Clock - night light
Watch - night light- a wonderful thing for those who like to wake up at night. Usually people wake up in the middle of the night and frantically look for their cell phone to watch time. Our hand-made article kills two birds with one stone: this is the clock lighting and the night light. Light is enough to confidently see in the room. The brightness and color of the glow can be easily adjusted as you like.
Here's what the clock looks like day and night:
Here we will make our watches. For this we need the mechanism itself from Chinese watches or from any other, the most important thing is to work and the arrows were.
A rectangular piece of plywood, I took the old frame from the picture. And he drilled holes in it for the LEDs and the mechanism itself in the center.
On the front side glued white paper. Red stripes cut from red self-adhesive paper. Please note that the LEDs are rotated to the center.
Further - electronic matters. Look at the diagram. The capacitor is 0.22 microfarads and the voltage is not lower than 400 volts. Resistor power not lower than 1-2 W., Diodes for voltage from 400 volts. LEDs are small, super bright, color at your discretion.
Be especially careful when working with electricity !!!!
Connect, turn on, check.
The same can be done with the usual wall clock.
To power the LEDs, you can also use a step-down transformer, or even a pulse type charger from a cellular phone.
