    use saran wrap for the window! light it with an incandescant light bulb (though that would cause a fire hazard :worried: )!

    I can get a pic of the side again, but the inside's a nono I'm afraid, it's completely sealed. :thumb:

    Nice job, but that fire hazard could be real if there was a short circuit. A normal case is safe for shorts but a cardboard case could go up in a matter of seconds. Probably fine though.

    I wonder what the melting point of plastic wrap is. It's probably too high to use it as a window material.

    An idea just hit me.. someone (like you Krikkit) should make a case where you only use the boxes your products are shipped in!

    haha nice mod..but the screw driver switch takes it a bit over the edge, maybe it would be easier if you could fasion a simple paper clip switch of some sort to short the pins hehe, youve inspired me to make a full blown case mod out of cardboard sometime
