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.

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

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