A Better Work Light
You've probably used halogen work lights. And you've also probably burned your fingers on them, cussed the fragile bulbs and sweated from the heat they generated. Now there's an alternative.
The Husky Portable LED Work Light is cool to the touch, can take abuse, won't heat up a tight work space and costs only $35 at The Home Depot. I've been using it for various small projects, and I love it. Especially the fact that I can knock it around a bit. And since it's got an LED, its power use is minimal.
All that is great. But one thing you need to know: It can't match the brightness of your typical halogen work light. A traditional halogen work light might produce 8,000 lumens, 10 times the output of this light. But for small jobs or tight spaces, it's just the ticket.
Save Your Back and Knees With a Rolling Seat
Find creeper seats at any auto parts store, home center or online tool site. The model shown here is the Sunex 8507 Creeper Seat. A unit with a pneumatic lift and a contoured seat (for you Ferrari owners) could set you back a little more.
