The 100W Moffatt 95021 incandescent/halogen task lamp comes with a 24" flex arm, and stands on a magnetic base for installation on metal surfaces. The task lamp accommodates standard 100W A19 incandescent or halogen light bulbs (sold separately). The lamp has a 24" gooseneck-style flex arm that allows vertical and lateral bending, and is made of durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC) for resistance to cleaning chemicals and protection from grease and oil in industrial applications. For optimal work visibility, the task lamp's shade swivels up to 270 degrees on top of the flex arm. A conical anodized aluminum reflector inside the shade also helps pool and focus the light beam. The 5-1/2" high lamp shade measures 4-1/2" in diameter, and it has a double-wall polycarbonate construction that keeps the outer surface from becoming hot to touch. An aluminum heat sink absorbs any excess heat produced by the task lamp to prevent the toggle switch on the back of the shade from overheating.
A 3"-diameter magnetic base with 100-lb. pull force helps securely mount the lamp on metal counters or surfaces. The task lamp comes with a 6' stranded junior thermoplastic, oil rated (SJTO)-3 type cord with a three-prong grounded plug for connecting to electrical outlets. The lamp meets Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standards for quality assurance. The task lamp is commonly used in workshops, factories, laboratories, kitchens, and offices, among other work environments.
Task lamps provide direct lighting to a specific space for better visibility. Task lamps often have an adjustable arm that bends or hinges to move up and down and, in many cases, can also move laterally to positions the light beam optimally. Task lamps are commonly used in computing, construction, dental, laboratory, and medical applications, among others.
Moffatt Products manufactures task lamps, magnifiers, safety shields, and gooseneck flexible arms. The company, founded in 1954, is headquartered in Watertown, SD.

I bought it to use at my VB36 lathe and got the model with the magnetic base. It arrived as expected and in good condition, etc. I also installed a 27W LED lamp which is the equivalent of about a 150 watt bulb but without the heat of incandescent. The lamp is rated at 100 W but they refer to a traditional 100 W incandescent, which produces a ton of heat. So anyway, the lamp is pretty good overall but a few thougths on why the 4- stars instead of 5.
The switch is mounted on the back of the housing and is large and easy to see / use.
The cord is reasonably long.
The magnet works pretty well in most conditions
The arm is flexible and is 24" long
The arm is extremely stiff and you can't just adjust on the fly if you need to. It's a two-handed task
When adjusting the arm, the magnet won't hold unless you are using the aforementioned 2 hands
The housing is plastic. Perhaps some type of high-impact product, but just seems flimsy and I'd prefer metal
It's pricey for what it is.
Still, it's a great workhorse lamp for my needs and if there was one with a 30+ inch arm I'd grab it. I just question its long-term durability in a workshop environment. And they are heavily targeted at that market so I just think that the build quality should be a tad better.
Thank you for the review and your purchase, glad to hear it is working for your needs. The 100 Watt rating is the Maximum Capacity for the UL listing the lamp carries. Many of the new and developing LED bulb options are far below that 100 watt rating. Typically only Incandescent Rough Service or Halogen options reach into those 100 Watt ratings anymore. The Flex Arm is stiff, the last think we want to see is a droopy arm that will not hold position while in use on equipment, you are right, it does take a little extra effort to bend. The Shade is actually constructed of a Polycarbonate material and it is quite durable. We opted for that design as the steel housings are easily dented, tend to loose their nice finish and collect too much heat. Thank you for your thoughtful critique and your purchase!

I can buy some $20 piece of junk reading lamp that will hold up better than this thing.
I put it on the cast iron base of a die filing machine and had zero movement from the magnetic base even though I really tried. The only "problem" was getting the magnet loose when I decided to place it on a different position on the machine.
I've used other, very expensive, machine lights and in terms of quality and function, it's very comparable. A very fair price.
Second, the can or shade, looks like painted metal but is plastic and does not hold up in a shop environment with much heat.
Third the switch, located on the back of the bulb did not turn off after the plastic shade warped.
