Keeping a perpendicular sawcut while looking through a scope, is asking a lot. Maybe saw well outside the line and file to it, you can get a decent sized file into some of those central areas, filing to a line and seeing what weight of line you actually want to finish with, is easier than guessing with a sawcut, too much off, and thats it - no way back.

Hey Jack,

I had the same problem and these were the answer for me.

Got them on ebay from china.
$65.00 free shipping.
They are made for the dental assistant.
Working distance about 16 inches.

Thanks Dave!
I appreciate you taking the time to post the link!
My eyesight seems to be degenerating at a scandalous rate far in excess of what it should, (I'm only 57!) so every little bit helps. The working distance on the optivisor gets shorter every diopter I go up, so these should be a big help!

Regards,
Albert

I got some dental mags and found them heavy on the nose - I reverted to optivisor. I will try again.

I think I've stumbled on a useful tip. My Groblet saw fills up with swarf and after a while it won't grip the blade so then needs a strip down. I was using a paper shield but switched to Blu-Tac (actually Roddico which is much more posh!). But I put one at top as well as a bump stop. I still occasionally get too wild with the saw and this stops the jarring experience when you tap the saw on the work (and stops the saw marking softer materials) - so handy if you have poor technique.
