Gizmos at the Hardware Store

Yesterday on our trip to the hardware store I spotted a gizmo I thought might come in handy for threading/sleying.  It is a hand's off light that hangs around your neck.  For less than $15 I figured it was worth buying and if it didn't work for me, Doug could probably use it in his workshop.

The light at The Spinnery was pretty good, but it was hard to see to sley so I whipped out the light and voila!  It really did help.

Guess this will remain in my weaver's toolbox after all.

I have an LED camping headlamp that we bought during a power failure when I had a weaving deadline. It worked well, although I ended up with a mark on my forehead after wearing it for a few hours. :-) The one you found would solve that problem!

Headlamps have been a valuable member of my tool chest for years now. I read in bed with them, I use them to see closer items that are hiding from me, they come in handy in the car at night when I am trying to buckle in a little one... You have found a jewel here with this drape it around your neck-I love it !~!
