Re: twist n!punch

Whilst I am generally aware of such optical centre punches I have not seen the specific article you refer to, but from your description it sounds as if the lens in the loupe is incorrect. If it is a plano convex lens, (i.e flat one side and convex on the other) it could well be that reversing the lens in the holder will solve your problem, otherwise a different lens may be called for. As I say I have not seen the article so this may be complete tosh!
