That's cool, the only thing I would change is to use an aligator clip on the led while soldering to absorb some of the heat.

What's a good rule of thumb for how many led's you can add without it being too bright?

I was wondering also, Im going to get my leds in tomorrow or wedensday and I just want to make sure on one thing, I solder the resistor on the cathode, right??? Ive seen two different opinons I heard that they go on the cathode and another goes on node, which one??? Im leaning towards the cathode sid but I could be wrong. Thanks

P.S. justmytwocents I have a quick question, when I do the modular style I have everything except my leds but they will be here in a day or two, but I didnt get the coupler, my dad said that he could just cut the ends off the 5 way and the cd adapter and just solder the + to the 5 way and solder the - to the 5 way, will that work? Thanks

I've got a better question. Thelebos.com manual uses 1/4 watt resistors. I was going to use different LEDs and the only appropriate 47 ohm resistors radioshack has are 1/2 watt. Does that matter?

No, that just means they will handle more amperage. 1/2 watt will be fine (actually what I used.

Moonlight

Try http://www.lsdiodes.com/

They have the 5mm blue led 4000mcd for 1/2 the price ($.45) of others and they also carry the 56ohm resisters in 5 packs for $.25 and shipping is very reasonable. Great/Fast service too!
