Building a veg light

I received the HGL-240H-C1750A driver yesterday. The 4PACK-QB132-V2-MOLEX-4000 QB132 V2 Quantum Boards - V2 4000K showed up today. I have aluminum angle to make a frame. I have been thinking of building two separate frames 15x30" with lights end to end and then having the 2 frames end to end with a hing so it could fold back on itself and have the 4 boards square 30x30". Then it could be long like a fluorescent fixture or folded and square depending on where I want to put it. It seems like it should be easy to do?

Sure. Hinge one side, and then do some sort of latch on the other.


Looking back, you’ll use a lot of extra aluminum making it exactly that size. The boards are only 11" or so right? So would make a lot more sense for light to be as wide as board when they’re all in a row.


The boards are 9x12" I will draw up a couple designs and see what looks good. 12+12+6" space would be 30" long. Then the other way 9+9+6" spacing would be 24". Just need to figure out how to hing for a 6" spacing when folded. then it would end up 24x30". I built a Parallelogram for my binoculars and used 1/4" foam board to make a template before I cut up the aluminum. I will do the same with the frame.
