Where to buy loupe * 1
    #379804 - 03/08/10 06:00 AM (6 years, 8 months ago)

Wasn't sure where to post this , feel free to move if in wrong forum.

Anyway to my question, I'm looking for a hand magnifier/jewellers loupe that's 50x magnifcation or higher, does anyone know where I could obtain one from that would ship to Australia??
:jah:

Does it have to be 50x?
There's plenty of cheap 30x on ebay since the AUD is getting so close to the USD.
There's a cheap one over at
dealextreme but the quality there is never great.

If you need 50x you probably want high quality as well though. Check out http://www.measuringmagnifier.com/ but your best bet would be going down to the local jewelers and asking them.

if you get that can you tell me how much the shipping is, i'd like to have one of those come harvest instead  of just going by the pistils.

Does anyone know the suggested magnification needed to check trichome color? I can't seem to find the magic number.

I'm lookin for something small and discrete.

Snurry Shipping is around 24$ to aus nd it's ISPs priority mail 7-10 days delliveries . I've read that you can view trichommes with 40x or better Maybe  even 30. But the higher you go the easier they are to view.

I use this one too.  It works good.  but it's kind of a pain in the ass to see wtf is going on.  it magnifies way more than I need it to.

If you're short on time Radio Shack sells a decent one for under $20, if I remember correctly.

It's a 60-100x pocket microscope with a aaa powered light. You gotta find it for yourself though, the lady in the store thought I was a :tardhi: when I asked for it.. Bitch that she was just looked at me and thought 'stoner  making things up'.

Worked well enough for me, especially under the time constraints I had. The only problem I had was holding it still enough to figure out what percentage of the trichomes were what color.. I ended up laying my plant down on its side to get a good look.

not at the one i went to.  I went to RS trying to avoid shelling out the money for the 420 scope.  They didn't have shit that I could use.  Thought about a pawn shop or jewlers type shop but said fuck it.

hahaha, and there's nothing better than having 420 written on the side of it.  just make sure you clean the bottom of it before you take it to school.  Mine gets all resinated on the bottom of it.  im sure youll notice it.

Our sponsor RVF Garden supply sells a 60-100x microscope for 18 bucks.  I use the one that hydrofarm sells, same magnification, same price, and I love it.

Remember that this is a microscope, not a loupe, so it's hard unless you have an amazingly steady hand to look at the trichs while your plants are still in the pots.  Best thing to do is take a very tiny (a single calyx or match head sized portion of sugar leaf) a single calyx or match head sized portion of sugar leaf sample and put it on a white piece of paper, then place the scope over the sample and look in.  Everything will be still and you can get a much better look at the trichs with no straining or blurriness.
