My old scrollsaw still works like it's 1989; unfortunately, my eyes don't. To brighten my work space, I built a small task light from a block of wood, a couple of rare-earth magnets, a keychain-size LED flashlight, and a length of #6 copper grounding wire, as shown.On the scrollsaw, I use it to light my cutline or from below—an angle perfect for threading delicate fretwork blades. I also find it indispensable during machine repairs. (The side magnet prevents small screws and parts from rolling away.)—Raj Chaudhry, New York
