Spring-Loaded,Cantilevered Work Light
Roland Schild, Greenfield, Ill.: Schild made a spring-loaded, cantilevered work light that'll extend 18 ft. out from the wall.
Equipped with a 300 watt halogen bulb, he simply patterned the light after a small desk lamp. He took measurements off the small lamp and increased them proportionately, using 1-in. sq. steel tubing and three garage door springs to hold it in place. The light pivots on the end of the hinged arm, and it swings 180?, so it can be positioned at al-most any angle. Schild built another light for another wall of his shop that reaches out 12 ft.
