    Magnification

      I've bought myself some big lenses and have drawn up the following sketch.

       

      The plan is to make this from some scrap materials I already have so the base is a piece of wood I found in a skip, the arms are from a garden parasol and the supports are pieces of aluminium I cast a few years back in my flower pot furnace. The head is the most complex part so I'm going to 3D print that, an earlier version of the head design was designed in OpenSCAD so I need to tweek that to fit with this version.

      p.s. Yes, I know you can buy lamps but I wanted to make one.
