From Eric: I wanted to take over my wife’s blog today because this is a way cool gift! I can be hard to please sometimes, just ask my wife Lynne. But this is a home run gift for any guy (or girl) into useful gadgets. It’s an all-purpose light with three adjustable magnetic legs. The manufacturer “Joby” is known for a similar product the Gorillapod, a flexible tripod for cameras. But I like this new Gorillatorch, an adjustable and flexible tripod flashlight that my brother- and sister in-law gave me for Christmas. What is great about this gift is that it has three articulating legs which can be bent into endless positions. You can attach this light to any shaped object, like a pole or tree. And, the three legs also have a powerful magnet on the bottom of each foot. I’ve long-needed extra directional light for seeing what I’m cutting on my band saw. I stuck the Gorillatorch to the side of my band saw and my problem was solved. The magnets worked so well that the light doesn’t even shake when the band saw is running. The light is bright when fully on and adjusts down to a very soft light. (takes 3 double A batteries). I’m particular about gadgets and tools for my workshop so I thought I’d let people know when I really like a product since so many times I’ve bought something and it was crap! Hope to post other items I recommend in the future!
Thanks Eric! If you’re recommending this than it must be good since you are so picky! I might just give one of these in my next year’s “Yankee Swap.”
*Notes: Eric was not paid to write this review. He simply just likes this product and wanted to spread the word. If you are interested in this item, I made it really easy for you! Below is a link to Amazon (or click here) where I’ve seen it the cheapest and eligible for their free super saver shipping! (I’m also a big fan of Amazon where I buy almost everything, even our favorite cereal!)
