Been using the lathe with the light where it is. Seems to work for me so far. I'll have more lights hanging behind me so the dark in front of the lathe won't be there. That picture was with that light being the only light source in 3000 sqf.

The insulation up high will not be covered.

Lots of light is good.

Make you a bracket of some kind to hold the chuck key.

I built a rotating tool holder rack that sits on the head stock cover.
On top of it I keep my "long"tooling such as big boring bars and boxed things like my bigger live centers.
