Clip-On Lamp Holder
I like the extra light that a clip-on lamp gives when I work. The problem is there never seems to be a convenient place to attach one.
To solve this problem, I devised a holder for my shop that can be placed almost anywhere. This holder allows the lamp clip to grip securely so I can have constant and stable light at all times.
The holder is made of ¾″ plywood. A dado in the mounting plate captures a small shelf, as you can see in the photo.
The clip part of the lamp tightly grips the shelf. A pair of dowels in the shelf fit inside the clip bends to prevent the lamp from sliding off the holder when the light position is adjusted.
