In my shop I use 30 watt LED fog lamps I found online for spotlights at my equipment. Only issue is they are 12 volts. Enter having a 12 volt computer power supply and adding power outlets to it. Now you can run 4 lights at 12 volts. This makes #3 so far. Recently moved my drill press across shop and had no power supply outlet on that particular side. Decided now was a good time to upgrade the old one. It ran a roll up shade I use a old power window motor to roll up and down as well as a mixer out of another power window motor. Other than that it sat idle. Still runs everything just added the 4 outlets and made a new box to accommodate the inner workings better. Used some aluminum from our old shop doors at work and cut with a multitool. Drilled as needed and recessed the outlet side into the box. Thanks @Larry Buskirk for his computer box post. Inspired me to make this much better looking as well as some ideas for how to lay it out. Enjoy and be inspired. Internal wiring during fitting / testing. Bench testing with light
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
