Question by Liv: Is there any place in Northern Virginia / DC that I can borrow / use woodworking equipment?
I want to make a corner desk with my son, but I don’t have (nor want to buy) a table saw, drill press, band saw, etc.

There is a community shop in Reston that allows individuals to ‘rent’ it for $ 10 a day, but they are closed for repairs.

Any ideas?

Answer by mrrosema
use hand tools as much as possible, or expect to pay way more than $ 10/day in 2008.

    This is a nice addition to the De Walt 18 volt cordless lineup. I have used the gooseneck light for years. Since I have a plethora of 18 volt batteries from other tools in the series, it makes sense for me to use this for lighting as well.

    The gooseneck does a better job for task specific lighting like under a sink or peering between studs. I use this one to provide overall lighting where the power is completely out in a room or space, and it isn’t worth bringing in power cords from elsewhere or setting up a generator. This augments my gooseneck nicely.

    I have used this light for three weeks doing rewiring. Do not purchase it and use it as your ONLY light source in a totally dark location. The incandescent models will fade and dim when the battery voltage drops. This fluorescent will stop suddenly with no warning when the voltage goes below what the electronics need to drive the lamp. For safety’s sake, use it to augment other lighting.

    I bought this thinking it would just be good for lighting a room or area, but it’s great for lighting under the hood of the car or working under the kitchen sink. It’s brighter than I expected. It stands up on the battery as a base or hangs on the hook. So far, I like everything about it. One thing to remember, it doesn’t fade like an incandescent light, but goes off completely when the battery runs out.

    This light is a good example of why people buy DeWalt gear. It is as tough as their other tools and it takes the same 18v batteries as my drills and saws, it provides decent light for a work area for hours on a single charge without getting warm. Changine the bulb, if you ever need to, is simple; just twist the top and lift it off, plug in the new bulb, slide the top back on and twist until it clicks home. The hook is handy too, so you can hang it from a nail, stand it on the floor, lie it on its side. The light weighs so little that the battery is the majority of the weight, so it is very stable when standing on its base.

    This is also part of my earthquake kit, they always tell you to keep a light handy. Recently our island has a power cut, pitch black under an overcast. I went outside to see if the lights were out in the whole area and this light provided better illumination than the street lights usually do. It also provides light over more than 270 degrees, mostly to the front, and sides, but there’s enough to the rear to see where your feet are when you are walking around in the dark.

    This much light for this price? Why are you still reading reviews, this is a no-brainer, just buy it already.
