Same experience! Your car needs new pads...
I did have a funny experience at Midas (muffler shop). I knew what was needed. The guy came out and asked me to follow him to the car. He had a white coat on like a doctor. He tried to sell me a bunch of extra stuff, as if to say, "yes, I can recork it, but all the springs need to be replaced, too. And see this? This key is bent, it needs to be repaced as well. And..."

Just bought my first loop. I get funny looks wearing it when driving. ;)

Like this you mean?...

As we're on the subject, I recently took delivery of a pair of these. Excellent investment.

I'm a little confused:
1/ The advertisement makes no mention as to whether these are battery powered, rechargeable, throw away, or brain powered?
2/ The advertisement claims both 180% and 160% magnification.
Could you please provide the answers?
I thank you.

1/ battery. If I push the switch, light comes out. That's the extent of my knowledge. A little searching reveals that rechargeable versions are available for a bit extra. Would have bought those had I known.
2/ probably allowances need to be made for translation from Chinese. I put them on: things look bigger. By how much? Dunno, but enough.

Torch in mouth and two pairs of glasses is my solution.
This is my solution too, especially when lining up a Legere reed on a silver mouthpiece, no good for a gig though too difficult to fit the mouthpiece in as well as the torch.

I'll admit yours look classier than mine which not only magnify and illuminate the work but can also be used to frighten small children as well.

Every time I see your replies Colin I get reminded of my friend.

I remember our 'mountain leader' training where we were all very well kitted and dressed pretty smart besides one guy wearing used torn jackets put together with used and torn ductape.

... In fairness, he has a lot more fun then I do, kayaking around the world and living in his van when not, of course, he took his quarantine period very seriously and spent it in a hammock at the back of his sisters garden.
