HID Dive Light

dive light

Dive gear has become so commercialized that DIY diving equipment is almost frowned upon. The dive light group that lives on msn is full of design ideas and how-to’s for building some custom dive gear. My favorite is the HID cannister dive light. The light head is made from a maglite flashlight. Either a HID lamp/ballast made for ATVs or a cheap MR16 halogen is used. The batteries are contained in a seperate waterproof cannister. (Yes, I love to dive. I’ll be building some of these as soon as I buy a mini-lathe.)
