Just made one from an old Argos Challenge drill.

No need to buy a bulb holder a couple of 5 amp chocolate block connectors fasten straight onto the bulb pins.
Found the 12v NiCads were shot so ended up wiring it to a discarded 12volt stairlift battery with about three and a half metres of flex.

Just got a standard 12v 35watt bulb at the moment to try it, but wondering if the cost of nearly 20.00 to get the proper bulb worth it ?
