First thing you'll want to do is gather the tools and supplies for the project:
-Electric Drill/Drill Press
-Mini Maglite Flashlight
-SuperBright 5mm LED*
*I went to Radioshack and got a 5mm 2600 mcd SuperBright blue LED (catalog number 276-316
. I really don't like going to Radioshack because they mark everything up so much ($4.49 for the LED at Radioshack, compared to $0.33 for a similar one from Jameco), but if I need something quick or want to browse, it's okay.
