Toolstation do have some eejit packers mind, my 500w bulb was busted, they sent me another one, entire unit that is, luckyly i had some spare 500watt halogen bulbs for these so ended up with 2 for £5

You need an extension cable with these to make full use of them.

They are great for working with cars at your house in the dark - and 500 Watts gives masses of light. They also take 300 and 150W bulbs too.

Also used it at a friends party outisde last summer - where it lit the entire back of the house as direct light from it was too dazzling.

Indeed, I had a roll of spare 3core power cable, cut off 15m, wired the plug and backbox myself, took 5mins with a screwdriver and some scissors

got 2 of these last time they where on offer. I use one as an outside light when we have bbq's at our caravan, have some outdoor sockets convenient located around the deck, but yeah otherwise you would need xtn lead! voted HOT

Anyone got any Tungsten Tipped Screws? Need them for a Zombie costume I'm making.

Good find Whizzkid. Voted hot.

great idea, anyone got the cat. number, search doesnt seem to find them...

In case there's one local ...for 49p more you can also get this from Screwfix for £6.99 ! :thumbsup:

£6.99 appears to be the normal price for this ...so perhaps the Woolies one isn't that much of a bargain.

Great price mate!

I think mine was about a tenner - but when I look at the picture here the guard at the front is wire - whereas on mine it is sold cast aluminium frame.

Here is a list of similar ones available...

Are these more like spotlights, with a beam, or will they light up a whole (small) garden?

It should light up a garden but dazzle you while doing so, as mentioned above, deflected lighting off these is more sensible/likely.

Yes i use screwfix lights like this for video film lighting. Works extremely well in fact and much cheaper than proper studio lighting :-)

i picked up one today for amateur still-life photography, cheers OP!
