    Default Good deal on 3mm Fiber

    Not sure how many of us use fiber, but I found a really good bulk-buy deal.

    Front page, first item.

    I have always been curious about getting a better beam out of a 635 array via fiber optic. Anyway, a good buy if anyone needs a LOT of fiber optic.

    Supposedly, it is Rayon with high % of transmission. For the price, I thought it fun to mess with... Clip off about 20 meters and then eBay it for the same price

    Looks cool. I could see sanding one side and using it for highlights on a case. If anyone wants, I'll split a box with 'em. PM me.

    Actually that sounds like a cool idea. If you feed the "spill" from the inside works into the end of the sanded fiber(s) outlining the edges they would change and glow as the output does. That could look pretty good. And it could also work as an visual indicator of the activity inside while keeping the case closed.
    So both a safety thing and a custom case mod...yeah. That does sound like a good idea !
