Thanks PK for the inspiration!
I am about to get back into the hobby after a long time (after several false starts over the past few years), and have decided to go the LED route for my lighting. My order for CAT4101's is waiting to be dispatched from Singapore (wasn't able to source them locally), which I understand is the driver chip that PK has based his setup on.
DIY gurus, especially PK, since you have built something like this here in the South (I am based out of Bangalore): I have a few questions for you regarding sourcing of parts (I don't want to hijack this thread, so please let me know if I should start a separate one for my questions)
1. Where in Bangalore can I get my hands on some good quality LEDs. I have heard about SP Road as a general shopping area for LEDs, any idea what shops to go to? Are CREE LEDs available here? Will optics/lenses be available here?
2. Any suggestions on good places to buy Aluminium extrusions from, in Bangalore? Would be great if the same vendor can also provide anodizing services (to make the final assembly look prettier). To save on costs and gain on DIY experience, I don't plan to buy any expensive kits like the ones from MakersLED, but procure heatsinks etc from local vendors.
Will start a separate thread documenting my build process once it starts, but would appreciate help regarding sourcing at this stage! Thanks!
