I'd like to get some cold cathode lights for my entirely see through acrylic plastic case. But before I do I'd like to know if it's actually safe. & what to look for when buying this type of lighting. Any recommendations would be nice.



Thanks

Well, of course they are safe to use. I don't think they would have been on the market long if they were harmful.

So, heres where to look for eyecandy stuff.

Superstar, i don't even have a physical store yet. A stand alone garage has been my only shop for the last few years. I do not want to expand more than where i am right now. I make around $20,000 a year from the home store and that supplements my $30-40,000 career as a utility technician. I am good at being a utility tech and am at the point where many people seek me to subcontract out working for them. I prefer things this way as i cannot seem to find the time to do much else anymore. I do not want to take the next step into a real store front computer business as that would include escalating to the point of hiring people, paying rent on a store, and all the rest that goes with that scenaro. I just want to have my little shop where everyone knows where to go to get real fixes for their computers. I am a one man shop and want to keep it that way. I've been there-done that with other bigger businesses years ago, so i choose to keep it where i am the happest. Maybe some day i will expand but i doubt it as i am 60 years old now, so why bother.
