    Hi,
    I'm pretty sure anything electrical sold these days has to have a plug fitted by law be it standard or molded?
    Cheers :)

    Great work!

    An alternative to mechanical dimming...touch sensitive.
    You could buy a cheap (£8 from Asda) touch sensitive light and install the bits in the base.

    Both look great, I do prefer the first one though.

    I made a backlit sign for a friends distillery a year or so ago, and my approach was to keep everything inside the sign low voltage using LED strips. I had a 12v connection to CE & ROHS approved external driver and dimmer modules - bought from a UK supplier. No idea how that would stand up in court, but made sense to me!

    I see you can buy low voltage incandescent bulbs with standard bayonet or screw fittings, but tbh I think that's just inviting someone to try and put them in a mains fitting!
