This is what I found to be the cheapest way to go especially  if and when you ever have to replace a bulb.IMG_9882.JPG.6e51d188d947c77b71e676b442dc8536.JPG

 

I bought a case of these receptacles and mounted them on a 2x4. The ceramic bases are cheaper than the two wire hanging typeIMG_9880.JPG.ebdda68849b84edd0ad8fe68e592ec51.JPG

Or for the really lazy guys, these fixtures from bathroom remodels are showing up at garage sales for a buck or so without the bulbs then put the leds back in..

Do I see some lazy soles here or is this something special that takes lots of learning to put in a light bulb....?

 

Those ceramic bases were 1.09 each when I ordered 40 at a time.

I like the way you think!  You jes solved a problem fer this olredneck!

Many thanks, really. What's out ther now is a plain old plywood ceiling w/ one light bulb in center of a spacious 2 car garage.

With your idea I'll have all light I need complements of power from that 1 light w/screw in receptacle, I'll use 300wat bulbs, that wont require 3 -4

& one convenient switch.

THANKS PATCH

Yours is kinda things I put on, hoping to actually help folks.

Buck what ever you use make it LED bulbs. Google led bulbs and see how little electricity is used compared with all the rest of the bulbs on the market......Led is the only way to go even for a well off gent like yourself.. No need to let go of that money if you don't have to......They make those caskets with cubby holes all around the body so they can stuff that money in with you as they lower you down.......

 

You don't think after you are dead any of your friends would take a few hundreds if no one was looking do you????? Loyal friends would not even think of doing that????????

Loyal friends were tossing wads of cash into the casket, as was the custom. The lawyer friend waited till everyone had tossed their offering in. He took the cash and tossed in a check.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
