I need a fuse (or breaker) box like that, BTW I have the same HF Tap & Die set.

Many LED's are rated in MCD - mini-Candelas, It is a measure of brightness - in a single direction, Lumens measure total light output. i.e. a 40-Watt lightbulb should put out a good 400 Lumen (probably similar to a 5-Watt LED)

Converter, and info:
