I got to brainstorming with all the things I had sitting around. I had a couple of old Ford flywheels from Fords that I had junked out in the last couple years, and figured that I could use those for wheels for a bandsaw. I also had a couple front hubs and brackets from an old Chevy Cavalier that I could use for bearings and support for the wheels of a bandsaw. I had some old steel sitting around that I could for a frame and table. I also had a large piece of sheet aluminum that I could use for covers for the wheels and the table.
Task lighting - Task lighting gives you the light you need right where you need it. Work lights make a convenient task light. They come in different models and wattages. Typically the compact fluorescent light bulb is either 10 or 13 watts. Most all of the models have a hook to hang them up by. The amount of light is fixed and cannot be increased without purchasing a new work light. Clamp on reflectors are very effective task light. Use compact fluorescent light bulb in the clamp on reflector. You can use bulbs ranging from thirteen watts to twenty four watts. This yields an illumination from sixty watts to one hundred fifty watts, with very little heat from the bulb. Workshop lighting is an integral part of the overall plan of laying out a woodworking shop. Depending on the space for the workshop there are different things to consider and keep in mind when laying out the lighting. The most important thing to keep in mind is to not create shadows on the work surfaces of the tools.
The most common home woodworking shop light fixture is the tube fluorescent lighting. They are energy efficient, low cost and easy to install. When designing the lighting for the woodshop, first determine where all of the woodworking tools will be positioned in the workshop. This can be done to scale on paper or physically placing each tool it its designated location. Once this has been done, you can now begin to determine your lighting needs. Where lights need to be placed and how much light you will need. This will help you to properly illuminate your workshop.
