The goal of this project is create a shelf lamp that is simple to build , cheap and effective.
While encouraging people to build things , i have remember you to always put safety first when using tools and managing electrical devices , if in doubt ask for help but don'risk.
This is my first instructable, so i hope you'll enjoy , and remember to vote for the contest!
Now let's see what we need.
Step 1: Things you need
- an old brake caliper (a rear one is better as it has a shorter thread, if you find a front you'll need an M6 x 25mm bolt)
- an old bicycle metal headlight (the larger , the better)
- a spring (i used one from a saddle, lenght is unimportant as we'll cut it)
- an M6 Nyloc nut and washers
- a tin can or jar cap or metal sheet (not in picture)
- a GU10 led bulb (a 3w or 4w is fine)
- a GU10 socket with wires
- a power cord with a switch and plug (choose the right one for your country)
- a short piece of heat-shrink tubing (not in picture) or pvc electrical tape
- a zip tie (not in picture)
- 8 , 9 , 10 and 11 mm open spanners (you'll probably need only the 9 and 10)
- flat screwdriver
- pincers (to cut the spring)
- ruler or vernier caliper
- electrician scissors
Useful tools (will make your life easier):
- Bench vise
- Half round hand file
- Disc grinder or dremel with cutting and sanding tool
- soldering iron and solder
