Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for model making. Holds all thr pieces steady while you paint or glue. Easy to use, and weighted stand makes it very stable. Magnifying glass attached also helps my failing eye sight see the work more clearly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Helpful Tool I make polymer clay jewellery and this tool has been really great for sticking tiny prices together whilst the glue sets. Great value too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap and nasty but it works...sort of I bought this to help with modelling 'N gauge' railway bits and pieces. The lense is a bit loose in the chrome rim so a bit annoying to use as it wobbles all the time. The base, which is described as 'heavy' (presumably to prevent the thing from falling over) actually doesn't work. It still falls over anyway as it is so top heavy! Still, it was cheap to buy and I can see why! In hindsight I would spend a bit more and get something that works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money Does everything it says on the tin. One small grouse is that the base could be heavier as prone to topple in certain situations - easily avoided if weight added to base or fixed to work surface (or to a piece of wood).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful for boy with 1 paralyzed arm I did not get to try this product but left it for a 13 year old boy to be able to build models with in Romania where no such products are available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money Great for those detailing moments and easily adjustable. I wear glasses and this is such a help when painting small 1/35 scale model figures and far cheaper than going the route of a illuminated angle lamp/magnifier. Very happy to write this review and I rarely write reviews but am more than happy to recommend this product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really useful 3rd hand Looking at the other reviews I was prepared to mount it on a baseboard for stability which I have done , this has made it rock solid, I also nipped up all the joints so they could be positioned easily without re tightening,The magnifier is very clear and makes what would be a very fidlley job a cinch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helping hands and magnifier I have not used it yet but it will be of great help holding the smaller items of the models when they are being constructed. The only criticism is the size of the base,could do with being be a little bigger for stability reasons. All in all a good little tool and well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Reasonably priced tool, unlike some others at hobby craft ( I’d rather wait the postage time from eBay with the savings made ). Anyway, this is perfect and the arms stay nice and tight as you work, I use mine for soldering and it’s great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Build issues The price is good and when you free off the screws it works well but I experienced 2 screws which were over tightened which nearly sheared when loosening them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really useful piece The clips are great for painting, the only trouble is the base isn’t quite big enough to trust with the magnifying glass as well as whatever you clip to it.
