I’m also looking to upgrade my lamp, and I’d be interested in
anyone’s suggestions. One thing that I’d like in a new lamp is greater
length of arm and reach. Mine never seems to extend far enough to put
the light where I need it. Also, I’d like sufficient flexibility for
the magnifying element to closely approach my bench pin, rather than
springing back and whapping me in the face unexpectedly, as my
current lamp does.
