thank´s for the tip DaveR that is a clever way off doing it
but I was thinking of something that look like the J.Jacobsen lamp just with a mag.-glass instead
it has to be used on a table

Dennis my “Macpod” project is very easy to make and I’m sure can be easily adapted to your needs

Maclegno Yes I had yours in my mind and I know it can be very easy adapded to it but yours I will
use the way it is for my photogear :—) just a little heavyer I have a mymia RB 67

JJohnston close and a good one too but as my overcooked brain doesn´t remember wrong
there was a bulb in it and there was a sheild around so the light goes in one direction here
in Denmark when its a lamp we call them arkitect lamps

thank´s for reading and the tips
