  • Water Valve Light Switch for a Pipe Lamp

    Hi Guys (and possibly Girls) I like the idea of using a plumbing shut-off valve to create a switch for a project involving piping, however if I may inject a note or two of caution into the mixture The first is that there seems to be a trend in the posts where there is a lack of the basics of electrical wiring, I am not judging anyone for not knowing the construction of circuits but I would advise that anyone who is unsure of how these circuits work should seek advice from someone who does, electricity is not something which should be experimented with without a basic knowledge of how it behaves.The second is that whenever an electrical circuit is being constructed using any copper/Brass/metal tubing or component parts they need to be earthed to ensure that if the insulation on any elect...see more »Hi Guys (and possibly Girls) I like the idea of using a plumbing shut-off valve to create a switch for a project involving piping, however if I may inject a note or two of caution into the mixture The first is that there seems to be a trend in the posts where there is a lack of the basics of electrical wiring, I am not judging anyone for not knowing the construction of circuits but I would advise that anyone who is unsure of how these circuits work should seek advice from someone who does, electricity is not something which should be experimented with without a basic knowledge of how it behaves.The second is that whenever an electrical circuit is being constructed using any copper/Brass/metal tubing or component parts they need to be earthed to ensure that if the insulation on any electrical component or wire fails and comes in contact with a metal component part the earth protection will prevent or reduce the danger of receiving an electrical shock or burn. Please be carefull and if in doubt, ask.By the way, I think the instruction of the construction is first class.
