360° Dartboard Lighting - Buy or DIY?
Hi Nutz,

looking into a decent Lighting for my Board i wondered if there are any DIY Solutions around?

I stumbled across several Products wich are ready to Order, the Target Vision, Home-Pro and the Circumlumithingy.
Not that those Options aren´t tempting, i am quite on Budget for the next Months .

Looking into DIY. So are there DIY Ideas using LED Bands and Hacking other Household Stuff to house them?


Cheers,
Markus

Be interesting to see what others think. I'm looking to possibly do my own but I'm not exactly tech-savvy  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Me too.

lurking around at Home i found some leftover PVC sheets and a 2m LED Band.
I just started a DIY Try, mostly to justify the Order of a Target or Home-Pro Lighting i guess. Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

DIY. It's much less expensive.

I had a design in mind, before the 360 was announced, that nearly matches it. Right now, I'm just working on mounting it and will probably replace the LEDs with the next step up in brightness. When it's finished, I'll post pictures.

I have the lights mounted on a 23 inch quilting hoop. It seemed to be the easiest way to get something that circumference. The 360 is a little wider.

- If it don't fit, force it.  If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
- If it ain't broke, you might still be able to fix it.

One more Question,
there are surround that say "only for Winmau" and others "all Boards but Winmau".
Are Winmau smaller or bigger than other Boards?

Does the Target 360 Lighting fit a Winmau Board as it sits snag fit between the Target Board and the Surround?

So i managed to spend some Time on the Topic and i seems to work pretty well.
Nice Brightness, evenly lit, no Shadows.

Just a quick Pic lying on the Floor. (Warning: Lots of Duct Tape, Zip Ties and ancient Dart Equipment involved)

Here is another Picture beeing somehow finished.
It works and gives a decent bright and Shadow Free Light but i heve not build a solid mounting for it.
It´s just hanging from the Ceiling with 2 Hooks and some Fishing Line.

Nevertheless i will replace it with Targets 360 as soon as it is Back in Stock.

looks really good though, I don't think you need the 360 looking at that Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

You just need a way to fix it to the wall.

How far away from the board is it hung? Looks good though. But if you hit it does it swing or is it up against the board?

It is about 20cm away. Whats that in inches? Eight?
I haven´t hit it yet, but i push against it sometimes when i pick up my Darts from the Board. It swings, but just a few Seconds.

Don´t be. It´s just a Board on a Board and some Carpet underneath. Nothing fancy.
