A&O LORGNETTE-STYLE plastic stereoviewer 10" focal length works well for full size stereos. $5 with free US shipping.  Quantity discount 6 for $25 with free US shipping.

 

KEYSTONE STEREOVIEWER MODEL #50.   My personal favorite: the tongue is easily removed for viewing stereos printed in books, the slightly oversize hoods accomodate most glasses.  Excellent optics that easily beat antique and reproduction viewers housed in a rugged plastic body.  Very good used condition in original box.  Limited color choices: Burgandy, Blue, or Green. $65 plus $8 US shipping.
