Hi everyone , 
I have yet another project for you today , 
I'm going to show you how to build on an led light for your safety glasses ,
also I'm going to show you how to make the button cell battery box / holder for it , 

NOTE , in this project we will be dealing with sharp knifes - hot solder and epoxy glue ,
so please be careful , 
I will not be held responsible  for any injuries that may happen , 
please do not let children use epoxy  , and try to use gloves when using it , this stuff will dry quick and won't come off easily , 

with that said lets get started ,
