Vol.4, Iss.1: The Optic

The Optic
We have been buzzing at University Archives with orders for “The Optic” which was featured on Pawn Stars in December and on History Detectives on January 8th. “The Optic” is a lens created for the military, which we have found extremely useful for magnification of our documents. We still have a limited amount of these easy to carry lenses at a price you will not find anywhere else. They are being ordered by engineers, print shops, and lawyers. We are sure you can find many applications. Click on the title of the description to get more details.
You may also be interested in our YouTube video John Reznikoff has produced for Tools of the Trade.
We have also featured a few pieces that are Presidential Inauguration themed.
