Default UFO light for reloading press

I installed one on my Lee 4 hole turret press and WOW is it bright! You could operate the press in the dark! Very happy with it. The light bar is LED and the system has an off/on switch.

I added a LED strip light to my press a few years ago.

It's there to shine light into the cartridge case in the step after powder is dropped in and prior to bullet insertion. That way I 100% visually inspect the powder level.

Here's a demo video:

Last year I added a finished cartridge counter. It uses a magnetic reed switch that is actuated by the bullet in a completed cartridge at the taper crimp stage for pistol cartridges like the 9mm and .45acp:

The aliens are behind LED lighting??? I knew it!!! I've been watching the last year's America Cup sailing competition, and it's Alien technology!!!

Nobody human ever envisioned sailboats that don't even touch the water! They ride on foils off downreaching skegs. Now you say they revealed LED technology too! I'll bet they are behind the Navy's railgun and the new X-ray technology that can actually see through lead!

I'll bet that's where Bezos and Musk got their break-through technology from! Mulder was right all along!!!
