LED lights...... check this out! - 05-25-2020, 06:20 PM

Before you go any further I am not trying to sell anything. This is only to maybe help someone find a more cost efficient way to light their table up. I have an old style light that just took 3 bulbs and did a fair at best job. Shadows were bad and so on. Anyway, I stumbled upon these “UFO” style adjustable light bulbs on eBay and ordered 2. I figured for $13 each it was worth a shot. My light went from 3 bulbs to 2 of these (one one each end) and wow am I super happy with the purchase! Just figured I would throw this out there. If it helps anyone like it did me I’ll be glad I passed it along.
Here is the eBay link where I bought mine and pics of the bulbs and my table underneath.

In my opinion...

If you want to promote something, sell something or just in general want to be helpful ...AND... the subject matter requires pictures, go to the "Test" forum first (just below NPR).

Post your pictures. If they are way too big (like the ones you posted, fix it there first. Then post here.

My sense is that people that click on this won't stay as the screen scrolls forever trying to see just what the heck you have posted a picture of.

Thanks for the good thought but please, improve your technique.

Well, I for one find your post helpful as for ~$15usd these could be an option for a lot of people.

How well do they light up the table at greater heights? They don't look too terribly bright for an LED still, but pictures and LEDs can be very deceiving. Also, do you have a non-LED light next to it on the right?

Nobody wants to babysit how a picture is displayed on a forum, and that's not "user error", it's defective by design.

The non led in the center was removed. They are incredibly bright, the last photo of the table is in a finished basement. In my opinion worth every penny.

Anyone who cares to criticize my pictures can do as they please. I don’t know anything about resizing a photo nor do I care to.

A great retrofit for older table lights

I have a table light that accepts 3 bulbs. I took out the incandescent bulbs and put in 3, 60 watt LED's. Perfect lighting and low energy usage. Not much heat generated either.

Perhaps an option for those who can't afford a table light.

See that SHADOW behind the cue bumper??

That's from uneven lighting - NOT what you want on a pool table.

Wow that's cool! I never saw one like that. I have my "shop" in my "living room" and may try one of these in an existing ceiling fixture to get more light to my tools.

This one looks similar but a different folding pattern. LED's really changed everything. Any shape you want, and any amount of light you want since the power consumption is so low.

All tables will have some shadows, you would need a light longer than the table to eliminate all the shadows.

They sure did; that's why the physicists who co-invented them were awarded the Nobel prize for their achievement:
