i have a lot of old stuff like me - there are four fixtures with 150 watt incandescent spots at the roof line of my work bench , only run when in use - separate switch from general lighting that has LEDs ,

I also use LED lighting and the Inline Fabrication Light kit for my press.  (Ok I'll admit it, you Dillion guys make me Blue with envy :) )

I mounted one 4 ft. LED light over the bench in my no-window garage. It lights up the bench great and covers the entire garage (very small one car). Momma can do laundry and the shelves across the bay are lit pretty well, too. This light can be ganged with additional lights up to 4 or 5 with each light plugging into the other. I think this was $50 or less at Home Depot.

My other great purchase was a tower electric heater. What a concept! I'm embarrassed to say it took so long to find something so practical.

I have a 48" double T8 tube fixture and 32 watt bulbs with a 5600 kelvin temp. bright white light. 

90% of the problem with florescent lights is the owner. they don't spend good money on good bulbs. The bulb mentioned above is $10-$12 each

Oh, btw, I bought the Inline light for my press, but it didn't give me the light in my case like I wanted. I ended up buying a UFO light that works awesome. 

I really like the Ergo Roller Handle from Inline though, so no losses, only gains.

That’s a lot of fancy gear. I’m old school. A hunk of wood dipped in pitch burning in a bracket on the other side of the room works just fine. :wacko:

Florescent shop fixtures placed as needed on the ceiling.  LED on my press tool head.

No reason to be "blue" you have a nice setup and it looks more organized than mine

I have a 4 ft 3 tube led  over the bench in the center of the room and a 3 bulb track light unit on either side of it to allow highlighting specific areas

In the basement, variety of hobbies and projects ongoing...InlineFabrication lights on Dillon and Lee presses, 8' fluorescent with Daylight bulbs, recessed lights with LED daylight bulbs, and different sets of head lamps (wide beam, spotlight with adjustable beam, varying degree of brightness). All are on individual switches or plugins, I can light up all or sections.

LED 4 foot strip.  Bright, cheap and no chance of a bulb getting broken and igniting anything.

+1 on Led Strip

Sedalia Dave hit the nail on the head. The higher the CRI (color rendering index) the brighter the lamp. I have a 4' 2 lp fluorescent shop light over my bench with 5k tubes and it gives me plenty of light.
