I am going to redo the lighting around my bench and am interested in
some opinions. Do you have any regarding:
Placement of lighting
Whether it is fixed, movable or combination
Incandescent versus flourescent versus halogen
I have overhead fourescents in the room. I have 3 small floods
directly over the bench with marginal adjustments. I am
comptemplating removing the small floods and adding two small
adjustable halogens. I am concerned about how the lighting affects
the view when doing detail work (like setting) while looking through
magnifying glasses. I also need adjustable lighting for sawing
The drawback of halogen is the heat, but the lighting seems superior.
Small adjustable flourescents are appealing, but I’m concerned about
how the light affects the view through a 10X loop when examining work.
Incandescents seem to have the same flaw.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
