A challenge for those of you with an NJ International #1182 Upper Quadrant Type Wig Wag; how to install a tiny nano or other wise red LED in its target light. Good luck, one and all!!

Can you 'illuminate' us on your challenge? More information would highlight the topic.

Nano leds are indeed challenging.

simply by putting one in the target light where the original red lens is now. Then again, maybe a pico LED would work

I'd say the LED would be a bit of a challenge but making the Wig part Wag would be the real fun thing. The word "Simply" would be totally out of place anywhere in that project.

I actually have one of the lights and target out in my shop building. It has a red 5" sealed beam light in it.
