Task lighting - Task lighting gives you the light you need right where you need it. Work lights make a convenient task light. They come in different models and wattages. Typically the compact fluorescent light bulb is either 10 or 13 watts. Most all of the models have a hook to hang them up by. The amount of light is fixed and cannot be increased without purchasing a new work light. Clamp on reflectors are very effective task light. Use compact fluorescent light bulb in the clamp on reflector. You can use bulbs ranging from thirteen watts to twenty four watts. This yields an illumination from sixty watts to one hundred fifty watts, with very little heat from the bulb. Workshop lighting is an integral part of the overall plan of laying out a woodworking shop. Depending on the space for the workshop there are different things to consider and keep in mind when laying out the lighting. The most important thing to keep in mind is to not create shadows on the work surfaces of the tools.
Most basements are not air conditioned spaces, so heat from the lights becomes an issue during the summer months. Hang fluorescent light fixtures in between the joists. Attach a light weight chain to the sides of the adjacent joists and suspend the fluorescent light from the chain. Hang the fluorescent light fixture so that it is flush with the bottom of the joists. This will help keep it out of the way and still provide ample light. It might be necessary to use an additional light or two because of the shading caused by recessing the light.
