Man Lamp

My light needs were not being met in the lab. Garage, lab, whatever. Anyhow, I picked up a halogen work light at the hardware store, thinking that the base dimensions and output would make for a perfect movable lab light source.

This thing is a monster. Check this out.

what the fuck is this thing

Incredible. I guess this could double as a goddamned heater. My digital thermo was still climbing at 145. FWIW, it is perfect for the lab. Just sort of confusing how brutish it is. Impressive.

  1. Pretty sure you won’t want to leave that thing on and step out. Your lab might not be there when you return.

  2. I hope you have some smoke detectors installed.

  3. Great post, It’s so important to have good fire prevention.
