........I was on the cusp of buying myself a LightForce magnetic base work light http://www.lightforce.net.au/products/p ... yworklight for the sum of £65+P&P :shock:



When I remembered that I had an old/unused CB magmount in the shed & I got to thinking about buying a work light from off of the bay & fixing it to my old mag mount viewtopic.php?f=53&t=8636 :)

So after a bit of a trawl I came up with this Wipac work light for £11.99 free P&P :)

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... K:MEWNX:IT



:cool: :cool: :cool: :D It turned up today so I did this to it :D







Found an old curly cable with a cig lighter plug on one end :thumbup: It used to be for a rechargable tourch that has long since died :)



Poped it all together :)





And hey presto :D :thumbup:



It even fits nicely in my cetre console ready for action :D :D :D



So one work light for just £11.99 :D A saving of @least £55 :dance: :dance:

What is the wattage on that lamp?
55 :) It pulls approx 4amps when on depending upon if the engine is running or not (3.86-4.28Amps) :) My only worry is the gauge of the cores that were inside my curly cable as they appear to be no thicker than one of my pubic hairs :lol: But I thought I'd take a punt with it as it looks cool :thumbup:

A worklight shouldn't need to be fantastically bright :idea: so you could put a lower wattage bulb in to reduce the current draw :thumbup:

I spotted that at the caravan shop the other day but resisted!!! I may have to go back... :oops:
Go on :) What can you buy for a tenner these days :?: :!:

I have to say that I'm very happy with how it's turned out for a little under £22 including the extension lead I've ended up with IMO a very versatile search/work/camping light :D That's a saving of more than £40 over the LightForce one I was so close to buying :shock: :)
