Step 2: Prepare Your Light Bulb.

wrap your light bulb in the plastic bag,and break the glass with the hammer. Remove everything in the fitting and at the bottom.

Step 3: The Radio Tube.

cut off the legs from the tube. 1 note:
do not push with the dremel. Just let it do its job. If you start pushing the glass will crack.

Step 4: Last Steps

after you soldered the led and resistor together you glue the tube in the fitting with super glue. It will take a few seconds but it will hold.
Push the led tru the bottom all the way up to the tube. Hold it there and fill it with hot glue. I tried super glue but that wasn't working.
