I am building a rangefinder that I want to be able to put LEDs in. I also wanted to make a slot at the base of the rangefinder to accept a tab at the top of the stalk - as opposed to gluing (or otherwise attaching) the rangefinder directly onto a flat stalk top. I want to cast my rangefinder in resin, which means the area inside the spot where the slot and LEDs go will be almost full of resin. My problem is this:
If I put a slot in the base I'm afraid that it will get in the way of the LEDs, since they are placed directly above it. Have people here run into problems like that? If so, what did you end up doing?
