SWMAS LED Light Building Lesson /
Workshop for those who already pre-ordered parts.
by Matt Bielski

The June SWMAS program will be Matt Bielski holding a light building workshop at the meeting.

Example of Matt's work:


If you would like to get higher output or custom-made lights already made up and pre-built by Matt, e-mail Matt directly at ski82566@aol.com.  The lights would have 4 rows of LEDs, higher capacity power supply, and be completely sealed off.  Matt estimates the cost of pre-built lights to be $1.25 to $1.50 per inch.
