This is an excellent shop work light. It has an 18" flexible steel gooseneck
that can be positioned as needed, while a strong 30mm diameter rare-earth
magnet in the movable base holds it securely to machine tops or other
The light remains in position even if the neck is extended far to one
side. There is also a rare-earth magnet in the included quick-release
side-mounting clip, which holds the base parallel to the mounting surface
and can also be readily detached and repositioned.
The powerful Cree LED has a telescoping housing that allows the beam to be focused from a wide angle to a narrow spot. The light housing and base are anodized aluminum; the side-mount clip is made of sturdy plastic. Three AA batteries (not included) provide up to 5 hours of continuous operation.
Perversely, the features that make this light so good also mean it cannot
stand on its own – it needs to be magnetically attached to some
surface. That's why we've made optional 2" diameter, 1/8" thick nickel-plated
steel mounting plates. They can be screwed or glued to any surface to
provide a reliable attachment point.
For bench use, we also offer an optional 1" long stainless-steel post
(available in 3/4" and 20mm diameters) that can be joined to the steel
mounting plate with an included bolt and dropped into a dog hole.
This is a light you will find indispensable for shop or site work. Highly
