FYI on LED Lights
- I have spent a lot of time over the last month trying to get LED
lighting figured out for my Wyoming project but alas, same as Rich
Spelling discovered, LEDs are not there yet. But I did get a pulse
generator figured out that'll make LEDs much brighter and cheaper to
assemble an anchor light. The complete circuit less LEDs can be
assembled for about $8.00 in Radio Shack prices. I posted
schematics, theory, and my conclusions on my website. These are
just my thoughts and conclusions, if anyone can make if work better,
please, I'm all ears so to speak.
- I have not experienced the outgassing phenomenon using MDO
plywood. I have used peelply only on the butt joints and consider
it well worth the expense. When I removed the clamping boards,
there was no filling or sanding required.
For pre-glassing or coating the large flat surfaces in the
horizontal position, peelply is too expensive and is unnecessary.
I use adhesive applicator roller covers. These are roller covers
with 1/8" nylon bristles rather than the nap found on paint rollers.
They are specifically designed for epoxy and other adhesives.
They are made by Linzer and I find them at Home Depot. I cut
them in half because I find it less tiring to use a 4" roller. Short
lengths of these roller covers, split on the bandsaw and wedged
into a saw kerf at the end of a stick, make great brushes.
