I'm using the covers that i got from FatHead, who i haven't seen around for a while, but is no surprise after he and his wife had their first child, kinda expected him to start having new prioritieskool-lites said:what sort of housing are you guys using?
Nope but I can do that once I get some of the new batch made up. I hate to admit it but I didn't get that far for my 2010 show so I used doubled-over packing tape with a touch of silicon along the wires to seal the entry. It looked completely horrendous close up but I must say it worked reasonably well! Of course they won't last in any kind of weather that way but at night they looked pretty good! I don't have pictures of those - they would go on my wall of shame... :DanoNJ said:Thanks, Brian!!! I was thinking the shrink wrap route myself, but figured I'd ask before I did anything. Any pics of yours available??
I wonder how many strobes there are that are sitting in peoples draws and put in the too hard basket due to being SMDDanoNJ said:I made a few with electical tape for the NJ mini. Tape has held up so far, but I'm sure sitting outside for 60 days some will fail. Wonder if these need to be completly waterproof / resistant.
I'm actually surprised with all the boards sold, more people haven't built more - or just not posting their findings....

This is a task! Mine will not have a trigger so I only need 2 wires. Origianlly I used CAT5 - solid for almost half of the 80 I have. Then got to thinking the sold core will eventually fail and break, so I may turn to extra mini light wire which is stranded and just about fits the wholes.Dave said:Trying to sort out wiring is the hard part for me.
