Always a bonus!

Just a quick question... where are you sourcing the LED's?

Aliexpress or ebay,  whichever is cheaper.  There may be uk suppliers too such as rs...  Remember to get the smps power supplies that have voltage adjust (most do).  I find that by reducing the power a little bit only a tiny amount of light is sacrificed for 20-30 degrees less base temp.  I think on the next fixture I will fix a tool to the adjuster so it can be easily accessed..

These ones came without pots but if future ones do its a handy idea.  Having the led's on low light is handy for setting up the focus range,  it's blinding without even directly viewing
