Yesterday after going to numerous bike shops to find a suitable front headlight for my mountain bike i decided that they were over priced or low quality and decided to create a 'mini' version of your luxeon headlamp
It cost under $20 - ALL the parts are availalbe
from jaycar and with basic tools (soldering iron, dremel) you can make a very
functional, robust and cheap light
The cool bit is that the LED's are recessed back
in the socket and the internal metal that is usually used for the negative power
from the battery acts as a great reflector which gives both a good spread with a
central focus, you can adjust how it focuses by simply bending or moving the
internal LED's with your finger
Interesting Turbo Mod

New Car Complaint
I have a complaint. I would like to buy a new car.
I would like it to be a Holden or a Ford. However, it needs to be a wagon,
because of my extra curricular activities (musician), and I would really like it
to be a V8
Now, I don't want any hero colours, but I am
willing to accept bonnet bulges.
Do you think I can get what I want?? Not on your
Nellie. If I could buy a wagon from Holden, it would be good, but I can't afford
the tyres. I don't want 18" + rims. I don't need them where I go. Dirt roads
etc., The same with Ford, but I can't get a wagon with a V8. I would
settle for a 6 + turbo IF it was a wagon, but I just gotta walk out of the
showroom, as nothing is on offer. (even after offering cash MONEY)
I even considered buying a Supercharged Camry at one stage, but the cost of the replacement tyres...definitely prohibitive
Doesn't anybody drive on rough rural roads any
DIY Cleaning Injectors
I have an ultrasonic jewlery cleaner, was wondering If you would consider writing a DIY article on cleaning injectors? what solution to use and wether the injectors need to be pulsing whilst in the solution.
The current article on injector cleaning made me
think wether this is something I could do myself.
