I guess to add a neutral you need to go to a 4 prong plug? I don't know if it would be code to use ground for neutral. It would probably run.

Here's how I solved the problem. My work space is shall we say...tight and my band saw has to sit on my workmate which only has one place it can go. This particular spot is of course just right to cast shadow from both lights in the garage. Whilst lost in Ikea one day I spotted their JANSJÖ USB powered spotlights which were just a couple of quid. To be honest I wasn't expecting much for the money but I was actually very surprised with the light output. A bit of sticky back velcro and a cheap USB powerbank and it was all sorted. Total cost with one light and the powerbank was about £6 if I recall correctly and I can also use it anywhere else I need a bit of extra light.

I have a benchtop BS and DP, right next to each other. The flex light on the DP doubles as a light for the BS.

My small band saw needed a light, so I got a gooseneck lamp from Goodwill, dismantled it and drilled a larger hole in an L bracket, screwed the base of the gooseneck into it. Drilled two small holes in the upper wheel case, bolted the other end of the L bracket in and strung the power cord around to a plug. Works really nicely. Put an LED spot into it and voila. High visibility. Out of the way. Cost about a buck.

DRT, and I thought I was cheap! Good idea, though.
