  • Led work lights

    In my shop and at home i use all led work lights for obvious reasons. I have a hand held led stick light, and an under the hood led work light. I recently purchased this Snap On led stand up light from costco for 29.00. This lights up a huge area so its was a great deal especially to have that snap on name applied to it..
    LED's are also great because they dont get hot and the charge lasts for hours on the cordless models.
    I remember the days when using the old school bulbs and metal cages on a 90 deg day sweating and burning your arm with it, then the sweat sizzles..dang

    Not to mention that they draw less than 1% of an incandescent or halogen or any other of those special heat source bulbs, and they are BRIGHTER !!

      You need the cordless, rechargeable stand up led lamps ....

      I do kinda like the old style for winter while under a car, the light throws off a good amount of heat.

        A cordless stand-up led is perfect for you to pinstripe out in the woods

        where to buy LED Park Lights and Dash Light
        by rkmiller
        I was calling vendors yesterday and had no luck finding LED park lights - which I think should also work for the dash light.
        I am running LED headlights and tail lights.

        I searched on this website and see that people mention running LED but not where they acquired them.

        Upgrading my taillights to LED--options
        by Bud_D
        I have dual taillights with incandescent bulbs currently in original Duolamp bodies, plus I have a Brakelighter LED third light/turn signal. Everything works, but I would like brighter lights from the dual taillights and perhaps reduce the current requirement to the generator. I would like to know my options. From what I have read these are my options:
        1. Paint the inside of the taillights with

        LED turn signals ??
        by Standing Elk
        Are most 6V LED turn signals polarity specific? A friend is trying to install a new set on his 30 pickup which is 6V positive ground. He has a 6V LED compatible blinker relay and still can not get the blinkers to work? The only thing we can come up with is maybe the LED lights will not work on a positive ground system. So what do ya think? Also what is the max allowable end play in the crank shaft?...

        Does any vendor sell a LED tail/stop light insert for drum tail lights. The increased brightness would be welcome although I already have a "3rd" LED window light. Ed

        LED 'Bulbs'
        by Charles Reese
        For safety (i.e. brighter) has anyone identified LED 'bulbs' for our As (headlamp, dash light, tail/stop lamp)? Would need to be usable (w/o modification) in original sockets (i.e. single/double contact; parallel bayonet base; single/double filaments). Anyone using Brattons' LED head light? However, they have been out of stock for some time.

        Sorry ... didn't realize this has been heavily...

        by 40B1930
        Anybody come up with a slick method to hold the bulb plate assemblies firmly in place? I'm not a wadded up newspaper fan. Thanks!

        LED replacement bulbs
        by Aretino
        Considering relacement of my headlamps, cowl lamps and single tail/ brake light to LED's. Soliciting suggestions on where to purchase these bulbs, part numbers and comments. I do not drive the cxar at night so focus is not a big issue. Daytime visability and low current are my goals.

        LED lights
        by DaWizard
        Since most of you know I have LED headlights, and I thought I posted that the rear were LED also, I find that some info was missing. So here it continues.

        The tail lights are the regular tail and stop TeaCup tail light replacement LEDs cut down to fit the Drum tail light, so I at least kept it original to my mid'28 with the Drum buckets.
