    Thanks Tony! This is one of those why didn't I think of it sort of things. I've certainly have suffered from the embarrassment of running a bead completely off the groove so to speak. Sometimes this is in the middle of the day outside so maybe this will not help my old eyes much, but I need to try something.

    For a similar need I bought one of these magnifier visors with an attached light and I have to say "Why didn't I do this long ago?".

    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    Thanks Wizard. Yes, I think we’ve all had that happen at one time or another. BTW, those headlamps are good, when you’re spray painting, too.

    Thanks Crusty. I use one of those when I’m soldering electronics. Very helpful.
