Inexpensive Lights for your Press???

Recommended Posts

Thought I would pass this along. I found these LED lights at Lowe's for $20.00 one has a spring clamp that works great on my 1050 and the other has a weighted base that works great on both presses. Here are some pictures. I know there are many lights made for the presses but these seem to work best for me.  JD

I too use two desk LED lamps.  Puts out a tremendous amount of light and because their LED, no heat.  Forget what I payed for them, but know it wasn't outrages.

I’ve not been a fan of base mounted desk lamps, but I like the idea of clamping high. Thanks for the pictures!

I have the same light (with the clip) screwed down to my bench.

Those clamp lights look mighty handy.

 

 

I picked up a pair of 48" LED strips from Harbor Freight Tools on sale.  I'm planning on mounting them to the shelves of my bench.

 

I'll be running a Skylight through the toolhead as well.

I love the Inline Fabrication skylight. Comes with a LED strip and a light that sits snugly in the middle of the toolhead. Sure is purdy... :goof:

Hornady locked and loaded light strip has been awesome for me the past few years. $17
