I almost bought one of those lights, but the comments were that they were not bright enough, maybe on fire they would be.

Whew! I was looking at this one to install on my Ridgid Drill Press and Rikon Band saw.

Do any of you know of similar LED lamp that won't burn my shop down. I don't mind if it has to plug in to 115 Volts.

Do any of you have experience with the LED lamp at Woodcraft?

Hi all, this is just an attempt to help, so don't hammer me too hard for my cheapskate ways. I don't have a bandsaw, but I use a gooseneck lamp from any dept. store on just about everything in my shop. The kind meant to clamp to a kid's desk. They're about $10 and have pretty good clamping pressure. No magnets, however. They are especially good for my SCMS, I clamp it to the carry handle on top and the light stays where I want it no matter the degree, right or left.

Hey Nailbanger , we all got to do what we got to do. I must admit that I am guilty of stealing my wife's spent shampoo bottles for glue and other liquid despensers. I have also tried the painter's clamp on lamps, just couldn't get the light were I needed it. SO, I got this little beast and it works out great. I can twist it in a pretzel to shine into a hollow form that I am turning, just to make sure I got that little nub at the bottom.
Boy, we really skewed this posting. Not the 1st, not the last.

I have no respect and no pity for this company. They decided many years ago they would just make the cheapest junk they could dump on the market and milk their brand name for what ever profit they could. It would be a blessing if they would just go away and quit cluttering the market with the trash they try to pass off as tools..

Wow, I think I have one of these. It's a "Firestorm" model that I've been using for a long time. I'm glad I found this out! I'm upgrading now!

I used to think B&D was among the top of the mid grade tools and have over the years owned many. Haven't bought one in the last 10 years since they went off shore to China. No thank you I know I don't have one.

I don't own this tool either, but I signed up to get all notifications of CPSC recalls (since I don't send in warranty cards to get my name added to mailing lists).

I thought there might be LJs who don't send in their cards either and should know about the recall.
