Hi first instructable.
I will be showing you how to hallow out a light bulb and put an LED circuit on the inside.
It will work of 3 volts but you ca adjust the resistors to fit your needs.
Be creative with your bulb.
I am supportive of criticism as long as it is constructive so if you have any idea on
making this better shoot me a comment or message,.
THIS INSTRUCTABLE WILL REQUIRE YOU TO BREAK GLASS AND PLEASE BE CAREFUL.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU GET INJURED IN THE PROCESS OF THIS PROJECT
THINGS YOU WILL NEED:
Helping hands if you have any
3 LEDs (or more)
resistors 56 ohm (depending on your source voltage.)
Hot glue gun and sticks
Screw driver Philips or flat head
Spare wire ( preferably single strand.)
Needle nose pliers
LETS GET STARTED!!
Step 1: Removing the bottom
All light bulbs are basically the same to hollow out.
I used a 60 watt.
Heat up your soldering iron and melt the bottom of the light bulb.
You will notice that a small hole will appear unhook it from the metal tab.
Try and remove as much solder as possible.
After that grab the edge of the metal tab and pry it up a little with your finger nail.
Once it is up use needle nose pliers to grab it and pull it off.
Now that that is out of the way go ahead and grab your wire cutters or needle nose pliers and
squeeze the black part as hard as you can till it breaks or cracks.
After that gab a screw driver and try breaking it even more. Whatever works basically.
I waited till it cracked enough so i could go ahead with the pliers and twist it and break it off!!
