Building my own hi CRI light bulb

Hi guys, I’m planning to build my own light bulb with the following components:

Host option:15w

LED option: 5000k Ra90 18w

Driver option:450mA 15-43v

Do you think it would work or have any advice? I know that I may have to change the drill holes for LED fixing.

It might work. Where would you install the “Driver” aka AC to DC power supply?

Be careful when soldering the resistor or wire to the button on the lamp—i found the plastic surround to easily melt before the solder melted. Maybe it is intended to make the solder joint outside the lamp and then press it into the center hole for installation.

Which bin for the LED? Some are not so close to the BBL.

You will also need a circuit board.

Will you need a fan for cooling?

Now i used to think that i was cool,
drivin' around on fossil fuel,
until i saw what i was doin',
was drivin' down the road to ruin. --JT

I would install the power supply in the cavity inside the heat sink and just press the wires on the bottom of the bulb.
Why do I need a circuit board?
I couldn’t find the LED bin code.

Thanks for the advice.
