Final flashlight (tech post #9)

I finally finished my flashlight! I really like how it turned out. I decided to change up my flashlight design. It looks wayyy different. Sawing the pipes were very hard. At first I didn’t get it. I was doing way too hard and aggressively. Plastic was flying everywhere! It took me a while to get the hang of it. I realized I was forgetting something. THE PLUGS! The plugs secure the pipe in place so it doesn’t roll when you saw. I realized this when my pipe was rolling. I then, the saw started to go all over the place. I noticed it wasn’t in the slot. The slot makes sawing so much easier.  Then I got a nice clean cut. I then cut my wires according to the storyline. The storyline is how you know how long your wires have to be.  It is on your diagram, and you cut the wires according to the storyline ON the diagram I drew. It was a perfectly fit! I then soldered. I thought I was done, so I flicked on the switch, so the light would go on. No luck. What did I do wrong? I can’t think of anything. I then found out my solder was blocking the circut.  I had to de-solder and re-solder, and then it worked!
