I found a telescoping fluorescent light with no mount/base for it.  So, I figured out a way to mount it to my work table and give it full functionality.

Basically, take a wide wood bit, drill it perfectly straight into the corner of  the table and insert the light into the hole.

Quick. Easy. Free.  
Mine isn't a rigid fix (i only had 1 size bit) but it works and I'm not constantly moving the light around. I suppose if I had to stiffen up the light I could wrap the anchor point in duck tape.
I use a similar set up in my garage shop.<br> <br> I took a 6&quot;/15cm 2x4/5cmx10cm piece of scrap and drilled a hole for the tab at the base of the light. &nbsp;I put the lamp in the scrap then I clamp the scrap wherever I need the light.&nbsp;<br> <br> It was originally just a quick and dirty improvisation that I intended to replace but it works so well and is so flexible that I just left it as is.&nbsp;
