I've received permission from Tim to post this here, as I'll be on the beg in a moment.
Quite a few times recently we've had discussions about relatively simple pieces of equipment which could easily be built by a reasonably adventurous person. These things include simple LED lighting, dimmers to drive them, higher power LEDs, reworking of existing lights, cable fabrication, and other bits and pieces of general utility. Often, these projects have been more or less based on the assembly of a few preexisting modules and devices in a box, which is fairly common practice anyway.
In each case it's seemed like a bit overcomplex to go into a step-by-step description of the work involved on the site, so I'd thought about producing some short, five-minute videos giving an idea how some of it can be done to produce things that are genuinely useful.
It had occurred to me to put up some sort of crowdfund for this, possibly something like Patreon, to cover parts costs and a bit of time. It wouldn't involve huge amounts of money and I wouldn't expect to make a serious wage out of it, but it'd be nice not to end up hugely out of pocket.
Anyway, I'm posting here to see what the reaction is. What do we think?
