« Part 1: Intro and first hack share Part 2 of Can't leave well enough alone series Part 3: Harbor Freight Dust Collector - Impeller Upgrade »

Another hack off my checklist. You know those free LED flashlights you get with purchase at Harbor Freight? Took it apart and hacked it into a shadow line guide and work light. Shadow lines are a more accurate method than lasers for showing your cut line. It even shows you the width of your kerf. I didn’t want to spin it up here but when it does the teeth width will make a solid line the thickness of the kerf. Now I will know exactly where it will cut. No more eyeballing and guessing…. and uh… now I can cut stuff in the dark…?
