Posted By: <b>Todd (nolemmings)</b><p>Hello. I'm trying to find a nice, preferably cheap black light and 40 to 100x magnifier to help detect trimming and alterations on vintage cards. Any national chains or decent deals out there that you folks can share? any help appreciated. Todd

Posted By: <b>BcD</b><p>Craik bought the light from me. I will sell you one for $12.00 and I can find you the loup you need which is much lower power but corrected for curvature which is what you really need!!! write me for details...<BR>Cardknowledge@earthlink.net
