… and there was light.

14/4/2015

Since my bench was finished a month or so ago, it has been a struggle to see what I am doing as it is located in a part of the shop which is devoid of light. Recently I bought this basic study lamp and attached it to a short board to improve it’s maneuverability. Here are a few pictures to show how it lightens up my life.

Clamping it to the bench enables me to have it hanging over the bench’s edge.

It can also be clamped in the twin screw vise, legvise or my sliding deadman-cum-legvise. This helps to set it up as a raking light (second and third photo).

It is incredible how much more accurate every aspect of my work has become since using a simple bench light. It is highly recommended.
