    Cool project! When the bulb burns out do you have to replace the whole speaker / bulb?

      I would imagine the LEDs will last for years.

        Made in China led, yea… 10 years, highly doubt it. Maybe a few months, if lucky a year. I burn through led like every year or so and just accepted the fact that cheap led has 1/10 of the life span

    Love the design, but it does concern me that should the valve be closed, it would short out the power cord and cause an electric shock to the user.
    Is there a way to remove the internals of the valve so that it cannot close?

      Yes, you can!

    Nice.lamp/speaker Steve. Really like the bulb protector wire cage thingy, it added the perfect finishing touch.

    None of the links for Sengled, in the text work, can this be rectified? I love the idea but can’t access the bulb makers Sengled.
    Great idea to diversify to add industrial pipes to wood projects.

    Your innovation and energy never seem to end Steve.

    If you turn the tap, wont’t it sever the wire? Potential danger there. Someone might think to use it for on/off.

    The only, ONLY thing I would have done differently is to use better screws to hold the flange to the piece of wood, perhaps brass.

    @ Glyn Davies
    To get the right links replace https:// with http:// It seems they have problems with the cert.

    Hi Steve, really like this, but… Seems there’s a high chance of it having an insulation problem and becoming live. Not just the valve mentioned above, but from repeated pulls on the cable.

    Maybe add an earth wire to the metal parts. And secure the cable properly.

    HI John, what size and type fittings did you use for the light socket?
