A little better
That would work. Usually we only need one or two at the most per an engine. Unless one is doing blinking ditch lights then timing might be an issue.Noob, I cheated, Radio Shack carries blinking LED's. Disadvantage of them is they all blink independent of each other.
Greg. I found a neat little circuit on ebay for alternating leds. It took about 10 minutes to build. I run it off of 1 3.7v rechargeable. Arrived very promptly from China. The panto car in the bullet train has 2 lights in the back.
I actually did test just soldering the wire and found connectivity and bonding issues. Scraping and sanding the coating off at solder points yielded the best results.Some of that stuff will have the insulation melt away while soldering... did you try that?
This is what they are.Was just curious there is a version of magnet wire that does this, but it probably costs more money. I have used some of the stuff I am talking about and it works a charm.
Just taking a shot in the dark, I hate scraping magnet wire! (Made a few DC motors back in the 50's and 60's)
