At some machines, such as a drill press, bandsaw, lathe, and scrollsaw, fine work requires clearly seeing what you're doing. Fortunately, those tools often have many ferrous surfaces for mounting a magnetic light. I place LED sewing-machine lights, available for less than $10 online, at several machines in my shop. Flexible necks allow you to precisely position the illumination, and removing the light fixture takes seconds when you need it out of the way.
