Maand geleden

You never realize how bad something is until you upgrade. We do a tremendous amount of work in our shop and whether we are turning wrenches or filming, poor lighting was an issue. Cameras do not like dark, it is difficult to capture quality video without sufficient light. It was time to upgrade.
Need your shop lit? Northwest Lighting Systems has a solution. They've been in business since 1991: nwlightingmn.com/

I’ve replaced 2 complete installs of leds in 2 shops in 5 years. Leds have a nasty habit of dying completely, without warning. So plan on buying several extra if you’re installing leds.

LEDs strobe and using them over rotating machines - lathes, drill presses, etc., can make you think they are standing still. US Navy forbids strobing lighting to be used off one generator so the whole compartment lighting on a single cyclic feed won't make the workspace dangerous. The answer? There are RF Driven LEDs to be strategically installed will kill the strobing effect. You only need a couple in critical areas to break the strobing. Be careful.

You mention antelope. Ive never harvested one because I have always heard they taste horrible. Then some guys say it is better then whitetail. Which is it. Good or bad. Are there tricks to avoid a bad tasting one?

Just catching up, a couple days late. Legarms, I am sorry to hear about your and your family’s loss. I lost my dad passed in 2003 to cancer. I have always said that the ones that leave us early become the welcoming party for the next to go. There are many good folks up there greeting those who leave us.

Yeah Nick out here we use lumens the power that a led chucks out (instead of candles) and we use kleins for the led color. Example 4000k is natural white and 6000k is bright white slightly bluish....

Im from Denmark living in northern Norway in the midnight sun in the summer. I worked hard for 7,5 years on my education to be an electrician engineer. It's an "easy" education ecomically, because it's allways easy to earn 500 bucks when you need it, because is was an electrician first :-) I am one of the very few with long educations with 35+ years of experience is 90% in the field and the rest of time teaching youngsters how to use a tool and why. There is a hairfine difference between good light and good light with armatures placed nicely for the same price!! As a customer you walk in the shop in good lighting....... and 2 misplaced lamps destroys perfect. Not a problem but when you see it. you will notice for many years. In the 4 man company i work with we notice details all the time since we are proud to be electricians regardless of our education. And if you want safety: Do it the european way! But you don't give shit til it hurts. I know that!

"lighting is key" is that where the term "key light" comes from? You think that's a disaster? I'm in the middle of moving and trying to fix things and make bullets for friends and family, that gets to be a disaster. I'm making some LED light panels. They aren't as nice as keystone's but a lot less expensive. Painted plywood, LED strip stuck to it with double sided tape and the power supply attached to the back. Would the same over kill lighting be good for the mill? Maybe just cantilever off your frame? Worked in a machine shop that had lighting like your shop had or worse and damned it was hard to see what you were doing.

Just so you know. The plural of a footcandle is footcandles. I hope they did not sell you 5000 or 6000 kelvin lights. They are high in blue light. Blue light damages your eyes if you spend a lot of time in it. Do internet search “eye damage from blue light”. If they did sell you those, always wear amber safety glasses. They block blue light! In the lathe area, if you can, turn one light upside down so it does not have the cave effect. Respectfully, Kevin

Good Morning: Fellows I hope you have checked out the Human Lumens (factor) . It is known that the wrong type of Lumens in an enclosed building can be harmful to human health. Hopefully you used LED lighting. As with a fellow that I know, after two years of working in the shop with his new lighting, his wife found him doing the chicken on the shop floor. Seizure caused by lighting. Just saying that I have seen this first hand.

I was fortunate to get some led lights at the scrap yard. They were 24v, which is the same as my solar power, and they were very bright. I also got some LED strip lights, and they will work well In other areas, too.
