I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included).

It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient, versatile bright light for your workshop and power tools.

I clicked on this hoping for a ac powered light. It is a neat little light you have there. I bought one and gave it to one of my brothers for use inside his tool trailer for light without turning on the truck lights. They are $3 down here at the regional farm supply stores.

These LED lights are incredible, I’ll have to keep my eye open for something like this lamp up here.

I have one for power outages and they are amazingly bright. Never thought to use in the shop. Be great if they made a plug in model.

My wife gave me something similar last year for Christmas. It was marketed as a light for the BBQ. Has magnets on the base and a long gooseneck. I use it on the bandsaw. Don’t think it ever made it to the BBQ.

Right there mate. LED light is really awesome when it comes to its light compare to other kind.
