I guess I am gonna let my ignorance show here, but what the heck is a "micro fence light"? Well I know now what you were talking about. About two months age I was using my router 'free-hand' and decided I needed better lighting. (OLD EYES I GUESS) So I spent hours looking on the net looking and finally ended up with a "Microscope Light" that was circular in shape and small enough to fit up inside my plunge router base. works like a charm but it is not battery operated. DRAWBACK! Not too much of a deal breaker, still went with it.
After reading your question to R F I looked up what you were looking for! Hey COOL Idea! But like you noted they have the market for them cornered for that particular one. What they don't have cornered is the super handy BOOK READING light My wife gave me a while back when I was reading wood working books in bed. It uses two "AA" batteries and has a flexible arm about 10" long and would work perfectly on a drill press, a metal lathe, a band saw etc. They are fairly cheap at Barnes and Nobles book stores if you want to actually hold one and see how flexible the arm is BEFORE you buy one! I now own several and the batteries last a long time compared to the "Hearing Aid Batteries used in Micro Fence Lights. (30 to 50 hours?) I bet there last 250 hours or more! Just a thought!

Reason: last sentence should say 'theirs should' , instead of 'there'
