Lighting Stage 38
As in previous stages, I needed to drill a 2mm hole through the center of the Emergency Light Frame in Stage 38. I also created the shallow 2mm recess in the back of the Emergency Light Lens (make sure not to go all the way through the lens):
And, as before, I secured a Micro Bit Light (Red) LED to the back of the Lens with a tiny drop of Solarez UV Thin-Hard Resin:
The plug of the LED was fed through the hole in the Frame and the Lens was secured into place:
I drilled a matching 2mm hole through the center of the rectangular recess in the Step Backplate:
Next, I temporarily fitted this Step Backplate to the Box Frame assembly. I used a sharp pin to mark the location of the hole I just drilled onto the side of the Box Frame:
Then, I drilled a 2mm hole through the Box Frame assembly. This will allow the LED wiring to pass into the Box Frame:
I repeated this process on the other side of the Box Frame, hoping the hole is needed in the same place:
Finally, I threaded the plug of the new Micro LED through the Step Backplate and secured the Emergency Light Frame into place:
This Step Backplate (and the entire Step assembly) will be mounted to the Box Frame in Stage 39. We will attach the wiring then.
