Vactrol Folks..!

I'd been making vactrols, but it turns out managed to kill most of the LEDs with my heat gun. After hours of messing around with heatshrink, LEDs, LDRs, superglue and plastic foam wadding I gave up and just ordered some Xvive vactrols from Thonk...


  1. Try Fimo style modelling clay works a treat

  2. Nice idea. Or Blu Tack or Sugru. I wanted to make some for no cost, so when that started to go south I just ordered some proper vactrols - life's too short. I might come back to this at some point - chewing gum is a time honoured way of fixing stuff like this...
