Re: Good Lathe Lighting
I have a continuous row of fluorescents running the length of the shop, mounted to the ceiling, half way between the ridge and the front and back walls (one row each side of the ridge).
That gives me plenty of overhead light and I have a swing arm light on the lathe for task lighting. I have a CFL bulb in the swing arm and I mostly use it to eliminate shadows and for sanding.
Works for me
