Affordable, Small, Bright, Magnetic, LED light

I you want an inexpensive 6 watt LED light that provides good bright light, has a magnetic base that sticks fast to even thin vertical sheet metal, flexible gooseneck, and for less than 12 dollars, look at this one.

I have three; one on a drill press, and two on my bandsaw (one positioned below the table to adjust guides and bearings and check wheels and tracking).

Small enough to not be in the way, yet bright enough to work nearly anywhere in the shop.

Anyone know of a source for that kind of gooseneck tubing?

I bought a bunch of these:

Thanks, I should have been more specific, just the gooseneck tubing in, say, 10' or 20' lengths, various diameters/stiffness.

you should post that question in a new thread with your
specific needs along with what the final project would be used for
in order to obtain the best and most accurate responses.
also some drawings, images, or photos would be of great assistance.

Where would you get ends for cut lengths if they were even sold The threaded ends are crimped on with special tooling
