Worth EVERY penny!
By J. Bannerman
This is a first class lamp. The goose neck is flexible yet holds the position you put it in. The magnet is very strong. Oh yeah, did I mention that the magnetic is VERY STRONG? They include a clamp base but I can't imagine needing it. I will have to find another use for the clamp...which is also made to a high standard. The toggle switch at the top is a vast improvement over the expected twist type switch which invariably craps out after a few months of use. Even the cord is "industrial strength". If you want a quality lamp that works...look no further. I would not change ANYTHING about this setup. We installed one on both sides of a 45 ton metal working machine. The lamps put the light where we need the light. We used the spiral fluorescent bulbs and so there is really no heat generated to speak of...just lots of light at 27 watts each. I guess the only downside to buying these lamps is that once we installed them on the new metal working machine, all the other employees wanted the same lamps on their equipment. We have now installed three more units and have ordered two more for some new equipment on order. Rockler got this one right!

Rockler Snake Arm shop lamp.
By Rusty Sly
I've shopped for extra lights for my power tools, and this is the only one that stays put in almost any position. In addition to a clamp, it comes with a powerful magnet base. Both are interchangeable with just four screws. This is built to the same fine standards as all Rockler tools and accessories.
July 17, 2013: I've found that if the lamp's magnet base is attached to the steel side of my band saw, when doing a lot of heavy cutting, the lamp base tends to slowly slide down from the vibration. That was easily corrected, by placing the magnet flat on the unused area of the steel table. This did not change my rating of five stars.

I use this on my wood lathe with the magnetic base and it puts the light where I want it.
