so i have been unsatisfied with the mounting hardware available and provided with the kessel.you can in theory just hang it from the hooks that they give to you on some chain but it wasnt going to work the way i wanted it to.so i go tan idea.i looked around the local thrift stores and found myself an old school bending neck lamp.i dismanteled it and kep the neck to mount the kessel on.along the wawy i found a few hangups but using my ghetto skills worked around everything.so first off i got some old trim i dont use and cut off a piece.[img][/img]
i had to cut out a hole for the cord then pre drill a couple of holes for the mounting screws.

here you can see the little dremel work.i need this piece of woodl to attach to the bendy neck as the screws on the kessels top do not line up with that of the neck.

now i have mounted the light to the trim.[img][/img]
and then it was a matter of aligning a screw or two and there we go.
