Re: Tying Lamps
I have an old architect's drafting lamp that has a multiple magnifier - use a 'bathroom/kitchen' circle-lite tube in it. I got the lamp that the Nor Vise guys sell to go with my vise and that uses one of those 'daylight' type tubes on it. Best color comes from the daylight tube. Just don't use a 'soft white' fluorescent bulb - way too pink!
A regular old school 'high intensity' lamp with a good 100W bulb is the way to go. I'm a huge fan of GE 'Reveal' style bulbs - the color spectrum is excellent.
If you run into a great lamp that needs a clamp style base, I picked up an extra clamp base for quite reasonable at H.R. Meininger's, which is an excellent artist's supply.
Which do you guys prefer, incandescents or fluorescent? Halogen? L.E.D.?
More importantly, SET THE HOOK!
I still say he married me because he took me ice fishing and I still wanted to go fishing with him again!
