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.

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.

Gives Rockler a good name. Very well built. I like.
Makes fixed bendable light hit right on the blade or any other spot you don't want hiding.

Great Lamp!
This is a terrific shop lamp! Well worth the money. Well
designed and built. I have struggled for years with flimsy articulated desk lamps that are not designed or built to be constantly moved and soon fail. This lamp is sturdy, well designed for the purpose and well built. I may get another one for my table saw!

Works really well. Just what I needed.
You're not forced to use the harsh light of an LED lamp. Use whatever lamp type you like. The magnetic base is more than strong enough. However, sheet metal does not have enough ferrite mass to support the lamp. This works great on the pillar of a milling machine or any metal horizontal surface. Attach to thicker metal. If the gooseneck is twisting then check the fastening nut on the base. Pull back on the outer plastic sleeve and tighten. Also, twist the gooseneck cable counter-clockwise to tighten the metal coil. You may have to do this periodically depending on how much you need to keep adjusting the lamp. Yes, I will purchase another. Made in Taiwan and is of good quality.

Great bandsaw lamp
I purchased this lamp for my new band saw. The magnetic base holds it tight and the long flexible arm lets me put light where I want it.

An enlightening product
The light works very well on my new bandsaw. The magnet allows me to reposition the base if necessary and the adjustable arm helps me fine tune the light. Good so far

Great machine light
I put one on my bandsaw and on my drill press and what an improvement. The long neck bets the light right where you want it and the magnetic base held easily. I only put 40 watts in them as the light is concentrated where I need . I would highly recommend these for shops.

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.
dastine 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.
Hobart E on Dec 26, 2015
