Tried a few things for shop lighting, compact CFL's weren't too bad, but power surges kept
So, moved on to LED. These are 100w equivalent, topped with 30 quart salad mixing bowls.
I thought the SS would reflect well, and it did, but only in a straight down pattern. Painting
them bright white seems to be a good compromise.
Not too much light wasted towards the ceiling, and visability in the welding area is good.
Rest of the shop will get the same, just waiting for a cheap deal on the bowls again. Bought
all they had the last time.
The LED's have proven to be more robust, and no failures----yet
