Add a hands-free light to your tools for less than $8


It seems like every time I need to fix something with a tool, it’s in the darkest area of my home or garage. I have several flashlights that can help in these situations, but holding a light in one hand while trying to use a screwdriver with the other hand can sometimes be a little awkward. I found a potential solution with the Magnetic LED Tool Light from Lee Valley Tools. This simple little flashlight has two rare-earth magnets in the base that allow it to stick to the shaft of a screwdriver or other steel handled tool so that it can shine a light right where you need it. The LED flashlight is powered by small button cell batteries which are included. With a price of only $7.50, it seems like a worthy addition to your toolbox. For more info or to order one, visit Lee Valley Tools.

    It would be cooler if it had a little tilt to it.
