Title: Work light
Post by: phpenguin on October 04, 2014, 04:55:53 AM
Hi,

I just finished making a portable work light.
It takes two replacement light bulbs.
It can be mounted on any flat surface with a C-clamp.
It has three reflectors made out of wooden panel covered by cooking foil.
It rotates 360 degrees in horizontal, 30 to 40 degrees in vertical axis.

You have no idea how much respect i have for people who -when they  have needs for tools or equipment, they use their surplus of imagination and creativity to make! Its a double-win situation.

One sign of hope I've seen in this world is that Open Source Hardware movement on the net. Open Source Software has great limitation due its nature. It only exists in digital world that depends on computers. In contrary Open Source Hardware covers everything human deals with in physical reality.
