“Just wanted to let you know that I read about LED shop lights
in the last issue, immediately ordered them
, and installed them in my garage workshop this past weekend. They’re great and I love them. Huge thanks for the tip. My shop lighting has always been non-ideal and that is no longer the case. The LED strips are so lightweight that it’s super easy to just zip-tie them anywhere. Took me like less than half-an-hour to mount all 6 of them to cover my entire (half-garage) shop. It was super satisfying. For the one over my bench (pictured here), I already had a fluorescent ballast mounted there. The bulbs had recently burned out, so I just unplugged it and zip-tied the LED tube to it. Convenient and expedient :)”
Reader Steve: “One thing to add to the ‘Label Your Warts’ article, also label which is positive and negative and the output power. I’ve been able to use old warts for products that didn’t come with them or I couldn’t find its original wart. When I get rid of broken items, I keep the warts.”
Another reader, Liam Greenwood
, suggested marking the warts with silver Sharpies
(instead of printed labels).
