Inspection Light Replacement

I use a 150 watt bulb in an old trouble light corded for inspection before priming. Anything I can look at that's handheld and cordless. The cord is a pain most times. I do use 18v Makita and Milwaukee 12V and 18V tools. Not sure an LED bulb is what I should be looking at for lumen brightness to catch those pesky flaws.

Re: Inspection Light Replacement

Festool makes one specifically to do what you want, except it isn't cordless.

Milwaukee does make some of the nicest cordless lights out there with awesome color temperature. I sometimes just use my little stick light for finding flaws that need to be corrected. Their newer M18 Rover with the flexible head is pretty awesome.

Re: Inspection Light Replacement

I use 2 Milwaukee Rovers, the one with the swivel head and the smaller one with a handle. I also started wearing a headlamp when doing my final, helps catch some stuff.

I also don't do large projects, mostly bathrooms so this may not scale up as nicely
