I have 2 sets, 1 with 18 x 6mm leds and 1 with a ring led, the last one I printed the fixture for the ring led with a extended outside skirt so its not shining in my eyes but straight down at the work.

Nicely diffused lighting from that custom nylon ring. Great work.

At first I thought this was one of those circular lights...but no...homemade indeed.  That's a lot of work.

Great idea. I might adapt this to my drill press.
