Recently I decided to do something about my poor garage shop lighting. I purchased an electrical box, double flood lamp holder, an extension cord and a remote-controlled On/Off switch. I assembled them into the rig you see here and bolted an “L” bracket on the back for mounting purposes. I installed two 5,000K LED flood lamps and mounted the light on the steel bracing that supports my garage door opener (GDO).
With the remote switch plugged into the GDO’s outlet, I can turn this light on and off from anywhere in the shop with the remote control. I’ve aimed the light at my assembly table. The raking angle really helps me see the imperfections in my assembly and finishing processes while brightening up a dark space.
