Those lights are sweet! If I can find time I may copy your design. You could put an outlet in it too.

I keep waiting for wobble light to go out of business or the patent to run out. Seems to me they had a great idea with the bulb types and untipping design. Other than that all I hear is broken switches, handles, outlets and disrespectful attitude by their employees...

For what they charge for the wobble lights you would think you would get top notch service and a great warranty. As soon as that patent does run out or another company puts out a light that has more lumens for its size im selling them. It won't be long before we see massive lumen varible power led versions. Dam you can get handheld 4000lumen flashlights so it won't be long before we see larger units that are designed for the job site. They could also be cordless also.

BC : Do they sell LEDs so that you could make a homemade jobby like the one pictured?

I always figured you could attach a large stainless steel bowl to a homemade light and it wouldn't fall over like the wobble lights.

They do but it's not easy to rig up your self. They are pretty advanced bits of kit when you get into them lumens and a 4000lumen light currently runs about $300+ so a 40000lumen would be about a $2-3k light. The price of these things drop fast though. It was only about a year ago I paid $300 for a 1000lumen light and now there's 4000lumen units for the same price.
