Default Today's eBay delivery really is a bargain

These 20 off 5mm bright white LED's which have series resistors wired in series for 12 volt operation cost just $A3.99 delivered from China. They are available in many colours for the same price. I checked the current and it was a mere 17m/A so they lend themselves to all manner of interesting projects running off even a one amp plug pack. they can of course have the resistor changed so that they run on any voltage or by-passed for a project like my illuminated router base which uses a battery box which contains a suitable resistor for the four LED's to run in a series/parallel configuration from a nine volt battery. Here is the pdf to the project.
Here is a shot showing how the groove for the wiring was routed, it got missed when producing the pdf.

At prices like that it's so much cheaper than spending evenings in the pub!

Harold, my desk measure 1.73mtrs (5'8") x 900mm (2'11.5") and I'd struggle to fit in a bigger one. Tomorrow is the 11th. anniversary of our move into this home, perhaps time to sell and buy a bigger one!
