  • I have been experimenting with some LED types, primarily surface mount flat style but I think they are not as effective at transmitting light down the length of the pipe. Probably in part due to my requirement of using red LEDs since they are typically less bright than other colors. Can anyone suggest a super bright red LED that would be most effective at directing the maximum amount of light down the length of the pipe? Previously I have been using the 3.5mm diameter white pipe, I am going to try switching to the 6mm to see if that helps collect more light from the LED.

No public wish lists :(
