can anyone point me in the right direction, i have seen somewhere on you tube, but cant remember where (must be my age) some people turning inside bowls ect with a small magnetic battery powered led light mounted onto there chisel, i mean these things are small in the 10 - 20mm size frame anybody know where they can be purchased or what they call them, sewing machine lights sprung to mind but a search on EBay drew a blank

cheers Tim

Same here. It caught my eye at the Harrogate show as a light for attaching to toolrest or tailstock. It has a cable and power supply though.

Looks like a good idea but I'm thinking one of those standard tiny penlight / key torch types with a magnet or clip glued to it would work very well, would need to be one with a positive on off switch, I might just try that, might even have one in a drawer somewhere.

I have this, but the magnet isn't really very strong on mine.
