Indicator lights!!!

The first mod that I added to my Makerbot was a set of indicator lights, one for the platform, one for the extruder. They're a pair of 12V HO scale train streetlamps, that I've wired in to the MOSFET output on the extruder board. I have them wired in paralell with the relays that provide high-current power to the heaters. To go along with them, I've temporarily added some foam to hold them in place and indicate which one's which, but I plan to print a better bracket soon!
