"How to make a stand light:"

From: Alan Buchanan

First, take an old extention cord that has been damaged on one end,cut the bad end off. Second,take a scrap piece of conduit making a base square or round ( square makes a better base than round) leaving 4 to 5 feet sticking up in the middle . take a 300 watt halogon flood light ( wal-mart has these for about $7.00 ) use a set screw connector and a rigid coupling both 1/2" to attach the light too. Then. push cord in the conduit leaving the male end out at the bottom. make joints using butt connectors ,screw light to coupling , plug in, and let there be light . Perfect for when you have no temporary lights at the job sight.
