I saw a few posts about this topic. Another good idea for a cost effective light.

This is the one I installed.

I made one of those mill lights awhile ago with 3 nested COB LED rings. Since these tend to get soaked in oil, a 3D printed enclosure for the rings was made and then they were potted in epoxy. It's been working fine for several years now
Hmmmm - - - is there any way you could do a write up of what you did (with parts used if possible)?

Please - - -and thanks.

I did a blog write-up on the whole project here:


If you have any questions feel free to ask. One improvement that could be made is adding some strain relief for the wires leaving the epoxy potted piece.

Why thank you sir!

I think I am learning that I just don't have enough time to experiment and do myself (all those useful hacks).
Greatly appreciated!
