Every workshop needs flashlights and work lights. They're available in various types and sizes.

Some flashlights can be worn as a headband so that everywhere the user looks, there's light.

Pocket-sized flashlights clip to a belt or shirt pocket for convenient, hands-free lighting.

A flexible wire light can reach into tight spaces. This type of light is useful when you're looking for leaks or checking wiring inside a wall.
