Another new LED light

I'm constantly finding new ways to combine LEDs with novel light forms. Knowing that the light source will never have to be accessed to change a bulb frees one up considerably in the design process

Using LEDs

A number of people have asked me about using LEDs in my miniatures and rooms and wondered if I used Novalyte™ LEDs. I don't; I usually assemble my own using some VERY small components. The photos give some idea of their size: that's a regular toothpick and the ruler divisions are 1/16 inch.

updating track light design

I been working on a new design for my track lights and thing I have come up with an innovative way of attaching the heads to the "track" so I can hide the wires and still have tilt and swivel capabilities.
