Shedding some light...

...on the subject.  Remember the wonderful light I got the other day at Utrecht's???  Well it wouldn't stay put on my table.  I used the provided C-clamp and it would keep leaning forward -- enough to put a dent in my table!  It very nearly tipped over!!  So I went back to the store today to return it but I didn't have the box it came in so they wouldn't take it back -- arghhhh!  Really????

So the manager came out of his office to the register and after a bit of "discussion" we decided that I would try to use a couple of pieces of Bass wood to put on the top and bottom of my table with the clamp.  Thank goodness it worked (at least so far) and I can have the kind of illumination that I need to sew properly.  Yeah!

Yes the bass wood was free and seems to be doing the trick. I never would have expected that the box would be required for a return. Not mentioned on the receipt!

I'm not surprised at all that they want the packaging--they would need it to re-sell the product or even if it was defective & had to go back to the manufacturer. Glad the additional thickness helped hold the lamp better; it looks like an awesome lamp!!
