So, YAY I found a new 2020 300LEDs/M strip [link
] that has amazing resolution and brightness.
I bought them for accents, but just can't stop myself from making them into a blade.Video on TikTok
Having experimented with a number of diameters (standard and metric) I found 1/4" ID x 1/2" OD x 1/8"wall (just over 3MM wall thickness) to be a perfect thin blade but super strong (maybe even stronger than 1" thick wall?). The only issue is diffusion as the clear just doesn't cut it and even sanding the outside really isn't doing the job.
Does anyone know a source for translucent
Polycarbonate Rigid Round Tube?
