First of the flouresent lights mounted

November 12th, 2009 Comments off

Some of our members picked up five flouresent light fixtures that would normally mount under a shelf in a cubical at the University of Cincinnati surplus sale.  I was down at the hive tonight and decided to look into how we might mount them on the workbench and have worked out what seems to be a good method.

First take the bulb out, then drill out the rivets that hold the light fixture to the case of the light.  Then use the holes left by the removed rivets for screws.  The end result looks fairly nice and seems pretty sturdy.

Now… just need to mount the remaining four light fixtures.
