"old"??? I had to get one of those when I was 40..... Still running strong, I just wish it was LED instead of the round fluorescent tube. It takes a bit to get started on cold winter mornings

I had one with the round bulb from Harbor Freight and didnít last long. This one has LEDís and didnít cost much more than the other one. Bought this one at Woodcraft.

Have 2 26oo lumen reflector LEDs from Rockler, one above my table saw, the other over the workbench. The center of my garage also has one, plus several 200 watt equiv. bare bulbs in the other four garage sockets. No dark spots anymore. I also have one on each of my band saws, and a bright bulb above my SCMS. Really does the job.

If you buy a used gooseneck lamp from a second hand store, you can remove the threaded nut from the bottom, drill a hole and use the nut to secure it to another spot on or near your tool. Here are pix of my Laguna and small BS in the shop. Both are recycled and have small LED spot lights to focus their beams on the blade.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
