Participants will assemble a laser cut LED badge and familarises themselves with the variety and safe use of hand tools in The Edge Fabrication Fab. This is the practical exercise for the Edges Hand tools induction.
The aim of the activity is to provide inductees with an opportunity to :
|Part #||Part Name||Image|
|Laser Cut Parts|
|5||Cr2032 Calculator Cell (Battery)|
|6||Flashing 5mm LED (various colours)|
|8||3M 12mm screw|
|9||Metal Badge Back|
First, with the Cordless Drill and a counter sink bit, countersink the hole in the Battery back (Part 4)
make the counter sink about a match head deep
Next, separate the Battery Retainer (Part 3) from the Battery Back by sawing the part in half.
Are you applying force? Make sure you secure your work… clamp the material down or put it in a vice when using a drill or saw
With hot glue, stick the Battery Retainer (part3) to the back of the Badge Front (Part1) make sure you have aligned the screw holes and LED holes on both parts.
your blob of glue should be about the size of a pea
Test your LED (part 6) by placing the long leg over the positive (+) of the Cell(battery)(part 5) and and the short leg over the negative (-) side.
with pliers bend the short leg over at 90 deg and back on itself
orient the LED so the short bent leg is inboard- towards the cell (battery) and the positive (+) long leg is outboard.
Turn the badge over so you are looking at the face and hot glue the LED in the hole in this position from the front
Turn the badge over again so it is face down and insert the Cell (battery) with the positive (+) up.
Bend the long positive leg over the Cell and back on itself
The LED should Light up.
Align the Battery Back (Part 4) screw hole with the screw hole in the badge front/ battery retainer.
Insert Screw (part) from back to front and screw on nut.
Allow nut to seat in captured nut recess on Badge Front
Tighten Nut and bolt using Phillips head screwdriver and adjustable spanner.
hot glue the badge back
Hot glue the Logo over the LED
