Favorite tool - Ott Light


I love my Ott Light. I got three of them at Micheals with a coupon about 6 months ago and I use them a lot more than I thought I would. I have one beside my sink for examining beads once they are clean, it's also a area I do some resin work so it's helpful to have good light there. I've got one in the metal studio right by where I do the bulk of my wire wrapping, I find it saves my eyes to have some extra light there. The third moves around a bit, I use it when setting stones so it often goes with me where ever I may be doing that. I take it up to the School House Studio as I often do finishing work there. I am so glad I bought them, they tend to be expensive but with a 40% off coupon they really are worth the investment.

I have a small halogen adjustable desk lamp that I use a lot. I've seen the ott lights. May invest in one in the future.

I also love my Ott Light...and I would really like to have a couple more...I'll be checking Michael's and Joann's sales now!

I have a daylight lamp on my desk that I use all the time. I have never really thought of carrying one around for other tasks. Interesting idea!

For some reason I haven't been using my standing Ott light. Great post for reminding me to set it near my chair! Best light to work by, absolutely. (Bought fron JoAnn Fabrics with a coupon.)

I swear by full-spectrum lights. I have them all over the house. My favorite, though is a perfectly good Ott floor lamp with working bulb that I found at a thrift store for $12!

I too love my Ott Lights. You can't beat the price at Michaels, Joannes or AC Moore when they have a 50% off coupon.
I keep a floor stylr one by my chair in the family room whre we watch TV and visit in the evening. It is so helpful for the tired eyes at that hour.
