I like working in daylight as much as I can and even with the lights on in the shop it is hard at times to see the marks on a board or alignment when using my sled .
This is the answer that solved that problem ,I made up a wooden bracket out of some birch scraps and shaped it to attach on the sled fences anywhere I like and mounted a LED light with five bulbs to it .
The light can easily be tuned on and off by a light touch to the lens and it will also automatically turn off after about ten minutes .
I had previously thought of using a light with a cord but scrapped that idea as it would have been to much hassle and this light can be left on the sled when it’s not in use or be removed in seconds .
In the last picture is a knife line mark in a walnut board and it is almost impossible to see without this light shining up the sled .
Another little helper and certainly more and more needed as the eyes get older .
