    Comments about Magnetic or Clip On Base Work Light :

    Nice product concept, but a sloppy implementation more worthy of a certain other store than Woodcraft. If you are going to have articulating arms, does it make sense to build them with slippery plastic that doesn't hold and no friction washers? Why does only one of the three articulation points have a wingnut instead of all three? Why couldn't they have used recessed hex head screws that don't need an extra tool to hold them while adjustments are made on the other side? The scratch protection plastic on the magnetic base is already wanting to fall off. The clamp base attachment point is so wide, it's hard to attach. With work, I've gotten it to a usable state and I expect to get my money's worth out of it, but a nicer out-of-the-box experience would have been appreciated. I might even buy another if they come up with a version 2.0.

    Great, but needs adjustment

    • Doesn't Stay In Position
    • Loose Hood

      Comments about Magnetic or Clip On Base Work Light :

      I have two of these; one about 10 years old and one brand new. Neither held position until you disassemble and scuff the joints with coarse sandpaper. The Aluminum hood is loose and cannot be tightened - fixed by hacksawing a slot so the clamp can compress the hood and hold it in place. The swivel screw needs to be loosened in order to be able to rotate the head. While none of this makes much difference if you are using a fixed setting, I move mine quite a bit as I carve.

          Put this light on my 14" bandsaw in the same manner as pictured on the website and it works great. The magnet even has a plastic film on it to prevent metal to metal contact between the light mount and the mounting surface. The only issue I had was when it was extended out or with my saw running, the joints would move. Solved this in about 5 minutes with sandpaper. Not mentioned in the description, the unit I received also had a cage enclosure as well as the reflector for use as a traditional shop light. In the end I am planning on buying a couple more for other machines in my shop.

                  I use it on my band saw. I can clearly see the cut lines. It is a must have tool for safety. The quality is better than I expected. I strongly recommend this to anyone that wants good accurate cuts on the line, and wants to keep their fingers. You must be able to see what you are doing.

                  Comments about Magnetic or Clip On Base Work Light :

                  This is a very nice lamp. The long cord and strong magnet make it very versatile. I have used it on 2 bandsaws, and also under the lift for car repairs. I have not used the trouble lamp cover or the clamp on holder. The magnet holder has worked for everything I needed.

                      Use the light on my bandsaw. Magnet is strong,plenty of light and easy to use and set up. I don't know why I never bought one before. Guess I'm getting older.
