Update to review below - Now I am happy with this light!

Comments about Studio Designs Swing Arm Lamp:
My review below referred to attaching this lamp to the SIDE of the angled drafting table which made it impossible to position the swing arm over the table. However, when attached to the TOP of the table it worked fine and is just what I needed at a very low price. My old lamp in a similar style attached to the side with no problem and I had assumed this one would, too but it will not work that way on an angled drafting table. But for a level table or if you can position it at the top of an angled table it works fine.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

just what I needed
I have two lamps on my drawing table ~ this one, with a full spectrum bulb for drawing in color, and a magnifying lamp for close-up detailed work.This one, I have to say, is perfect for my needs. It is easily adjustable so that I can move it about to any position I need and it holds its position well, with now falling or slipping.I would highly recommend this lamp.
I have several of these

I use these lamps on my drawing table, very versatile, easy to reposition, long reach, good for 100W daylight bulbs and the newer LED equivalents.
Unstable on a drafting table
This lamp is completely unstable on a somewhat slanted drafting table. There should be a disclaimer in the description that says this lamp can be used ONLY on level tables. Also the clamp is of poor quality plastic and will break eventually like the last one I got from Blick did after several years. I had thought this clamp was metal and not plastic. I would happily pay more for a decent drafting table lamp but this sounded fine based on the description which says it attaches "to almost any art table"; I thought it was safe to assume that included a drafting table but every time I tried to use it, it swings around and hits me in the face because there is no way to tighten the arm of the lamp after you insert it in the clamp. To top it all off one of the tubes of watercolor paint in the same order was punctured getting deep blue paint on everything. I will contact Customer Service on the next business day. One of the reasons I always shop at Blick for art supplies is their excellent customer service and hopefully they will agree to pay the return postage. I would NOT have ordered this if the description had specified that it can attach ONLY to perfectly level art tables.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

These 5 lights are just the last 5 of 20 lights I have purchased for my work shop and teaching studio. Obviously, I am very pleased.

This light is used with a daylight bulb to overhang a light tent for photographing hand stamped greeting cards. The lamp stays in position once set, and the cord is an adequate length. The quality is better than I expected for the price. Since this is only used two - three times a week, and not daily, I did not want to spend and arm and leg. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Worth the Money
from Bronx, NY
The Lamp's articulation really helps when working with such a wide desk. I use it for whenever I am painting in the evening. The light never gets too hot, so you never have to worry about accidentally burning yourself. One thing i can say is that the base is a little tedious to attach, but other than that this lamp works like a charm.

If your table is flat, this lamp works well. If you pick it up to use in conjunction with a drafting table, you will be disappointed. No amount of modification or tightening to the screws or knobs at the hinges can get enough tension in them to prevent it from sagging under the weight of the lamp head itself.Additionally, there is no way to tighten the joint between the clamp and the base of the lamp - it simply slides in. Thus, on an angled table, it always orients itself with the lamp at the lowest point. Pretty frustrating.
Merchant response: We're sorry that this lamp isn't positioning as you need it to, and we'd like to work with you to make sure you have a lamp that will meet your needs. A member of our Customer Care Team will be in touch to further assist you.
