Quote from: warmcanofcoke on Jun 26, 2012, 03:03 amIt occurs to me that most Console Builders might come to use Florescent tubes in their Time Rotors. It is a seductive idea, they are readily available, and not too expensive. However this bulb type tends to flicker as it gets older as the actuators misfire. I'd like my console to light up every time. I was thinking about using lightsaber blades as a substitute for the bulbs in the classic series Time Rotors http://www.ultrasabers.com/category-s/53.htmwith led modules http://www.ultrasabers.com/product-p/led%20module.htmKingpin thought I should use a series of Led lights like the ones used in many licensed Star Wars Light Sabers ... I think it might be a little expensive - and It has been a while since I soldered anything. Alternatively there is a technique to turn clear acrylic Toilet Plunger handles into fiber-optic rods. As seen in this DIY Portal Gun Video on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQFBCH1nno8does anyone have any thoughts on the matter? Or better / less expensive solutions. Or a website where you can buy led lights in series.
