for this assemblymust:
-5gsugru (sugru.com)
- Optical fiber (http://www.conrad.fr/ce/fr/product/183385/Cble-de-fibres-optiques-en-plastique/SHOP_AREA_17419&promotionareaSearchDetail=005 about 2$)
- Cheapled light
(about 2$)

thanks tothis montageyou canilluminateinverysmall placeswithout beingdazzledby a largelight!

Step 1:

nothing complicated:

electricpathmust be cutto keep onlylightingofthecentral LED

Step 2:

Nowwe mustprepare theoptical fiber:

-It can be easilycutwith a cutter
-Mustremovea piece ofprotectionlikeelectricwire(only1 mm)
-With a lighterheating, we obtaina goodsurface condition

Step 3:

I made asmall hole inthe plastic of thelampinsert thefiber
Ibonded withglue (cyanoacrylate)
I putsugrudirectly aboveto takethe fiber andto avoidtoilluminateaside
