C Craft Posted January 25, 2015 Share Posted January 25, 2015 I was in the shop the other day and had to do some cutting on a piece I was making and some grinding and I was doing the work under my magnifier light like this one. http://www.amazon.com/Ledu-3-Diopter-Fluorescent-Magnifier-Lamp/dp/B0057HQ3VG/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1422147444&sr=8-8&keywords=3+Diopter+LED+Magnifying+LampNever one time thought about it but the grinding sparks were flying while I was working. After I finished I was cleaning up and that's when I noticed it. The magnifier lens had picked up a lot of the grinding debris. In the past I have screwed up my glasses before and therefore I try to keep an old pair or three handy for just that kind of use. Anyway back to the story at hand when I discovered what had happened I was kind of heart sick. This light was kind of expensive and I put off buying one so I could buy a good one. I took a brand new single edge razor blade and scraped the majority of the debris off of the magnifier lens. So here is my question is there anything else I can do to clean the lens???? I thought about a paste made up of toothpaste but not sure if that is a good idea or not. So is there anything else I can do??? Anything I can do in the future to keep this from happening again??? (short of not using the magnifier light for that purpose) C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
