I just came across a new item at Costco that may be useful to some,
and, with some modification, more useful to more.
Item 949179 ($14.39) is being marketed as a Bar-B-Que GRILL LIGHT.
It’s powered by three AAA batteries, has a reasonably secure clamp,
a_24_inch_gooseneck, and a tiny head with six LEDs. The distributor
tells me it has about a 40 hour battery life. As it is it can easily
clamp on the bench or a piece of equipment and bring the light right
down to your work. Of course there is almost no heat produced.
I’m hoping to influence the manufacturer to jazz up the light output
even more, and use a plug-in-the-wall power supply for uses such as
No, I don’t own Costco (damn)!
