I have a nice workbench setup in my garage where I reload .40 and 9mm ona Dillon 550B. For lighting I have a 200W light bulb and two 40w flourescant bulbs lighting my bench. The problem I am having is I would like to find a very small light to mount next to my 550B so I can see in my cases better. I have looked around at Menards, and Walmart but haven't found any lights that are small enough to stay out of the way.

Does anyone have any recomandations??

I have Chinese/E-Bay knockoff of one of these:

Its a super bright light. I have mine mounted on a sheet metal "lip" on the strong mount.

That looks like it just might work. Thanks

I use the same light on my Hornady progressive to shine into the case after the powder is dumped.

I use one of these. I know it's not on a 550 but I think it would work on just about any press. I got it at Grainger.

I'm using one of those Halogen desk lights with a really long flexible neck. (got it at Office Depot). It allows me to position it for whatever I want to keep an eye on. If it's cold in the basement it has the added benefit of keeping your hands warm. :) It's useful for other things as well so I'm pretty happy with it. I do like these little LED's I'm seeing though so I might have to try one of those out.

Have a good one,
Dave

I use a DeWalt "snake" light.
