HLD - did you use the rimless variety - 13 x 150mm ?

Yep, rimless heavy duty, although you could probably use a rimmed tube if you inserted it from the other end and fed it through until the rim contacted the holder.

Could try the local high school science dept. Will probably let you have one for a gold coin donation.

Have started getting all the bits together. My first mistake was ordering 13mm test tubes, I should have got the 15mm ones, the bulbs I bought from Jaycar are just that fraction too big for them. :oops: The new ones are on the way from the above link now. I got the glands from Jaycar too, they will take the 15mm tubes just fine.

Oh sorry 41South, my bad. :oops:

I only replied regarding the rim question, and leaving the diameter question unanswered implied it was correct.

;) Not your fault at all HLD! I bought things in the wrong order, should have got the bulbs first - then the tubes :roll: definately my fault. I have another job for the 13mm ones, nothing goes to waste :)

:?: Just thinking out loud here, but would this design work with a LED festoon instead of a conventional bulb, or would that not be enough light?

A LED festoon bulb would have a longer battery life, and wouldn't produce as much heat.

Immediate 'problems' that spring to mind would be size, the fact that LEDs are generally very directional, and without a focussing element aren't that bright.

Although if you only worked out of one side of the yak, I suppose you could give it a lash...

Update: Have found 2 test tubes with waterproof gland fitted and ready for halogen bulb/cable.

First two hands to go up get them $5 each (as some sort of cost recovery on materials and postage - I recently got ear damage from Mrs. Dwarf about all the free goodies I was sending out :$ )
