    Adjustable Workshop Light Pivot Mounts

    As I get older it seems like more and more light is needed in the Workshop.

    Was asked by someone how I modified the Swing-Arm Lights for my Milling Machine ~ When decided to add an additional 2 more lights to the large ‘Over-the-Jeep’ Workshop table took some photos this time when modifying the Swing-Arm lights …

    The stock lights are designed to be clamped to a table or desk with plastic mounts … but I want them to mount securely in metal pivot mounts positioned over my head so I can pull them down and adjust them like surgical lights.

    The lights are very inexpensive on Amazon.com and if you order them with other items many times you can get free shipping…

    Think purchased the lights on sale for less than $17
