I've picked a "starter set" of LEDs and accessories - Looking for advice Answered
Hi Everyone... I'm looking to get into a bunch of random LED projects so I need some LEDs and various accessories.
I've done soldering and such in the past, so I have a soldering iron (cold heat) and solder and flux... but I'm wondering if this is a good set of starter equipment and if the prices are decent...
any suggestions or comments are welcome...
