Cree - Magnetic-Mount LED Worklight
Magnetic base and a flexible gooseneck
Shine Light Precisely Where You Want It
Even in a shop with plenty of bright ceiling lights, there are always a few places where you can use a light targeted on a small area. In my shop, which has great lighting, those areas are the bandsaw and drill press. Shadows make it hard to see the bandsaw blade and cut line, and to align bits with layout marks on the drill press.
Thankfully, Lee Valley sells an LED worklight with a magnetic base and a flexible gooseneck. The rareearth magnet in the base (there’s one in the included mounting bracket, too) is very strong. The base simply doesn’t move after you’ve mounted it to a ferromagnetic surface like a bandsaw’s metal housing.
The LED light is bright, and can be adjusted for a wider or narrower beam. The long, flexible neck stays put no matter how you position it. Both these attributes make it very easy to put light exactly where you need it.
