PB’s kit and garage gad­gets rated.

I BET YOU didn’t know these things were called eye loupes, eh? They’re usu­ally the pre­serve of those telling you the jew­ellery that granny left you in her will is worth­less crap from Ar­gos. But ev­ery good me­chanic knows the value a set of these brings to your ar­se­nal of tools you won’t need ev­ery day, but will prove use­ful, even if it’s just for get­ting splin­ters out.

That is what you’ll use them for the most, es­pe­cially if you’ve ever had to cut fi­bre­glass body­work, but they also come in handy for read­ing shims, re­mov­ing pins from elec­tri­cal con­nec­tors, ex­am­in­ing bulb fil­a­ments, check­ing carb jets are clear, and any other ex­cuse you need to look at what’s un­der your fin­ger­nails in 10x mag­ni­fi­ca­tion (use­ful at toi­let time, then... – CN). Make sure you get a set with 5x mag­ni­fi­ca­tion in­cluded be­cause that’s the most use­ful.
