Sorry...this is my first post here and I don't know if this is the appropriate forum but I wanted to share.
I've restored a number of antoque woodworking machines and I just acquired a vintage Sheldon lathe. In almost all cases I upgrade as well as restore, adding lighting to the machine. I'ts been hard finding gooseneck lighting that fits well on any machine but I just came across these great lights at IKEA.
They're LED lamps, with an extra-long gooseneck and they're only $10.
They should be easily adaptable to any machine.

Excellent idea, thanks...and with an Ikea nearby...I'll be taking two.
My wife picked up two, glad she did, these things put out nice bright light, and don't get hot.
$10/each but she said they were on sale and normally $20.
I'll fiddle with permanent mounting or maybe grab a few big ring magnets. Thanks for the tip.
Excellent Idea, make sure that it is water proof, if used for metal cutting operation, especially Grinding.
I have been using these for some time, and they are excellent. We use them indoors too. They are also available with a clamp fitting (though the gooseneck is a bit short on those) and in silver as well as black. Incidentally, the low voltage plug and socket on the 'wall wart' supplied with the lamps is a standard 2-pin DIN plug and socket, commonly used for connecting the speakers in stereo systems.
