    Really cool to have a camera in there to see the wip!

    That's a pretty neat idea. I'll try it out too. Not for a camera but the LEDs.

    Heck yeah. I ran out of magnets but more should be in today so I should be able to finish the bottom board today, then'll add power and connect both ends and see what happens. No reason it shouldn't work. The biggest challenge I can see down the road is making sure the contacts stay clean.

    Nice. I am using a USB Endoscope camera that has LED lighting included. Drilled an angled hole in my dustshoe and it works great. Work pretty well for me.
