A "heads up" about the best machine light and close working light I have seen!

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20169658/

I bought 5 of these a few months ago to use as machine lights as they put a bright spotlight right where you are cutting, the long flexible neck bends to wherever you need, the tiny head of the lamp doesn't obscure your vision, and they are only $10. I like them so much I have just bought 4 more for other places. The light has a bright LED and a lens to focus the beam into a tight circle about 6" in dia. For some of my large cast iron machines I modified the lamp base into a magnetized base with a cheap but strong magnet from Harbor Freight.

I also use this light on my workbench when I am working on small parts as the overhead fluorescent light is not quite strong enough. The intense beam does the job.
