    I everyones...I buy them on Ebay. When i can get some leds that match my
    optical/electrical requirements, they're often in a clear package. I frost
    them using high grit sand paper. Any quicker method you know? TIA for any
    replies.

    Perhaps try a solvent that attacks the plastic? Correction fluid thinners
    perhaps?
     
  3. Tape up the leads and stick them in a spark plug cleaner (like a mini
    sand blaster).

    Reminds me of a gadget my boss built 50 years ago.
    Put a tiny paint can on top of a phono motor. Filled with
    abrasive grit. Just turn in on and poke stuff down in the rotating
    grit.
