I like to build thing's from salvaged part's which often include led's,switches , resistor's , capacitor's ,etc. etc. The problem i often face with those LED's is most of them are not working,so i decided to build a portable LED Tester.After thinking alot on what material should be used i decided to give it a try with plexiglass (coz i got a scrap piece of it for free)
Step 1: Material's Required
-3v Li-ion battery
-battery holder (i salvaged mine from a motherboard)
For construction of the casing
-Permanent Marker (for marking,not necessary to use permanent marker)
-Files(for shaping the plexiglass)
-Xacto / Scalpel
Most of my material's are taken from here and there,reusing them to decrease the cost of the build
i know the pic's suck & are blurry but i badly need a good camera :( .My parent's won't agree to buy one ,they keep telling it is not required.
Step 2: Plexiglass casing
If you are using a hacksaw then go with 25-30 strokes per minute,try and maintain a straight cut.
After you are done with cutting file off the rough edges.
The Dimensions i took were:- 5cm x 3.5cm & the thickness of the plexiglass was 5mm
Glue all the side pieces
