. We were very pleased to see that he included our Fluorescent Magnifier Lamp (21-935) in his list of tools that he feels are essential. - "The last tool on my bench that I want to mention is my magnifying lamp. When working on small parts - especially SMD components - this lamp comes in very handy. I picked it up from MCM Electronics for under $50 and it is very solid."
