My yard light runs dual 12 volt incandescent lights in series on a 24 volt power supply. It seems these bulbs burn out constantly so instead of buying new bulbs or investing in the over priced LED replacements I made a couple


  1. break the glass on an old bulb (i put one in a plastic bag and then crushed it).
  2. print the light.stl and lightCover.stl
  3. use 5 of your favorite 5mm LEDs
  4. based on your LEDs and input voltage select your resistor
  5. press the base of the bulb into the light.stl
  6. press in the 5 LEDs
  7. solder everything up
  8. CA the cover and the base to the light.
