I have a stand with halogen lights on it already, I'm looking more at overhead lights, permanent stuff.
I would suggest getting several good fluorescent light sets and getting some of the better hand held lights for close inspections. The Brinkmann Maxfire Dual Xenon Swirl Finder Spotlight
and Brinkmann TuffMax Dual LED Pivot Spotlight
are what I use afterward to ensure I'm getting the results I need.
Hope this helps!
