Kenn Harris: Yet another great project Alan! I, like you purchased three of these little jewels, but ordered them on-line as they are now available directly from IKEA. Instead of using a one piece base, I made my bases in two pieces and glued them together as it seemed to be easier and stronger than a one piece unit since I used a larger 3" magnet from Harbor Freight (didn't want to take any chances of the units falling off my lathe or bandsaw, etc.). They work wonderfully, and I will soon order a few more as there is ALWAYS a need for more light in my little shop in my garage! Thanks for sharing and as always, safe turning to you!

Josef Roesler: Well, I would get one but since shipping is $15, that's just stupid.

tom brock: just got mine. can't wait to hit the shop to make base. get light from IKEA. they are $9.99 + shipping. so i bought 3-so overall each light was $ 16.00

Ken Rizza: Cheap alternative to a good LED that can be found on woodturnerswonders.com

As Wood Turns: Hmmm. I'm sure that I'll remember this next time I'm tempted. For tenon sizing I'm now using sharpened end wrenches. Thank you for highlighting this risk. Alan Stratton

twistoftime: I am continually amazed to find YouTube turning videos that show turners using calipers while the piece is turning. This is a great way to discover just how sharp those metal pieces are, usually confirming that metal will penetrate flesh. You speak of being safe, and then demonstrate a great way to collect an injury. It only takes one slight mis-movement to catch and then fling that pointed metal piece into some part of your anatomy. Working safe means...working safe!

As Wood Turns: Well that's a tough one. How about gluing your blank to a scrap block - top to faceplate? Make sure your blank is a little longer than otherwise. This would enable you to turn a recess in the bottom, Then shape the rest figuring for a flat at the height you've targeted. IMO the flat should be covered by the IKEA lamp base. Then part it off at the flat. For me, turning would be a little awkward because you're cramped between the facepate and the base. but do-able. Give it a try. Alan Stratton

Alan Cann: Good evening Alan, I have had my Ikea lights sitting in my workshop for a month now, but I don't have a scroll chuck yet. Is there some way I might be able to do this with a faceplate?

Rick McQuay: I had that happen on some of my videos.

As Wood Turns: It wasn't the camera - It was the production software that downgraded the resolution. After your comment, I checked further, found the obscure setting, and fixed it. Thank you Alan

Rick McQuay: Nice little project, going to subscribe. Hopefully soon you can acquire a higher res camera.

As Wood Turns: Joseph - please check out my latest video. I turned a small bowl without a chuck. Alan Stratton

As Wood Turns: Yes, any tool with a iron base that needs light can use one. I just purchased 4 more. Alan Stratton

Bill Skoros: Nice fun and simple project. While I don't have a lathe, its a great idea and I can create something with a band saw for my small shop at home. Can always use more light when using it or my drill press.

As Wood Turns: Great idea - I'll get one for several of my other tools. Alan

Joseph Ford: Hi Alan - I'm always looking for more light while working - ops I mean playing - on the lathe. Very nice I'm ordering some today! I think some would be nice on other shop tools too, like my bandsaw!

As Wood Turns: Nice that it all works for you. Alan Stratton

Brown Suspenders: Thanks for the "lamp". I bought 2, attached 1 to a 4" steel spring clamp and I have saved the other. Fantastic lunch. Yes, they do make the "clamping" kind but the reach is much shorter..Now I am off to buy the 1x8 spindle tap. Keep the videos coming.

As Wood Turns: Well said. Thank you Alan Stratton

Greg Heller: The only Ikea store in Washington is on the Seattle side of the Puget Sound... I live on the other side and don't go to Seattle unless forced to... Thanks again for the ideas. Always looking for something new.
