Thanks for all the tips guys. The light shades are 24" HO and you can see how small that little yellow LED is. The #11 is in case I want to end the torture.Laugh

  

 

 

I created a jig for mine.  I cut a hole the size of the LED lead spacing for a T3 LED and then countersunk it to stick the hat in.  (About 1/10th an inch...but I use 7/64" to give me some clearance) 

You could also solder one leg to the hat and use the hat as a conductor and only feed on leg up the inside hat hole (insulated)  I had less success that way
