Looking for Help with a flat LED panel light Answered

Greetings and salutations,
I am trying to find out the feasibility of making a light strip like this
http://www.hornady.com/store/Lock-N-Load-Light-Strip
It would be my fist LED project - so where would I get the LED's and all the other requisite bits and pieces?
Also would it be cheaper to make my own - or would I be better of biting the proverbial bullet and buying it from Hornady?

Thanks
Andrew

Buy it, For 18 bucks, the assembly of the bits and your time, its not worth it.

+1

Also consider that for 18 bucks you can have FIVE METERS of very similar strip; http://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_nkw=led+strip+white&_sacat=0&_odkw=led+strip&_osacat=0&_from=R40

Just supply your own 12v wall wart and switch.

With that 5 meter strip - can it be cut and re done into smaller pieces?

Thanks
Andrew

It can be cut every 3, 4, or 6 leds (depending on the style) - then you just solder on + and - wires.
