the last time you needed just a bit more light to get a better
view of what you were doing?
not unusual. Often, overhead lights aren't enough...and machine
lamps are typically "omni-directional"...being able to shine
light in one direction only.
about those times when you need light coming from TWO or more
directions? Here's a trick to remember.
with a mechanic's drop light on a retractable reel. Mount
it on the ceiling near the center of your shop...or at least
the center of the area where you do most of your work.
purchase an inexpensive photo tripod at a flea market or garage
sale and make yourself a clamping device that attaches to
the top of the tripod and holds your drop light's handle.
most tripods swivel in multiple directions, you should be
able to pull your light down when you need it...attach it
to the tripod...and go to work with all the illumination you
could ask for.
