Step 1: Stuff You Need
1. set of risers to modify
2. simple switch
3. 2 high intensity wide angle leds
4. 2 small calculator sized batteries
5. dremel with small sanding bit.
6.soldering gun and solder
7. hot glue gun
8. some small section of shipping foam
you can "borrow" some of these things like the leds batteries and switches from electronics around your house.
Step 2: DESTRUCTION MODE.
sector nine risers are what i used they have a good central location for batteries.
make sure you are carving out the correct side for which way you want the leds to face.
one of my wires ran on under side of this picture...
and dont forget to take your time.
Step 3: Led Circuit
any way you need to solder leds together, the positive from one should be connected to the negative of the second. for more information if you are confused just click here other than that this is a simple step.
notes: make sure your connections are strong. this will experience a lot of vibrations so make certain your connections are solid.
take your time just cause there arent lots of pictures doesnt mean this is a quick step... simple not quick.
you will notice i started using a different switch later in the pictures this is because i broke the two in the first pictures (go me!) trying to rush...
some use resistors, i didnt... still works fine.
Step 4: Show That Hot Glue Gun Some Lovin...
i covered the back of the leds in hot glue so if i go threw a puddle of water and it somehow gets wet it wont short out the circuit... i suggest you do the same... hot glue the switch in if theres any wiggle room.
batteries are tricky. first i hot glues the wires to the correct side of each battery. then i taped the batteries together then i hot glued two little pieces of foam to one side to ensure pressure against both batteries...
Step 5: Assembly and in Closing
other than that youre done! test it out...
prob not the best idea for super secret sessions in the middle of the night since it makes you super visable. and easily spotted
mine are really bright pictures dont do it justice
instructions would be the same for front lights i would just use three white leds instead
thanks for checkin out my first instructable!!!
