Working on DIY LEDs? Have skills which are useful for DIY electrical projects? Have a tutorial on an LED build? Please, link and share what you've found so others can do the same. I'll keep this post updated as the thread fills with the gems we've gleaned on LEDs.
I want to take a moment and thank all the members who have already contributed here. There is an amazing amount of information available, and all of you make it possible. This exchange of information is what drives progress in leaps and bounds. I, for one, greatly appreciate what you do.
Thank you so very much.
