I finally started to continue carving on the Reverie Harp that I started about 2 years ago.
But I was set back with some delays, like repairing some needed things, like repair an Ant Damaged Gazebo Shed roof.
After that I had to take care of some health maintenance problems, such as Cataract surgery on one eye.
So now after all of that, I started carving on the Harp again. I wasn’t satisfied with the light source I’ve been using, so I took a trip to our local Walmart. I was looking in their hardware dept. but couldn’t find anything there. So i asked the clerk what else they had. He told me to check the area that had desk lamps, & I found just what I needed. I think this lamp is made exclusively for Walmart.
My only problem with this light, is I see a lot of flaws in my previous work I did on the Harp.
Now I have to go over what I had done before. I think my improved eyesight post cataract surgery also has a lot to do with it.
Pros of this product:
The light that it gives allows for shadow, that CFLs can’t do.
It gives off a natural light for true colors
Cool to touch, plus no radiant heat, like other type lights.
Easily adjust to aim at what you’re doing.
Low wattage, 2.4 Watts for the same amount of light as 60 Watt incandescents.
The cost was very reasonable, I bought it on sale for $15.98.
I was surprised because everything in LED is quite expensive.
I also bought one for use on my lathe.
I recommend this to anyone who has difficulty with lighting.
