Drill Press upgrade I made. When you get older you need additional help.

I installed a light using a downlight fitting with a LED bulb in a can which is the perfect fit. The only cost was the LED bulb at about $2 US (R30 in South Africa) as I had all the other stuff.



I made an adjustable arm from some flat bar that I also had lying around.

And while I was busy with lighting I also installed a 20wat LED tube light in my shop. Makes a HUGE difference. I should have done that a LONG TIME ago!
