Hi,
Does anyone know who makes a Fiber Optic Illuminator (Halegon) with a Pinpoint attachment for a reasonable price (prefer new)?
I've read the previous posts regarding Dolan Jenner, Fostec, etc.
and I've only found one by Kruss (Kassoy). Curious if there are others for comparison.
Appreciate it.

i use the Kruss fibre light with pinpoint and while it is pricey its also a very good tool. Should you go that route make sure to buy a few extra main bulbs as they go without warning.
The only other option i can think of is to buy something previously owned.

Hi D-Flaw, thanks for info. I actually just today purchased a Fiber Optic Illuminator from Jeff Wildman at Gemological Products. It is a used Lumina, but I researched this site and others and I was not finding many Illuminators with Pinpoint.

Jeff is extremely helpful. I highly recommend as do others on this site.

agreed. Jeff has great options for scopes and gemology equipment in general. OP is going to love that tool
