I confess to being so incredibly stew-pit that I had to look “winding stick” up…..only to find out that I have used them before. Not in woodworking though, we used winding sticks {3 foot long steel rulers} to install M-14 and M1 Garand barrels to get the front sight base parallel to the receiver, haha.
Ebay has LED lights by the thousands and they are cheap, but typically are sent from China so you will wait a while. If there are any West Marine stores near you, they always had a selection of various different light bulbs. Having trouble imagining exactly how you are going to see when lit light bulbs are dead on in alignment…....then again I already admitted to being stew-pit!!!! Good luck.
