I'm in the market for a tall desk lamp for flytying. What is the best type of light to go for, halogen? Ones that don't cook the top of your head would be good.

Thanks

I have one of these. The old mince pies aren't as good as they used to be but this product is excellent.

I use the 13W OTT Jupiter Table Lamp which I get on very well with. Bought it from Stanley Gibbons - the stamp collecting people.

Thanks chaps. I'll go for the Ikea one as its cheap and seems more adjustable then the rest.
Cheers

I've got one and although beautifully made it's almost useless as a lighting source - far too dim.
I'd recommend anything with a daylight fluorescent tube. The 11 watt models are OK, although the 18 watt version is preferable although generally much more expensive.
The first one shown from IKEA looks OK, especially at that price.
Halogen lamps are bright enough, but run far too hot as far as I'm concerned.

I have sold a few of these recently, with a magnifier and led bulbs ideal for the job????

£33.95 if interested?:) :) :)

Hello Toby,

Have you seen the price of those anglepoise lights.

The ones from ikea are anglepoise style and less then 10% if the cost;)

And a bulb is included.

Thanks for the heads up.
Picked up 2 of the Globals last night for my son and I, excellent value for £9.
Also had a look at the other one you mentioned - the bulb protrudes under the cover, so might lead to glare IMHO, so settled for the Global.

Again, thanks for the tip off.

Agree I have one too. So useless as a light source I can't be botherd to plug it in. Use an Ikea one instead - runs hot but at least you can see what you are doing!
