    P@H/Coopet Nano cube

    My local had one a month back, think its a case of if they have stock left, it will be on the shelf, but once its gone, its gone. There was a price drop, so generally all went pretty quick.

    P@H/Coopet Nano cube

    I just assumed the smaller ones were popular due to price as well as size. I havent seen the smaller one in stock for yonks, but indeed the 25l always did have one on shelf. I will pop in again, see if they have any as i always pass by it.

    P@H/Coopet Nano cube

    My local has 1 25l (mind that was 2-3 wks back) and the 14l sold out as soon as the price dropped and they have not had any in since, hence had a feeling it was discontinued as prior to that they had plenty of stock. :( Really wanted a 14l, even though I had no space, lol. prob a good thing.

    Do i need to earth a BC Cap Lamp

    Price really, I would love LED, and thay are great in portability, but to get my 2watts pg, an LED would cost a lot, I think the 30w 6400k Daylight I have would be better and it only cost me £10. I may justt ran an earth from tin to chain or steel braket that holds the chain :thumbup: Its a...

    Do i need to earth a BC Cap Lamp

    See,I am no expert, safety is a must off course, maybe the tin idea was bad, and should got for plastic, or other instead. Hmmm. :cry: Its why I asked, as I just was a little paranoid.

    Do i need to earth a BC Cap Lamp

    Thanks mate, will do just that :) Back of the light does look the most likely risk. I may add some duck tape to the back as an insulator but still, earthing is probably wise. :thumbup:

    Do i need to earth a BC Cap Lamp

    Thanks mate, Thats the thing, I always assume I would earth to the mains plug, do I just earth tin to braket holding it which is also metal? It sits on a wooden table? Next to the wall? It would all be steel, as the tin will be hanging by metal chain from a metal bracket above? bracket clamped...

    ideas for hanging light - Nano

    Popped into B&Q seemed to have numerous pipes, copper and steel, and with pipe bender should be achievable to get the hanging side done. A welder might be used. Hmmm

    Right, I am doing a bit of DIY for my light, plan was to have a hanging hood/light over tank, made from, :lol: a buscuit tin that is square and attaching light inside (BC Cap). The shiny inside acting as a refelctor. Plan was to have some wire hanging up to something. That something is the...
