Talking cheap lighted nock

I was on you tube a few days and saw these went home and made three of them they work great and they are about a third the price of a lumenock. http://www.youtube.com/results? search_query=lighted+nock&search=Search

Yeah, I like it.
I wonder how much those things weigh.
The guy drilling through a nock while holding it with his fingers was a bit scary. If it were me with my luck I'd run that bit into my flesh....

the ones i used actually have the same battery as the lumenock not sure of the weight. The battery is mirage 3v. I didnt notice any change in arrow flight out to 30 and 40 yards.

I think it looks like an accident waiting to happen. I would think that drilling through the knock would weaken it. Last summer I had an arrow explode on me and I believe that it was due to a cracked knock. About 2 months I notices a crack in another knock. It might just be me but I wouldnt alter a knock in anyway. That is why I think it is an accident waiting to happen.

I was at Gander mountain last night and looked for those battery/lights for bobbers and they didn't have them. Who carries those things ? I think I'm going to make one of those up for kicks and play around with it.

I use Easton Axis for hunting. I'm also wondering if the battery/light fits into an Axis shaft. Those are really small diameter...

Any thoughts ?
