For those that arent into electrics just find a lamp that can hold a MR16 bulb with the correct transformer for the bulb. I quite like this - a light for the pond that is submersible! about £25 quid - sure I can find it cheaper

No probs mate, I realised I wasn't specific enough about where to find the post in the original thread so when I was on the laptop I hoked it out and fired it up on here in case you managed to find one (which somehow you did!), and seeing your latest post re the distance vs petrol cost you are dead right, better just get the £19.99 one, it looks similar to the 3M on in colouring too!

Thanks Jagtech for the info re the contents of the holder packs from screwfix - I wouldn't think to check before leaving then find out when I get home and get really ****ed off! Don't worry though it's not just the Screwfixs in the dodgy areas (are there any that aren't?!), they are all like that TBH, staff who don't give a damn and a no quibble returns policy = lots of stock issues.

I never managed to get to Screwfix today, got waylayed at Halfords umming and ahhing over the 3 for 2 offer and what to get instead. Will try to get to screwfix tomorrow instead.

yeah i like the look of the greyish coloured one, looks more like a certain colour matcher/swirl finder we can't name for legal reasons

for those that have built one from the cheaper drill, is it awkward to change the bulb? If it sits behind the lip but the bulb holder is glued in place i'm wondering if it wont crack in time. Currently looking at ways to hold the bulb in place so the lampholder will just push on the back. As i'm putting a fan in there's not much room for bracing.

was gonna say a piece of styrofoam shaped to the drill case with a grove for the holder... but then the fan would be pointless
