Just What I Needed
The snake arm light that came with my Craftsman band saw has become loose over the years and the light would not stay in position. This light solved the problem. The magnet is very strong and keeps the light just where I need it. The mounting clamp makes it even more versatile if I needed to remove it from the band saw and attach it to my lathe table or workbench.
Great product.

Woodworking Experience:
Light was just what I hoped for
A lot of people complained that the light drooped / would not stay in set position. I have had no problem with it holding position. Several mentioned the magnet is very strong. That is correct.

Snake arm shop light
I like the light it has a strong magnetic base or a clamp base so you can use the light any where. I use it for my lathe and band saw. I also like that I can direct the light where I need it.

Woodworking Experience:
Perfect for work bench lighting
I have one of these on either side of the work bench. Both position well and with LED 14 W bulbs are perfect for keeping things nice and bright while I work. The work bench is used primarily for photography equipment.

Woodworking Experience:
no complaints
This light has a strong magnet and long arm. I have it on top of my band saw and bent over to light the blade area. No problems. It probably works best on top of a flat steel area, but I think it would also work well on a smooth metal side if there is not too much heavy vibration. Good quality. Not cheap

Rockler Shop snake light meets my expectations.
This Light is just what I need for my work bench. At some point, I'll likely get one to illuminate my computer keyboard. The magnet is strong and the neck seems strong.

to add to my lathe to see into the bowls and outside profile cuts, works great with LED bulb and long cord is a plus. Magnet is strong and will not walk from vibration.
Dan on Dec 27, 2015
need a light for my lathe
Jed M on Dec 26, 2015
I purchased two of these a while back for either side of my radial-arm saw, you can position the lights to shine in at a 45-degree angle, thereby eliminating the shadow of the saw's support arm. They worked great, so I bought two more for my band saw and lathe.

Have one for my Lathe, it works great so I ordered one for my Bandsaw
