RE:Micro Halogen Tying Lamps.
FWIW I bought a Westinghouse halogen desklamp model W4300 for $21.99 at OfficeMax. It's not a micro more of a mini. It has the features I wanted. A pedestal base, adjustable goose neck and a 20W halogen bulb. Man it's a whole new world.
A point of note they also carried one that was a clamp on model for about $43.00 that had a swing away magnifier.Real nice. If it was a pedestal base I would have bought it in a heartbeat.
Thanks again for the help.
