LED Light Strips

January 24, 2017

I have a couple of florescent fixtures that have been out for some time.  I purchased some replacement LED tubes for them but they turned out to be too difficult to modify. I had purchased a few rolls of LED strips with the intention to make a light panel but I never got around to it so why not use the strips to make a custom fixture and while I’m at it, add some custom lighting to the bandsaw.

    Hi Matt, and greetings from Seattle,
    For a low cost light diffusion material try drafting velum I don’t know if it does anything to change the light color value but it works great as a diffusion material, I know sometimes it is used by lighting grips in the film industry as a low cost alternative to the more expensive diffusion material that is made expressly for that purpose..
    And dude, leds directly on the bandsaw…GENIUS!

    As always, all the best,
    Doug

    Matt,
    Not sure what is the issue but when I click on the video above I get an error message… video not available. Would like to see how those strip lights are working for you.
    Thanks,
    Bob
