12X Comparator and Reticle Sets


  • Clear Base Admits Light
  • High Power, Wide Field
  • Reticle Included

Excellent for determining paper quality and ink absorption. Ideal for proofreaders. The transparent acrylic base rests directly on work for clear, close-up examinations. Base admits light to subject under view. 12X is Kellner-type, color-corrected, three-element lens system. Twist focus with lock-ring for permanent setting. Contact reticle adapter ring on base accepts all 27mm diameter reticles. Since power increases as field of view decreases, the full reticle pattern of some crowded reticles will not be visible using the 12X comparator. Nylon case (#36-286) is sold separately.
