My band saw is equipped with a light, but when I converted the saw to 220 I can't use the light.
Is there a bulb that can be used with 220?

Bought what was sold as a grill light at one of the box stores. It has LED bulbs and a combination magnetic or screw down base. The long flexible goose neck is stiff enough that it stays put.

The main problem I see in your workshop is that there is absolutely no sign of sawdust anywhere!! Lots of light but no sawdust.

Not great, but that should last me well over a year on a set of batteries as long as I don't forget and leave it on.
You will forget and leave it on.
Stock up on the batteries.

Take a look at this article:
Review: Inexpensive great task light - by EBpenguy @ LumberJocks.com ~ woodworking community
The lamps cost <$10 each. I turn a smaller wooden base with a recess for the magnet. Results in a very inexpensive, bright LED lamp that attaches anywhere and is very flexible. I've used a dozen of these for over three years and they work great. Only drawback might be the need for an outlet.

I use the "Janso" light from Ikea. They sell the desk base model for $10!!!. The clamp base is $15!!! The light beam is well focused, good color, and intense. The best bargain. This light does NOT use batteries. I have one on my computer desk, the other I use on the work bench.

Lightbulb LED light with a magnetic base

Funnily enough, I just bought this LED light with a magnetic base today. Found it in my local tool sales / repairs shop in Aldershot, UK. It cost me the princely sum of 5.99 (about $9). I haven't had the chance to try it out while actually cutting on the bandsaw, but it looks good so far.

What can I say?

This would be a perfect place for a video of Phil Hartman's 'The anal retentive woodworker', but I can't get it to work. So, here's the link, it's well worth a watch.
