so when I lived with my parents all I had was a pathetic setup of a single stage press bolted to an old TV stand that had a top work surface of 15.5" X 29.5"

I have since moved out and would like to upgrade but I am in an apartment so that keeps me from having anything amazing.

I have ordered one of these http://www.walmart.com/ip/Stack-On-66-Steel-Workbench/14958187?action=product_interest&action_type=image&placement_id=irs_top&strategy=PWVAV&visitor_id=53450712198&category=0%3A1072864%3A1031899%3A1066925%3A1067608%3A1­067735&client_guid=67401ca1-cea2-4ed6-8708-f942403e357d&config_id=2&parent_item_id=14958171&guid=f0e65174-2612-4985-b28e-5d29982df8e7&bucket_id=000&findingMethod=p13n
I have gotten the lee mounting plate and blocks to bolt to it. I'm considering some sort of pegboard I can attach to the wall above it without making too many holes. I will put a cabinet or toolbox of some sort under it to hold extra gear...

the thing I really can't figure out is lighting. I would like to use a shop light, but I'd really like to refrain from attaching anything to the ceiling so either something that can be bolted to the wall or bench...
anyone have a similar setup for lighting?

As an apt./condo dweller myself my bench is 2'X4', I purchased an Alvin CL-1775 I believe is the model in March through Amazon, a little pricey at $90.00 but, from reading reviews of lighter duty
models I applied the "buy once, cry once" mantra and am more than satisfied. I recommend it whole heartedly.
