Toastmasters Timing Lights - Simple and Easy DIY - Part 3

(This is the continuation from Part 2 - Toastmasters Timing Lights)

  • Convenient and Easy-to-use

    I'm almost tempted to say any idiot could operate this unit because every one should be familiar with the parts that make it up.

    I even stuck a sticker-label saying "This is NOT a Toy" just to emphasize my point to whoever wants to play with it. It is THAT easy to use.

    Because of the three independent switches, I suppose the operation of this unit is much more intuitive than that of the old unit with the rotary switch.

Toastmasters Timing Lights - Simple and Easy DIY - Part 2

(This is the continuation from Part 1 - Toastmasters Timing Lights)

After laying out the parts of the Do-It-Yourself Toastmasters timing lights device, it's now time to assemble the device.

You don't need to prepare any electrical tapes or fastening tools. There is no soldering, no taping, no splicing, no wiring, no gluing and no attaching of any other electrical parts.

Toastmasters Timing Lights - Simple and Easy DIY

Thus far, the club is still using the improvised speech timing cards that I made, but with a Demo Meeting coming up which our club is sponsoring, I wanted something more impressive.

The old Toastmasters Signal Lights that was assembled for me is still gathering dust in a corner. I don't think I may be able to have it repaired anytime soon.

Then I thought, does a timing lights device really need to be built from scratch, just like the one that I requested to be assembled? It's google search time once again and here's one I saw from the Bayan Baru Toastmasters Club.
