A tongue in cheek reference to perpetuating a long-standing family joke. A (approx.) $10 LED base that does the usual RGB cycle, but also can stay on one color. The advantage of this base over the other cheapo ones is that this can run either by AC or batteries, plus the lights are better. Also, the cheapo bases only cycle through RGB.
I think that’s an excellent idea…besides proofgrade, be able to buy accessories/supplies etc. Plus some items this way could be sourced to make sure they fit well with PG (e.g. slot width matched to PG thickness for a lighted base).
The least expensive (cheapo) ones are the battery operated ones from here; aliexpress.com Just do a search for LED menu. This one comes with two thin acrylic panels (Jules surmised that they might be polycarbonate)…I tried one in the GF and it looks horrible.
The other one came from Amazon. You have to supply the acrylic panel (this is the one I used for the photos in this post). It can run on batteries or has an AC adapter.
My OCD porcine brain couldn’t help but notice that you might want the possessive apostrophe in ‘moms’. Whether it belongs before or after the ‘s’ is up to your family’s long standing joke. And in our house it was called “mom’s slophouse” so that people wouldn’t think she was a lush.
