    Looking for strong & cool bench light

    Guys, Anyone know of good, powerful and yet cool workbench light.
    I had an incident with my left eye, need all the light I can get, problem is, I have to almost stick my head under the workbench light to be able to see when I am working on computer/electronic stuff - this causes my head to boil, I don't want to melt what is left of the gray matter.

    Is there such a thing, light without heat? or I am dreaming?

    No, not at all, I just don't want to build it, I am working on a lot of projects and don't have the time to build my own light.

    Mr. Newbie, it is not nice for a noob to tell an old timer to , I know when to use and when not to, this board has some of the brightest guys and I am sure some of them have an experience. Sometime it is not easy finding what you are looking for.

    Friggin Jersey guys... always want everything handed to 'em...



    ITs funny you should mention this, i jsut spent the last few days clening out my garage/workshop. I have Ffuorescent and and halogens inthe celling, the Fluorescent arent bright enough but then the halogens are hot as F, and cast shadows on everything. I just set up a new work bench and decided to go the old school route and i clamped on 2 swivel arm drafting table lights on either side.. so if i need the extra light when working on somethign small.. i can jsut pull one of the lights right on top of where i'm working. I have 75W GE soft white bulbs.. they dont seem to be throwing off much heat. but then again i'm in a cold *** garage and its winter out.

    Something like this, except i got my 2 at a garage sale for 2 bucks each.

    I went through a stressful situation that caused a blood clot in the vessels supplying blood to the retina, the area affected is small and right next to the "vision center", this affected area does not absorb light as a result. As of the last doctor's visit, the retina built new channels for blood to go through, but this process is slow, it could take 6~12 month to heal, hopefully no long range damage like blurry vision.
    My other option is to medicate the eye, that should help it heal immediately, but I will pass, basically, the medicine will have to be delivered to the eye through a "shot", ya, alright, I am supposed to sit there opening my eye and seeing a needle approaching my eye! will never happen.

    Right now, I see sort of double on close range, hence the need for strong light and being close to the object. Another problem is, I lost depth perception since each eye acts on it own, I am sort of like Leela of Futurama, I sympathize with her

    Bottom line, don't stress over anything, it aint worth it - easy to say though.
