CCL brackets

One of the first things I made with Mandy Mendel (oh yeah, I decided she needed a name and that name is “Mandy”) is a set of brackets to mount cold cathode fluorescent tubes on here. They look like this:

Mendel Cold Cathode Lamp Brackets

Mendel Cold Cathode brackets 2

I also put them on Thingieverse in case anyone else fancied strapping lights to their mendel.

The motivation for these was mostly that I’m probe to sitting in the dark working on my internet tan but would still like to be able to watch things printing (a large part of my reason for building a 3D printer is I find them fascinating to watch) but there’s also a bit of bling factor in there – I do just like techie stuff that lights up tastelessly.
