Install LED light in generic loupe

I bought a cheap double lense-loupe on eBay for less than 10 EUR to install an LED with a push-button. To power the LED, I designed and printed this holder for a single CR2032 button cell / battery.

I mounted it with hot glue, and it's practically invisible when using the loupe. I mounted a simple push-button on the outside.

Materials and methods

- Any 3D printing material
- Loupe (search for 'watchmaker loupe' or 'stand loupe')
- Hot glue
- pushbutton
- wiring
