Thanks for letting me know that worked out.  I also have a 17" bandsaw and put mine on the top wheel cover.

I do have the shorter ones on my lathe and sander. they work great also, but have less LEDs

Ordered a three pack.  One for the bandsaw, one for the leatherwork bench, one for the knife bench.

The magnet is powerful - the light never moves unless I want it to.

This is the way to go. LED bulbs keeps the heat at bay.  I did similarly on my drill press.

Leaned into one of those with an incandescent once. Nice red spot on my forehead.
