I have built a flickering florescent light and it works great. If any one wants to talk about it and I can give step by step instructions. If any one wants them. I'm kinda new to here (well i have been on here for a while) I'm just slow and still getting to know how to do threads!!!

Thanks Ben

Oh, so glad you posted this tutorial video here. It is such a cool trick to make flickering fluorescent lights. I'm going to go to a site now and find one of those flasher discs. Never heard of one those before. Thanks!

I've been looking for an inexpensive and effective way to build one of these for a long time now. I will definitely be building this for my haunt this year. Thanks a ton!

Nice! A great effect for fairly cheap. I don't understand how they can charge $350 for that fright light. ridiculous! Highway Robbery!!!

great tip. these Flasher buttons/Outlet Winkers are one of those objects that are useful for all kinds of applications. last i checked ace hardware carries them. I heard a rumor that you can stack two of them in series to get a more random flicker has anyone tried/ had success with that method?

You can always just get the winker outlet and it will work the same way. Plug something into the outlet and it starts flashing. Ace Hardware use to carry them but it's been five or six years since I bought one there. Some of them flash at a different rate so look closely at the flash rate on the outlet or the button.

This one is around $5 but it only flashes 14-20 times per minute
