See the Light

In the 1950's, Delta sold an accessory, known as the “Retirement Lamp” for its scroll saws. Most saws are missing this feature and originals now sell for around $100. I tried to use an articulated desk lamp for years. It either got in the way or provided poor light. I recently decided to reproduce the retirement lamp.

Lowes sells a 6” reflector lamp for under $10. Combined with shop scrap, a little labor, and a cool-running LED bulb, I now have perfect lighting for my scroll saw. I wish I had built this 20 years ago. Think I’ll make one for my band saw.
