Last week I posted a video about modifying your hardware store work lights to run cooler and be more compact. That mod involved removing the glass from the work light so heat could escape. A viewer pointed out that the glass functions as a protection against an exploding bulb, and what I had now was very unsafe. I had no intention of making something dangerous, so I am quickly responding with this video that details how to insert a safety screen where the glass once was.
Now your light will still run cooler, but you have the added precaution of a barrier between you and any bulb popping that might occur. Safety is very important on any set and I would never want anyone to be hurt by anything they learned to do on this blog.
