Does your kid can't sleep at night without a light?
Does your electric bill rise?
Well, I found a simple solution.
You can now sleep at night without worrying about turning off your kid's lamp.
Let's make a "timer lamp".
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Prepare the Tools and Materials
We're gonna need:
old yet, a working timer(from broken electric fans,oven toasters or washing machines)
Light bulb and socket
wires with a plug(from old extension cords or power supply cord)
flexiglass (optional) /old plastic bottles/tin cans
Note: It happened that i have some leftover flexiglass in our storeroom, but if you don't have one you can be creative and build other designs. What matters here is the timer.
Step 2: Build Your Lamp's Body
Again, don't limit your lamp's design to this. You can be creative and resourceful for your lamps body.
In making my lamp's body, i used the flexiglass, superglue, drill and screws.
Step 3: Construct the Circuit
It's just like a simple circuit. Composed of the voltage source, the bulb and socket and the switch but this time, we will use a timer switch. Use electrical tapes for connecting the circuit.
Step 4: Install the Circuit to Your Lamp
First, find where you want to put your bulb. Then, the switch. I kind of made a mistake in installing my circuit because i put the switch below the bulb.
Step 5: Try Your Lamp
After installing the circuit, test the lamp using the timer switch.
Step 6: Add Designs
For this material, the flexiglass, you may paint it with what art you desire.
