Using the torch head and bub (LED replacement) in a project


Hi, I’m working on a sculpture which I started almost 2 decades ago.  It fits a mini maglite torch.  For exhibition purposes I’d now like to use the head, the bulb (an LED replacement from eBay) and add a resistor (and wire to a transformer).[br]


Can you tell me how to go about dismantling the body/battery enclosure?  The end of that has the two pin socket to take the bulb and must have contacts and I’m guessing a resistor under the cap which I’d like to use.   I’m worried to leaver the cap off since it might just snap.  Which is the best way in?[br]


All my best,

Thanks, Tom
