Step 1: Items and Tools
Drop onto Ebay and get hold of a pack of infrared LEDs ( about one pound ninety for 100) - size 5mm.
Call into your local POUND WORLD shop and pick up two of the head torches - one pound each - two IR lamps for about four pounds, cool or what.
Needle nose/tapered pliers.
Small cross head screw driver.
Scrap wire - about 300mm.
Step 2: Step 1
Gently remove the standard LED array and unsolder the two power wires.
Keep the LEDs on the board as they can be used for another project - all in place and just the power wires to be re soldered if needed.,
Step 3: Step 2
Put one aside as it will be going into the middle position.
Looking at an LED you will see inside the is a large wedge side and a small wedge side.
Take four LEDs and bend the connectors into a L shape.
Take another four but using the inside view of the LEDs, bend them in the opposite direction.
Now bend all of the LED connectors outwards, forming a kind of offset T - (it's easier to look at the photos).
Step 4: Step 3
You can use the power pack to test the LEDs if ya need.
No need to solder yet.
Step 5: Step 4
Make up three more sets and drop them into the reflector
Step 6: Step 5
Ok, take the connectors on the inner ring and bend them towards the LEDs on their left and right, making a solid, unbroken ring and solder the cross over points
Step 7: Step 6
Cut a piece of spare wire into a length long enough to run all around the outer ring, with some left over and remove the insulation.
Using one of the hooks secure one end of the wire and solder.
Run the wire around the outer edge till it gets to the start, using the hooks to secure as you go round, solder all points.
Step 8: Step 7
Take the last LED and after checking the polarity, drop it into the center hole, connect it into the circuit at any point - check it works too
Step 9: Step 8
When your done grab your IR camera and go get some spooks on screen.
