    Thank you.
    Well, I do electrical maintenace in a steel plant, so a work place without electrical stuff seems naked to me.
    Actually, the conduits are made of a real wire, a 20 awg rigid copper I "may have found in the office"....

    I have some news.
    The garage now has a roof and I exetended the open side by 20 cm so now I can take pictures from a bit farther.
    Also you'll now know what the little things in the electrical boxes are for.

    The roof



    Sam always complained that there wasn't a portable light, here it is.
    You can see the happines on his face, and you can see that that sort of sockets in the boxes are actually... sockets





    Then with the help of Bishop, they started working on the Defender springs.







    Suddenly the main lighting went off and they had to continue working with the portable light only. They'll need an electrician tomorrow.

    What type of electrical plugs/sockets have you used ?
    Are they PC type "mother board" wiring connectors ? or am I way off ?

    Very close. I used pinstrips:
    Male for the plug and female for the socket (obviously )


    And for the power cord I used a cable off of a cheap pair of earphones. It's very thin and very scale, only a bit tricky to weld.
    Actually this one is way too short, I'll make another lamp with proper cable length.
