Ring Light for Helping Hands

I wish I had one of these, it’d be great for video! Instructables user cold_steel writes:

This is probably one of the most used tools in my workshop, the “extra hands”. It is the ultimate tool for soldering and prying in the very small range. But over time I found that I do not have enough light on my work when using this tool. Actually all the benefits you would expect from having a magnifying glass for easy reach are over shadowed by the shadow cast by the rim. And honestly I haven’t managed to position my desk lamp in such a way that I was able to conveniently light my tiny work. So I decided it is time for some upgrades.

As usual you will find all G-code and other files included so you can reproduce this easy on your own CNC machine.
