    Those would be great if they came in 120 mm ID or larger one might work on one of my drill presses. Both of my mills and jig bore have 4" or larger quills

    this one is 115 mm oor 4 1/2" so it might be close

    the 18w would be overkill with its 180mm ID

    Price is good though

    After I posted that and happened to be in the shop using my Bridgeport, I'm wondering if any of those are a great idea. My reasoning is that if the ring light is mounted up at the top of the quill, the quill/chuck/boring head/etc. would cast a shadow at the end of the drill bit/end mill just where you need the light. A light coming in at an angle like the original posted did may be a better idea. Banggood / Gearbest / Aliexpress all have the LEd / driver as found on E-bay in an earlier post.

    You might come up with a parabolic reflector which possibly would create a focusing region below the quill. My main problem with just about any light is the intensity, if a lamp is at or near eye level I unless there is a shield totally blocking the LED modules from my sight they blind me. I have 15 9W led bulb shaped lights in my machine shop van the 10 ft ceiling where they are mounted works out good for me as long as I don't have to look up. Actually if I would install another 10 or so I think I could achieve near daylight conditions throughout the work area 15 more to give me a total of 30 and I cold just about remove 80% of all shadowing and still only be drawing a little less than that of 3 75 watt incandescent bulbs.with the light output of 18 100 watt bulbs

    You hav eto consider that is the amperage draw rating 8 watt LED assemblies will have any where from 500 to 750 lumins to put it another way from about the light output of a 50 to 70 watt incandescent bulb

    Right Franck, that's the reason why I chose to install it in the recess under my mill head so that I cannot have it in the eyes.

    I think the LED ring is the solution adopted by Ralph in the other post :
    Mill Table Light LED
    He doesn't seem to report any drawback about it.

    It's clear that I already had the LED and driver, so I built my solution around it, the ring is also a good solution.
    On the other hand, I think my lamp is better protected from hot metal chips flying away.
    Electronic stuff doesn't like it very much.
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    Yes, similar solution ! I like the reuse of the aluminum bottle.
    I don't know what kind of driver he used in order to be powered by a 12V DC battery.
    Cheers !

    8 watt for a single LED provides plenty of light ! (probably equivalent to a ~75 halogene bulb)
    But I don't know in the above product if the 8 W is the overall consumption, including the driver or really the LED power.

    What is the power of the ring you used on your mill ? Where did you purchase it?
    Cheers !
