    LED "Vacuum" Tubes

    You could also use test tubes. You will have to cut them. Check instructables on how to cut bottles.

    I think this is a great idea to have decorative tubes lighted up. To add to the discussion if you search eBay for "dollhouse glass domes" you will find glass tubes that you could use to make it look more real.

  • Disassembling a CD/DVD reader and reusing its parts

    I am happy people take the time to share on instructables. To pick on obvious and silly things and relate it to your frustrations at your call center is unwarranted. If I were to pick on your grammar or spelling, there is nothing like "thingy" or "un-educate" or "you'd" or I'd. For all you know the next president might get his grammar lessons from your post, imagine that.

    It would be nice to post instructions in a instructables site. If the content is good people dont care for grammar or spelling. Maybe "Instructables" dont translate well in sites like Babelfish or Worldlingo.

  • Disassembling a CD/DVD reader and reusing its parts

    The only time I have come across a motor that is 2 wires and works like a stepper (if one can call it stepper motor) is the motors inside clocks. These motors just have a round magnet and a coil. The coil needs to be reversed for every pulse and the motor spin 1/4-1/2 turn for every pulse with very little torque.

    The ones that use the DC motors usually have a encoder. The encoder here looks like it is in front of the motor, the slotted wheel with a IR sensor.
