I was working on installing LEDs in my building today when I got tired of trying to get my flashlight to stay where I needed it. So I took 5 minutes off to build a new tool.

Heres the list of parts:
One parts holder minus one alligator clip
One free flashlight from Harbor Freight
One 6x1 aluminum strip
One 2 piece of 1/4" aluminum rod
Two nut/bolts
Result - One adjustable spot light

What a terrific idea. I have at least two of those free little flashlights.

First Id like to thank Carl B for all his patience with me on the LED/Resistor thing. I received my LEDs and resistors and they are installed. The Resistor Genie said to use this pattern.



So I obediently did so with the exception of splitting the 5 into a 3 and a 2. I had the 3 lights on the stairs of the silo and I coupled that with 2 in the building. I did so in the building also.

The test lighting.







The night shot or why bother to install lights in the first place.





Tomorrow Ill be off to the Center to install the building.

Frank, That looks terrific, but there must be more than two lights in and on the building? (If you had built a brewery I could have said 'looks like they have an excellent light ale'.
But you didn't, so I won't :)
