Talking wanted: fluoresent folding pit lamp

Can't seem to find any info on where to buy one of those folding fluoresent pit lamps. I saw one online, but link is dead now.

Anyone with one for sale, or link to where I can find one? Much appreciated!
Ken

Bought mine at Office Depot, but Staples or Office Max should have them also.. about 30-40 bucks.

Default found one....

Thanks guys....I found one.

I actually bought one of the $10 ones at Walmart and then checked Office Depot to see the OttLight. After seeing the quality of the light compared to my current halogen lamp ($10 IKEA) and the newly found Walmart special..........I promptly plopped down the $50 for the OttLight and returned the other one to Walmart. The quality of light, and brightness is very different between these $10 and $50 units.

Now....I know many will think that is ridiculous, but remember that this comes from someone who spends thousands on 1/10 scale car and boat gear. For the time I spent at my bench in hobby room and in our not so well lit track....the extra money is worth it too me. I guess I appreciate quality gear and am willing to pay for it(which is why I have a $300 charger hooked up to a $150 power supply charging $80 batteries....LOL).

Thanks again for the guidance....this is one splurge purchase I won't regret.

Ken
