    HF Band Saw Modification-Magnet light

    HF Band Saw Modification-Magnet light. Now I can see the line.
    I had to put a longer cord on it to allow for upswing of the blade swing arm.

    I like the Ying and Yang sticker modification on your saw that probably helps you see the light eh? The machined aluminum knob is cool. Is the little tray to catch cut offs or do you run coolant? I need more lights on my shop equipment. Good thinking.

    Very practical and useful mod, Captain. I too have notice that I need more light nowadays when working on stuff. The price of growing old.
