Le Hungover.....

So i visited my local ACE Hardware yesterday... never going to home depot again.. ACE has EVERYTHINGGGGGGG.. they have an aisle completely of bins with fasteners/bolts/hardware/clips/little cool things that i don't know what they do....

I went in there to get the parts to make my camcorder mount, after talking to a couple dudes about it, i came up with 2 approaches to make it. One involves pvc and it literally fits the flashlight great, i need to do some minor trimming to make it work.

The other was using a pipe clamp, and running a bolt thru it, i had the flashlight mounted on the camcorder before i left the store.. so far it works brilliantly.

I will make the other one just because i got the parts to make it, plus i like building things.

Total cost for parts to make both mounts, with all stainless steel bolts and washers: 4.97 would have been about 2 bux to use the one that i current am... i am VERY impressed so far with how it worked out. Will post pictures to the blog soon to show you how it looks, with video of it in action to follow that. Maybe later today, for now i am SLEEEEEEEEEPY.
