T15+3 LED
« on: July 09, 2011, 05:57 PM »
The T15+3 LED light works well with the centrotec chuck but is close to useless with the jacob's chuck. The tip of my drill bit is completely in the shadow of the chuck. My reference bosch with its foot-mounted LED does not have this problem and a second LED on top of the drill foot would have really helped.

It also blinds me when attaching shiny hinges as the light is reflected right back into my eyes.

thats the trouble with the lights on drills. they are anoying on some jobs and useless on others. but on occasion they are handy. i wish all these lights were able to be positioned on the drill in different positions and able to be turned on and off. sometimes that shadow from a drill bit is more annoying than the light
