Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The LED
for the first step you need to bend the LED's leads to fit snug into or next-to the small switch.
Once bent, blue tack or glue the LED to the switch and thread the negative lead of the LED trough the hole closest to the lead(not the middle), on the switch.
Step 2: Soldering
Solder the LED's negative lead to the switch's pin.
make a small battery holder and solder the positive lead to the battery and the battery's negative lead to the middle pin on the switch, using a small amount of wire.
to test/turn your torch on slide the switch into position.
here is some images above are pictures of the finished torch.
Step 3: DONE - I Think...
Finished now you have your finished LED torch!
use as an emergency light.
or to scare off nasties in your bedroom at night! XD
