NEW GUIDE: Personal Torch 3000

Make a compact flashlight you can use camping, in your glove-box, or trick-or-treating!

The following items are what the guide uses to construct the PT3000… there is a lot of room for substitution and creativity.

  • Super Glue (plastic-to-plastic)
  • E6000 (plastic-to-PCB)
  • Semi-transparent filament
  • Soldering iron and solder

  • 3x 3mm LEDs
  • 1x appropriate value resistor
  • 1x 9v battery clip
  • 1x 9v battery
