I made this with the leftover dowel I had from the desk lamp. Works with the t-track system. Happy Birthday DAD!

Thats a really useful idea – I may have to borrow from your design a bit ;) Again, lighting for the lathe… lol Why is it so hard to get good lighting on that thing!?

LED strips are easy and inexpensive to find on ebay. They run on a 9 volt battery or a 12volt adapter (also on ebay). A strip of lights and an adapter cost about $6-7.

Wow, that’s a slick idea. Having both battery and AC version around the shop could be really useful! Great job!
