  1. Lighting: Is there a way to sync two cheap, battery-powered strobes to flicker simultaneously?

    Halloween Props
    Hello, I have two cheap ($1) strobe lights from the Dollar Tree. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way I could butcher - I mean - "politely modify" them to sync their strobe timing together, as well as their power switch?

For whatever reason, the power supply must be pumping out a voltage spike or something that was...

I did add the handle to make it look more like a real one, but what l like about it is the base is slate which is a great score. It originally came from a disconnect switch. As you can see I did change handles now l have the...
