Not if I should be impressed or disturbed!

That's a sweet setup.
I don't see close-up so good myself these days and need reading glasses so liking the massive magnifying lens :)

Two jars of hand bones and another jar of finger bones ........

OK so I am mostly impressed :)

I did not have a problem with my Lantern Posts but I was double careful knowing about this thread.

I did swap out a Lantern for a Torch which worked ok but only after I had a leg snapped off one Torch when I pulled it from the LED tower wall.
That was disappointing as I pulled slowly with no sideways movement.

Not sure my soldering skills are up to a fix :(
I have been lucky so far.
I learned to solder in electrical shop in 1969. I was a little rusty. The skill came back with just a little practice. My big issue was I don't see as well ;)
Some of the tools I purchased to help the girls with jewelry crafting came in handy.

I added a longer brass rod to a Harbor Freight easy hands so I could sit up straight. The clamps work as a heat sink. I can have the light and magnifier if my eye glasses are not enough.The longer rod helps with the light if I use the Drill press with my water bath and Diamond bits.

I like the modularity of the swappable LED features. I think just better attention to detail is what is needed.

Sadly, the last few Kickstarters have had issues due to lack of attention to detail. (Scalegate, fit for castle pieces, etc.) I'm hoping with KS5 they do better.

I do hope more internal structure will fix this.

I think if I get any more LED socket items I will be supergluing around the sockets ASAP, maybe that will help the problems.

Call to DF, if possible, can you make LEDS one piece to avoid this, I do not think switching LEDs is worth them breaking. I know in some places it might be needed, but I see the one piece braziers, LED floors and tavern tables working fine when my friend is having trouble with his arcane orbs.
They couldn't be made one piece, but I think a design that will fix this issue will be a mounting for the socket.
Exactly... any place or feature that is/has a pressure or stress point should be braced or supported to prevent movement, and especially from the opposite direction of the expected force.

Basic engineering and design 101...
