1. nice tank
2. you know what you are doing.
Tank and lights look great! A little off topic, which Miller are you using (I guess that's the fitter coming out in me lol)?
Great build. Thank you for sharing.
Awesome build Grizz!!!! Thank you for sharing!
Great job. I;ll be starting a similar build for my 92 corner. I was going to go for 3/16 bottom plate and then thermal glue the 1/8 fins on. Does the heat dissapate well without full welds?
yea his temp on the heat sink only goes up buy 5 degrees all day, and thats nothing. his are just tacked on too. I have put my hand on the heat sink after its been running all day, and its super cool still
Very cool build. The diy'er in me wants to know exactly how you mounted the leds to the al. AlsoI do you have a price breakdown? I know it would be in loonies, but we can convert to $$.
Seeing PAR readings of even cheap led fixtures I know the rig you built will easily post nice par readings.
Damn I was hoping there was a cool prize
272 - 3w LED = 816w @ 100% intensity
MillerMatic 252 with a 30A SpoolMatic & a Miller Dynasty 200 for the TIG welds.
Yep what he said vvvv
LED are attached with a 2 part Apoxy called Artic Silver. Loonie wise & this is only a guess because I am working with the owner of Modular LED on a few things & we do some wheelin & dealing BUT with that said around 2200 loonies give are take for all the components and about 40 loonies per heat sink for the aluminum. As a welding company owner I get contractor price on the aluminum.8) You could take my part break down & visit Modular LED to figure it out
.........hope I don't get spanked for dropping that name in last sentence.........
Oh YES I must not forget to thank everyone else for the compliments on my work & build as well so........
