Clamp-on light grabs magnetic mount
A clamp-on reflector lamp works great for task lighting, but some machines simply lack a good place to clamp it. To provide a place of purchase, make these simple holders. Make the base from 3⁄4″ stock and epoxy rare-earth magnets into 1⁄2″ counterbores in one edge. Then, cut a profile matching the inside shape of the lamp’s clamp in 1⁄4″ stock, and glue it to one face of the base.
