Portable mini led light

Recommended Posts

Attached are a few pictures of this mini led light I found at ACE (two pack for about $25.). Each has two light levels and measures about 4" x 3" x 1".  I use one for a mini sanding dust hood I made. They are small and very portable. I move them around as needed...Moab

Mike; I’m still looking for a “very small” but powerful fan that will help me exhaust dust through a filter in the back of the booth... Moab

Moab,

 

I suggest using one or two fans taken from an old computer to exhaust the dust...they're small and pretty powerful. Something to consider, anyway.

Alttached is the actual package at Ace Hardware. If you want one and can't find it at your local Ace I'd be glade to purchase it for you (while supplies last). Cost is about $17 +- plus tax. I'll ship at the lowest cost I can find (usually book rate if I can convince them it's a book).LED.thumb.jpg.6a954481b57ef70c32c0fef1c6abf1e5.jpg I have absolutely no profit motive but no returns accepted...Moab

You don't want to get caught doing that.  I mixed up a couple of packages I was mailing for the NRG office and mistakenly sent one at the media mail rate and it was returned with postage due at the regular rate and I had to re mail it at the regular postal rate.  So it cost double the regular rate plus the original media rate.

There are better alternatives, 2 examples, a LED bulb twice as bright than 800 lumens and the LED light for video, more than 10 times as bright.

The price of the LED bulb lower than $17. You need at least something brighter than 1000 lumen.

It all depends on your needs. My small leds are perfect for my small Preac sanding box and even better to place on the deck just a few inches from where I'm working.I do have much larger leds for general lighting...Moab

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
