My sister started to grow cactuses as a hobby and needed some strong lighting to keep them alive indoors. Boy how botanic specialist stores mark up the price of Led reflectors, I took some of them apart and most of them are just cheap generic chines cob led.
So what to do? Buy a cheap microphone boom arm, a similarly cheap timer and a decent led reflector (30W Philips 5700K) and voila! I got her a growth light for a fraction of the cost and did not even need to buy a single extra bolt or washer Lol

yes it IS working, been about 2 months since I built it and the cactuses are growing nicely


It is also very practical, from time to time I borrow it to use when detailing my car's interior or doing maintenance on my pc.

Added voltage regulator for RC transmitter. All my old NiMh 9.6V batteries are dead, and I rather use lipos.

After looking around the house for a few minutes, I found the perfect GPU anti-sag bracket.

I don't care what the resolution is, on screen, what's behind the window is blurry and too small to see. All that blue light washing everything out isn't helping, either.

He put a transparent PET bottle in there that's half hidden in the case as well, so you think it's a reflection etc. blur until you spot the label on it.
