While this isn't a unique concept, the execution is a bit different. Most commercial "magnetic work lights" have weak magnets, a limited range, and are kind of flimsy. Additionally, the handful of nice lights that are out there are usually shockingly expensive ... so I decided to build my own ... aaand I had a bunch of magnets lying around begging to be used for something. My goal was a robust light that would "stick" well, have a lot of range, and not be very expensive to build. Total cost for this light (assuming you don't have any of the parts lying around) is about $40 - and excluding time spent waiting for epoxy to cure, maybe 30 minutes for construction.
1 Gooseneck Machine Light with switch
2 N40 or stronger 1" X 3/4" Magnets ( I bought mine from SuperMagnetMan)
1 Fiberglass New Work Electrical Box
1 Fiberglass Round Cover
1 Electrical cord (I bought a cheap extension cord)
2 Bugle-head screws that are compatible with your electrical box
Epoxy, drill, bits, etc....
Step 1: Construction
Step 2: In-use Shots
Here's a few shots of possible uses .....
