First I would like to say I am new here. I have recently purchased an old work lamp that I plan to refinish. It is currently set up as a fluorescent lamp but long story short I can not find any of those parts to fix it. So I decided I want to make the switch to LED lights. I have been looking around and have come up with a basic understanding on how to do this but I want to bounce it off some people with experience first.
First some general info on the lamp. I would like to reuse the power cord as it is in great shape. The lamp shade is about 12-14" long, 4-5" wide and 3" deep and is of metal construction.
Second heres my general thought I will run the existing power cord into the lamp then connect that to a 120v to 12v step down transformer (located in the lamp shade area) then to a switch of some sort(I was thinking a simple toggle) then run that to two stripes of led lights wired in series. here are links to the products I was looking at using.
please tell what you think I could post pictures of the lamp if needed.
