RE:Micro Halogen Tying Lamps.

SSully,

I went to Home Depot and purchased a swingarm halogen desk lamp for the computer desk and use it for tying as well. I really like it as it has two light intensities and really illuminates a dark room. Plus, it can be adjusted by the weighted swingarm. The downside is that the halogen does generate some heat. The lamp is available at many department/office stores, however, it was only $25 at Home Depot. I have used regular desk lamps before and I would say this halogen is superior. I have used the flourescent magnifying lamp before and it is nice for the small flies, but I didn't like looking through it for long periods of time.
