Welcome to a new InTheMail, the series that will touch both your passion for electronics and your bank account at the same time. For this video we have a wide selection of items and we’re gonna start with this jewelers magnifying glass, I’ve had one of these for years and it’s been great for reading small numbers of chips but recently I found myself needing more than one between the home lab and the office so I got a second one. Here is an example of how I would use this to read some very small numbers. Of Course I have the microscope but I usually keep that unplugged and covered to protect from dust so for reading a chip number it’s just easier to use one of these. Same as always if you are interested in getting one, you will find links in the description below the video.
