    Not sure if any one else has figured this out, but the standard sized LED strips slide right into a V-Slot channel and stay nice and flat and in place. This will allow for some creative task lighting on machines as well as being able to bling them out just for the fun of it.

    Yes I noticed the LEDs in his photos. I liked the look of them, and I think I'll have some that in my next build. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Even better and very useful. :thumbsup:
    Question: If one of the LEDs dies, do the rest keep working? :rolleyes:
