What type of light for 550B

    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??

    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,

    I use a DeWalt "snake" light.

    One of those cheapo government swing-arm flourescents...

    As mounted on the bench near my 550 here:
