No matter what I tried the pic still ends up sideways even though I tried resize and all other options I could think of. The actual pic on the computer is fine but oh well. Thanks

With all these mods is it likely your battery will drain faster.

Hi Guvmore,
There is a separate small battery pack for the lights. Wanted to make sure the CZ circuitry was powered by the (2) 9 volts as intended and nothing else attached.

"No matter what I tried the pic still ends up sideways"
Try cropping the original image so it's wider than its height, ie. trim off the top of this 'meter light' pic. It's worth a try, anyway.

Seperate battery for the lights?? Seems unnecessary to me. I'd run two high-efficiency LED's in series, from the 9V supply. You should be able to obtain appropriate brightness from 2mA, done this way. A constant current circuit would make a better job of it than a simple dropper resistor, but obviously more complex. You can get pretty decent efficiency white LED's in 3mm / 5mm lensed packages, but the best ones tend to be surface-mount these days. You could also use yellow LEDs .. nice Fisher colour.

What is used to hold faceplate tight against box? Mine is loose at headphone jack when I pull out plug like so.

Harold there are 2 small screws in the back of the housing that screw into the metal coil connector bracket on the inside on mine and thats what holds it in. Sometimes they need a little NUDGE when first removing but the faceplate will pull forward removing the circuit board when the 2 screws are removed...

Yes I took it out and tightened the jack and still moves when take headphone jack out?
I thought there was something else holding faceplate tight against the box? A Fisher tech said clips? But I didn't seen any?

Use fiber optics like the CoinStrike/GoldStrike lighting... smileys with beer
