Thing-A-Day Day 13: Compass Night Light

This past week has been pretty hectic at work, so I haven’t been keeping up with Thing-A-Day, but I’m getting back on track as of today.

The basis for today’s project was a Chanukah present I got from my parents: a compass from an airplane.

Airplane Compass

The tag says "Airplane Compass | Made in Chicago | Does not point North"

It has a bulb built into it already.

All it took was some solder and a power supply and I had myself a nice little night light.
