Test bench for globes & LED's
« on: August 07, 2013, 06:02:55 PM »
With most of us using led's & so many different brands/types/colours etc etc, would be good to compare globes & led's on some sort of test bench, Any of you Guro's knock one up, test them for many reasons before fitting them in there places, some spots are a pain to get to blah blah.  !@#

Yep 3 hours from south Melbourne to Geelong grrrrr.

    I'm stuffed send me a reminder tomorrow night and ill duck out and take a photo.

  What I've done is got a 4xaa battery pack from jaycar and in the handle of a plastic tub mounted a 44, 555 & 89 globe socket and wired them all to the battery pack.  The tub has three compartments I keep one with 44s one with 555s and flashers in the other one.  Grab a globe sit it in the socket if it works it goes into the game.

  It's amazing how many new globes are stuffed from the packet and nothing worse than finishing a game to find a dud globe under a ramp etc

That's quite clever, holder and tester in one.   ^^^
