Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials Required
1. Old LED Torch
3. Connecting wire
4. 9V connector
5. Soldering Iron
7. Wooden board
9. Easily bendable but strong wire
Step 2: Cutting the Torch
Cut the torch at 1/4th the length of the body.I cut mine like this
Step 3: Polishing the Torch
Rub the torch surface with a piece of sand paper. This will give it a nice finish.
Step 4: The Holder
Wrap the wire around a cylindrical object like a pen.wrap the end of the wire around something larger to make the holder head.
Step 5: The Stand
For making the stand I used a
M. S.D Board. I asked a carpenter to drill holes for the holder,switch and battery.
Step 6: Removing the Reflector
The beams from torches are usually focused to one point.Let's fix this.Remove the reflector from the PCB and fix the PCB using epoxy.
Step 7: Strengthening the Wire(optional)
If you are using wire of low strength, there is a chance that it can't support the weight of the Torch piece and will bend.Supporting it with epoxy is a good idea. apply epoxy only halfway up.
Step 8: Connections
Connections are simple.Refer photos.
Step 9: The Finished Product
This is a good way to make a low cost table lamp and recycle old stuff.You can make it more neat by panting the stand. Please comment your suggestions below.I'm a new author who could use some expert advice
