NEW Product: Light plates!
« on: September 05, 2011, 04:39:17 PM »
For 1590B and 1590BB. Cool light plates that fit in between your current bottom plate and the top. Now you can light up your boxes easily!
In the store.
Thanks to TTG!

I think it's just a transparent frosted lid that fits a standard enclosure size, so you can pack it with LEDs and 4017s and have a damned RAVE!

I think you use it like this one --> http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=66840.0

Exactly, BUT...
You no longer have to file the alignment ridge down, that's what the recessed track is for.

Bingo! The hard work is done. You just have to drill the screw holes and what you need to mount the LED(s). No need to modify the case.

great idea!...but are they  for hammond 1590b's.....or eddystone 1590b's...?

the hammonds have more rounded corners than the squared eddystone..(eddystone is what we have in the uk...)

I tried to the make the plates as universal for their size as possible.

The 1590B version fits the Hammond 1590B (Last three generations), the ZVex variant, and the New Sensor Corp. version.

The 1590BB version fits the Hammond 1590BB and the New Sensor Corp. version. The Eddystone case was just too far out of spec to be able to include with the design so it will not fit the Eddystone case or atleast the older originals I have. I don't know about the modern version which maybe closer to the Hammond version.

Wow, cool to see my idea of a couple years back turn into an actual store product. ( I was already flattered when Wampler had them as a feature on his pedals for a while) By the way, you can use regular plexi and a clothes iron too to get the recessed slot. Just put the enclosure on the plexi, and then put the cothes iron on the enclosure and wait for it to be hot enough to be pressed into the plexi.

This lasercut/engraved solution is better though!

Light plates to the masses!

I have always been interested in this but I always had one hang up....

How to properly mount the LEDs  ???

I have read that you need to "sand" them to get the light to shine in all directions.

Can someone kindly explain or point to a link on how to accomplish this? The sanding and proper mounting of the LED(s) in the plexi plate......

Just drill a 5 mm hole in the center of the plate.
Take a water clear 5 mm led sand the sides so it becomes opaque. Then stick it in the hole. That's it. No glue needed.
I believe someone here did a tutorial on light plates. Must have been back in 2008/2009

no no sand the top till its almost flat  so the light can only come out the sides

The plexi acts like a fiber optic path.  The light bounces off the smooth surfaces of the top and bottom but is emitted from the rough surfaces on the sides.  Basically, the light *should* bounce around enough that the channel doesn't make an impact.
