Advanced Notification of Interruption to Shipping
We are now expecting to move to our new premises in Rugby during the last week in November. During the move, we will not be shipping any orders out for the period Tuesday 25th November to Tuesday 2nd December. Last shipping day will be Monday 24th November and re-commence Wednesday 3rd December. Orders placed after 12 noon GMT on the 24th will be processed from the 3rd December
Whilst our machine shop is re-located, we are unable to carry out machining modifications on gears, sprockets, pulleys etc. Any order placed which includes machining options is unlikely to be processed until mid December.
The solar garden light is an interesting project that uses sustainable energy to illuminate a white LED. During the day the solar panel charges an AA battery, then when it goes dark the board automatically switches from charging the battery to illuminating the LED.
The solar panel is resin encapsulated and therefore waterproof. You will need to make a waterproof enclosure for the rest of the parts. Alternatively the board has been shaped so that it will fit into an old jar.
