Lighting upgrade to Proxxon band saw

Recommended Posts


Same idea for the same reason:

I opted for the long gooseneck LED - with an  ON/OFF magnetic base.  It is not low cost, but it is bright, the magnet is a strong one, and it can get close but  not in the way.

I put these in my garage / workshop and the amount of light is significant.

I saw some advertisement on tv from these kind of light showing 15,000 lumens. They take a reading very close to the light and it is probably true.


In comparison in the photography world where they also have LED lighting, they also rate the lumens. To give a true reading, you also need to give the distance because 15,000 lumens at 1 foot or 3 feet is completely different.


Still to compare with one of these photography LED light at twice the price, I measured one: 3 times more lumens: 45,000 lumens.

So the distance is a major factor and price is also an indicator.
