    Glare from your "bendable bright light"? Tip

    I'm very sensitive to the glare of this little light and didn't like the tight focus of the beam. Tip: unscrew the plastic lens from the end of it! Wider light, absolutely nice and bright, no glare!

    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Thank you for the tip. Bright light hurts my eyes and I can't use anything with a glare.

    Now if there was a way to take the "brightness" off my tweezers and make them more "grippable" at the same time! Maybe an acid bath?

    I gave up the tweezers in favor of black hemostats. Hemostats have lots better grip than tweezers. I got mine from a scissor dealer at a quilt show.

    For the tweezers, how about wrapping the handle with the medical self adhesive wrap...gives grip and would cover enough of the metal to reduce any glare!
