Even in well-lit shops, task lights come in handy for bandsaws, drill presses, and workbench areas. Danray Products in Rockford, Ill., has been making adjustable snake-arm lamps and safety shields for the woodworking and metalworking industries for more than 40 years, and now the company is selling directly to the consumer. Danray offers products to fit just about any application, and the stiff snake arms work well. Lampshades, rated to take up to a 100-watt bulb, are made of high-impact polycarbonate. They’re double walled and well-vented to keep the outer shade from getting hot. The safety shields also are made of unbreakable polycarbonate, 3/16 in. thick, and come in a variety of sizes. I tried a light on a magnetic base ($63 as shown) on my bandsaw and a safety shield ($55) on a fixed base on one of my grinders, and I was impressed with the quality of both. To buy Danray products directly, go to www.danrayproducts.com or call 815-262-6667.
