I need help wiring a 12VDC SPST lighted on-off rocker switch.? Answered

I want to install a 12VDV SPST lighted on-off rocker switch to turn some lights on and off on my model railroad. The switch has three terminals and one is marked "light". I am going to use a 12VDC (wall wart) adapter as the power source. How and where do I attach the wires correctly? Obviously, one terminal is positive and one is negative but what do I attach to the "light" terminal?

Has anyone put battery operated mini LED spotlights in an acrylic display case?

I was  given  a Bradford Mint 1:24 scale 1966 Mustang convertible model car for my birthday. I want to display the car in a lighted acrylic 10" cube and a 3" base. I am asking the Instructables community for their help, as I have never undertaken a project like this before.To begin the car measures about 8" Lx 4" W x roughly 4" H. Now, here are my three questions. First, would an AA battery power source run a switch plus 4 LED violet spotlights? Second, what can I use to attach the LED's to the base? And is there a way to harness the LED light to only highlight a specific point on the model car ? I have never undertaken anything like this before. And although I can picture the look I'd like to achieve in my head; I'm very much in the dark about a lot of the details needed to get the job done.Any help on any one or all four of my questions would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you, Cathy

Where can I get a "Non-Momentary" Lighted button switch? Answered

I'm working on a project which requires a lighted button switch. I need the light on the switch to turn on when the button is pressed and stay on after the button is released. Then I need it to turn back off when the button is pressed and released a second time. I bought a lighted button switch only to find out that it can only be constantly on or only on when the button is held down (or off depending on how you wire it). This will not do for my project. Does anyone know where I can get what I need or if there is a way to tinker with the switch I have and make it do what I want?

How do I add on fiber optic bundles to the end of a large single Fiber optic strand/LED?

I would like to create a lighted and animated cuttle fish sculpture and I want to know how I would be able to get the most amount of small single dots of light from a single LED. The LEDs will be individually animated in the belly of the beast and light patterns will appear on the surface...

A sport coat that has hundreds of little lights sewn into it.

I once saw a local musician play the guitar and sing in a small venue. For one song, they dimmed the lights on the stage almost completely, and the sport coat he was wearing suddenly "switched on" and he had hundreds of tiny little light beads sewn into the jacket that you could not see before. They were not string lights, like for a Christmas tree. They seemed to be much more LED like, and bright, and most of all, small to the point of being invisible.  I hate to be a copy cat... but I want to make a jacket like this too. I do not care if it is portable. i.e. if I have to plug it in, that's fine. Anyone have any ideas for where I might start?

Colored Lights- How do colored led lights work and what do they emit?

I'm doing an experiment by growing plants under colored led lights, so do led lights emit specifically one color. For example does a red led light emit only wavelengths of light that are red and no others. I want to make sure that only one color of light is existent to get accurate results. I hope this makes sense. Also if you know of any 1-colored high watt led lights please link them to me.

LED's and Arduino Question,,,,

LED's and Arduino Question,,,, I am looking to install LED lights (a LOT) in a 1:18 diecast car. I'm slowly grasping the wire schematics, and feel the install wont be too tough (yeah right)... But, I am looking for a way to turn the lights on/off. Since I will put lights (or extend fiber optics to) tail lights, blinkers (front and rear) brake lights, fog lights, running (marker) lights, head lights, and a bevy of interior point lights via a Fiber Optic layout. My main question is the lighting controls. As you can see, I need to be able to switch a variety of lights, in different modes,,, Blinking for 4-way, blinking for turn signal, all on, just running lights on, and brakes lights on....Anyone care (dare) to step in?
