Default My BIG lathe light

I like a lot of light when I'm turning. It really makes turning for me more enjoyable. I have a couple of the IKEA lights with homemade magnet mounts that are popular and they are nice but my big gun is an LED loading dock light. This thing is great. I got an open box deal from Amazon for around 1/2 price and it turned out to be brand new with just a slightly torn box.

I have seen a lot of discussions on various groups over the years on lathe lights and wanted to suggest this as an option.

Wear "shock-resist" Sunglasses when you turn?

Rod,

There are two links here, the first has a polycarbonate lens, the second a tempered glass lens. My light is the first link. - Jim

The current price on Amazon is high. It used to be around $175. As you probably know, the prices on Amazon can fluctuate. I got it for $99.

My dentist wants to buy one... Nice light. It's never too bright in a work shop.
