5mm LED Holders

One of the things I find myself making often, is plastic (plexiglass) control panels. I still have not made my desktop cnc yet, but when I do, I can stop drilling these panels by hand. Mounting LED's is always a task, and I started using these very nice chrome LED holders. They come with a plastic plug for the 2 LED leads to stick through, and hold the LED securely. For my 4 lead RGB LED's, I just use a spot of hot glue to hold the LED, and heat shrink tubing to insulate the leads. Use a silicone coated wire for flexibility and stress relief.
