    Has anyone ever made their own stobe light(s)? I'm currently working on building my own and was curious if anyone here has made one or more and could post some information/pictures of your design.

    I'm in the prototype stage right now, having already purchased samples of plexiglass both amber and mirrored, purchased a two channel LED strobe control unit with 27 flash patterns, testing components on a breadboard, superbright led's, all drawn up in cad, etc. Total cost will end up around $100.00 for materials, and it's more of a learning curve for me.

    I'll probably post pics on my progress over the next month or so.

    I'm sure I am not the only one who would want to see pics of your progress. Do it up.
