So i was looking into shred lights for my diy board but didnt want to pay £70+ for them and i didnt like the look of the crappy ones on ebay so decided to design my own and share them with you guys. Total cost was less than £20.
Ive got all the .stl files for the 3d printed parts if you want them. I can add them to here so PM me your email address and happy to send them over.
Its essentially two legs that have adjustable heads which hold the lights. The legs slot into a base plate so they can be removed when its day time with a xt60 connector so i can unplug them as well.
I used two Rolson torches which you can get on ebay for less than £3. I unscrewed the back where the batteries go, took the button cover off, removed the button and wired directly to the torch’s + and - . Then wired both + together and both - together so both work from one switch (using the batteries in each torch for the power). Then added the XT60 somewhere in the middle so i can unplug it when its day time.
Any way, if you want to use the files let me know. Thanks guys.
