    Hi, I am doing this project, http://hackedgadgets.com/2010/04/20/spinning-rgb-led-ball/ for my university, and was wondering what kind of adhesive could i use to hold 6 leds to the motors shaft. In that project he used 3 LEDS, but i plan on using 6 different colored leds, in this picture i want to know what kind of adhesive he used to do this. http://hackedgadgets.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/spinning-rgb-led-ball_3.jpg

    That blob that is holding the resistor and the ends of the led. Anyone can lead me in the right direction? Its cause the adhesive has to be strong and durable because the leds will be spinning fast and if not properly glues it could become hell haha. Thanks

    You could probably hold those on with solder. If you are not powering them, hot glue.

    It looks like two-part epoxy to me.

    But isn't the epoxy a dark gray color? This one seems light brown and see thru.

    Most Epoxies are clear. The ones that are grey usually have a metal powder added to them.
