Found this Sylvania LED with a magnet base at Menard's (big box store).

The mag base is nice if you want to pull it and use elsewhere...

I built an LED light for my press. Just used a white LED, a resistor and 3 AA cells. I wire tied it to the press and have it pointing down into the shell.

I bought a white LED keychain flashlight from HarborFreight for about $1. I'm looking for a grommet to put it in to hold it in place in the center hole in the top of my LNL-AP press. I think it has a wide enough angle to illuminate the case after the powder drop. If not, I'll take the thing apart and mount just the LED on the yoke of the press.

Red Dog, is the magnet strong enough to stay in place and how expensive was it if you don't mind me asking ?? Looks like something I could use. Thanks.

Price was $19.99. Found it on an end cap display in the lighting section.

It takes a little effort to pull off the press base. Never moves while cycling the press.

Had it in the garage yesterday on the caliper mount while I did a brake job, stayed on the whole time, even brushing against it a few times.

Thanks Red Dog. I like the LED lights because they cost so little to operate and I just want something to light up the inside of my case so I can see the powder charge.
