    I just use a regular lamp with a terra cotta flower pot inverted over it. It works really well and it's cheap. lol

    I just use a powerful flashlight.. ie, your ordinary maglight may or may not cut it. I use a surefire.

    I use a regular flashlight..My eggs are all silkie eggs so they are easy to see through. I have heard that the LED lights work really well during candling..

    The 5W Surefire is about the best money can buy .... except ....
