That's a Cdn. site but it's likely available in the US as well(?).

That is cool. Now just need to think of a reason to buy one. If I actually wanted to get one, I'd ask if they could send to the US, before trying to buy.

Not needing to get quite that technical. I sharpen my tools and then put them to the wood. That is, IMHO, the ultimate test.

I would use it to read the instructions and warranties that come with tools anymore.

Dan, It is amazing to see things that close up. I used a "Aomekie Universal clip LED Zoom 60x-100x Pocket Microscope Magnifier" for cellphone...Cost $14.99 at Amazon for my pictures. With the camera you are showing, it looks like you must connect it to a usb port to use it.

Gary; yes...it's powered from the USB. It'd be great if you could plug it into your smartphone, eh?
The way I see it is it's only 12 trips to the coffee shop (not including the gas...then it's only two trips.)

They don't ship to USA, but Amazon has them.
