OFFICE MEMO Lamps and Lighting Date: 8/26/96
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 eliminate shadows.
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.
