My current project is replacing all of the
original moulding in our FR with a nice
3 piece colonial style. Looks real nice so
Anyway, when I was at the borg (HD), I saw this
quartz-halogen light stand (2 lights/250 w
each) for $30 (w/2 extra bulbs.)
Thought to myself that it would be real nice
to "see" what I'm mitering/painting in a nice
bright light (nearsighted eyes pushing 60 now).
Wow - this was a great "investment". I can
put the light to one side and see the shadow
of a miter or joint before I nail it. Also,
sanding a puttied hole flush becomes an
Downside: the drywall looks terrible -
going to have a lot of work with all the
nail pops etc.
I figure that with this many watts glaring
on the work, it can only look better in normal
Thinking about using it for:
-reading the morning paper
-shop (doubles as a heater)
-photography (close to daylight
temp I think)
See the light...
