Step 15: Make the support yoke

The support yoke is shaped like a big fat tuning fork. The design is roughly octagonal with the top part chopped out. Download yoke templates from dadcando's Batman project or draw up your own easily.

Measure the width of your lamp with its extra side pieces and just make sure that it is a sung fit in the yoke. I used foam core for the yoke, but you could use much nice materials. Two bits of card glued together, thin plastic or thin wood for example.

Cut the bottom prong so that it fits into the hole in the top of the drinks bottle.

spray or paint both the yoke and the base, black and then stick them together using hot melt or any other quick setting glue
That's badass
Could this be possibly upscaled on a rotating fan keep the motor function of the fan and then remove the rest to replace it with a brighter light say inside a coffe can or the like?
It's amazing!!
Hi,<br>I would like to thank you deeply for this nice little project of yours, which was just what I was looking for, for my Batman-ized Scalextric slot car track. I made some tiny variations when I built mine: skipped the aluminum background of the lamp, because I did not want the blurry effect (more similar to the movie, I know) and used a pre-built base, which I got from a LED head-lamp that I bought for 3 euros. Incidentally, this base has a batt-ish shape and also gives me the chance to rotate the signal quite easily. Finally, I took the liberty to glue some black paper inside the cap and also made the bat covered with a piece of black darkening fabric. That's because I like the almost completely-black effect that you see when the signal is off.<br>Anyway, here's some pictures of the signal and track and thank you again for your creativity!<br>Luigi (Rome, Italy)
Thanks for your kind words, but I can't see your pictures, which after that great explanation I am very much looking forward to seeing.
Oops, sorry! Maybe they were too big. I just resized them and hopefully, here they are:
<p>no offense but your handle for the light is better than his wat did u use</p>
Oh, I forgot: I also replace the LED in your original project with a 4.8V mini-lamp. <br>Thanks again for your inspiration, you rock!<br>Luigi
<p>instead of using the USB light could you use a USB and a led and just solder the wires from the led to the USB?</p>
useful idea using your idea we can make logo projection.i am going to do that in my next instructable. thanks for the idea.
I'm planning on making this for my boyfriend this weekend so I'm thrilled to start the project! Thank you for sharing this!

thank you!
black wire isnt ground, as usb doesnt have grounding. pin 4 is negative, and pin 1 is posotive
Ground is another interchangeably used term for the negative wire
Ur wrong, cuz there is ground and the power supply . check out http://www.instructables.com/image/FZN6CJYFMMD5IFI/USB-Preparation.jpg
oh ok.
you have to sell them, they are very good!!!<br>
Surely, correct me if I'm wrong, you could just have drilled a larger hole at the bottom of the cap and just threaded the light through and then filled the hole in with a putty of sorts instead of cutting it up?
you could but the metal tube from the book light is too strong and springy and the batman light won't stand up properly because it is so light.
now that...is cool
God, this is so awesome, I can't bear it
i can't find any bottles in my house with that transparent cap D:
I used a piece of polystyrene from an office dumpster. Found materials FTW!
I used one of those translucent film canisters. This is awesome
wow, that's pimp; too bad i used up the cheap usb cable i bought for the xbox controller to usb.<br><br>Respect
Do I really have to join to get the batman template, and mounting yoke????
Joining has no cost. You just need to have an email, and its very easy!
Sorry it used to be free about 2 years ago, now there is a &pound;10 joining charge and that lasts forever or a &pound;0.95 per project download cost.
imma use this one: http://www.photoshopstar.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/batman-logo.jpg
Good idea
Thing is, I spent about 3 years building up dadcando and designing things on their and the cost of running it was too much, so I decided to charge a small fee to join or 95p to download a single project. The revenue from this hasn't aded up to the cost of creating the site just yet, but the weekly money that comes in covers running the site and keeping it up there. ^_^ There's loads more on dadcando than just this template!
That is sssoooo awesome.
thank you, glad you like it<br>
Fantastic! This ible definitely deserves the number of comments it's getting.<br><br>However, doesn't Batman get pee'd off about being called round every time you turn your computer on?
yeah, but I always make him a cup of tea and that seems fine!
That is way too cute. I love it!
Actually it does.. I was going to register at that dadcando site thingy, to get the template. After the registration they asked for me to choose which payment method, similar to this sites' one. Now, I have to ask my sister to draw it.. Would be simplier to just print it for free..<br><br>
any other alternative for cork, i used plactiscine
