PostSubject: Finally a use for shirt collar clips?   Sun Jun 03, 2018 1:20 am

The wee soft metal things that hold the collar of a new shirt to the carboard in the packaging. Always thought I should keep them but if I did I don't know where they are.

Trying to improvise replacement turn indicators from old bicycle reflectors (at top in picture below) They might not notice the colour change if both sides are the same.

Moved the bulb holder inside the wing, cur a hole in the back of the reflector, and mounted it on the outside, BUT I can't get the bulb to flash consistently, despite scraping and bending the contacts. Bulb is OK (though I tried a new one anyway) and a test light probe flashes.

Tried bits of coke can to enhance bulb contacts, but they are too springy and won't stay put.

Don't really need any more shirts...
