LEDS are boss.. I'm into reef tanks and these are the new craze. Less heat... Huge lumens/watt. So easy to get whatever colour you want and like you said no start up cool down time. Youd get alot interest in the automation side of things from the guys over there on the reef forums paulie

Not sure about lumen but I will get a photo of it beside the old one when I get access to a boom and put it up. From what I have seen already though it is like comparing a car halogen to HID.

Got interested in it when I found out the price of high bays and how much they cost to run. Pretty much made my own. Going to send it to get mass produced after I finish my testing. Also get a constant power reading from the driver and control which is handy and a massive selling point. For example can tell you at 10% the light is using 20W.

Thanks mate, I'll check it out.

I suppose it has its place no doubt but u need to connect it to a main control unit ( global shutdown/start up ) and then individual control like cbus can few companys do iphone automation already for homes/ businesses

But led brilliance and consumption is a winner for anyone from small workshop to big factorys like holden/ford

Getting the iphone app sorted is a fair hurdle as far as ive heard one bloke I know who has his finger already in the cookie jar is

Jet the light is just a small drop in the ocean. I'm not going to go into the big picture here though. You can pm me if you want to know more.

The end of the game is providing automation for peanuts. CBUS exists but its too exy. I am developing a solution so cheap that it will be thrown into every new house and factory for free.

The control is that small white box in the last pic.

Oh totally agree cbus is rape but they kind of have the market cornered atm its trying to switch bigger loads that could become exxy but still cheaper than bus

Good luck butt lips keep us posted

Heres what me and two mates have done over 3 weeks. One week straight every night after work, two weekends and finished it yesterday. None of us have ever built a deck before, but one of the guys is an engineer who has built a pergola and me and my mate are just handy with tools. We built it for one of the guys.. All up came to under $3k including timber which was around $2K on its own. After my mate got a few quotes which ranged from $4K-$7K we thought f*ck it lets have a crack.. Did a bit of research and it payed off..

My mate has most of the pics but heres what ive got, this point we just finished putting the joists in and gettin ready to lay the decking..

Thanks guys, the satisfaction alone is worth it.. Did everything by hand to, hammered every nail, screwed every screw (obviously a drill lol) and dug every hole, cement, the works... I can understand why people charge soo much to do it even though its one of those things that you can do it with a bit of knowledge but most CBF lol...

Whilst we were finishing it up it started raining and gave a good indication of what its gonna look like once oiled and glossed and it looked pretty sweet.. Cant wait to have a bbq and a beer on it in summer...

It's been done before but thought I'd share my 'other' build :).

New 9.5'' Hiros came today - picking up custom axle (70") with hubs and tyres tomorrow. Mate bringing mig over in the morning to weld custom mounts on I've fabricated. Hopefully should be a roller next week if I get the frame painted in time (black semi gloss). Then I'll do wiring, make the checker infill panel for the front and source the toolbox.
