    ?? Headllamp - ideas/suggest ??

    I'm looking for some ideas, or reccomendations for a light attached to my head/welding hood/ or whatever, to see what I'm prepping/grinding small pipe to weld, in low lighted area.
    I have lots of it to do, so trying to come up w/ systematic efficient way

    I don't want to have to take my hood off. I dont use/want auto darkening lenses. Best thought I can come up w/, is maybe siliconing some sort of small head lamp on the outside of a maybe Tigerhood that has a flip up filter lens, and leave the light on. That way, I , just leave the light on, hood down all the time, but hoping for a better way. Other way would be a small light around my head, and flip hood up each time to clean up welds, but then I'd probabaly need a quick/easy way to turn light off/on off/on b/t welds,. Any ideas? Also, any of know of a small light,or seen somethingt maybe your kids have, that could somehow be stuck on the outside of hood so I can see what I'm grinding at ?

    There are so many battery powered led work lamps around, pick one that uses the same batteries as your grinder.
    Do not believe everything that you think.

    It looks very tactical, the offset might help reduce the glare.

    When people mention picatinny I think of the arsenal on the other side of the county. My dad was an engineer for the army for 15 years at picatinny arsenal , working on the M1-Abrams tank as turret project management. I try to get there every year for the armed forces day when the bring the tanks and other equipment out.

    There are so many lighting options today, and many are incredibly bright. Hope you find something that works.

    Check this one out. Rechargable, very small. Clip it on the bottom of the shield, adjust it how you need it. Go to work.

    Nebo's are really bright !
    Looks like it is rechargeable with the USB port.

    More bright = More batteries
