    Circuit Help

    So does that mean I connect both grounds of the adapters together so there is are 3 total outputs (ground, +, and -)? Sorry if this is dumb question. I found this article: How to Build a Robot Tutorial - Society of Robots Is that kind of what you are explaining? I haven't worked with positive...

    Circuit Help

    So just to be clear for all the points in the circuit that have the ground symbol, I just hook those up to the - output of the wallwart? Yeah idk why this circuit asks for 14v instead of 12v. I'll try 12v, I really don't think it will matter enough to cause problems.

    Circuit Help

    Drawing large amounts of stand by power won't be an issue because the whole thing will just be sitting on a table. I'm not too concerned with efficiency or power usage because it's not intended to be portable. I'll try the wall warts though. Those sound like a better idea. I completely...

    Circuit Help

    So that's how it works. Thank you! I couldn't find that anywhere. :D I'll order the parts later this week and get to building it. I may have some more questions later if something doesn't work but I should be good for now. :) I'm going to try and use a computer power supply in place of the...

    Circuit Help

    Sorry about not rotating it. I fixed it. Didn't notice that only 2 were through hole either. I had hit through hole to filter the results or at least I thought I did. That narrows things down a lot. That's interesting, I didn't know the 1/2 referred to only using half the chip. All of the...

    Circuit Help

    I'm trying to build the circuit attached. I'm having a little bit of trouble with the amp side (red outlined section) though and finding the correct ICs. I looked on Digikey and Mouser but am not sure which to get. The diagram says that I need the TL062. However when I search for that I get...

    Flux Recommendation?

    Thanks! I was looking for that thread. Which company/brand is that flux? That's what I was trying to figure out. Is it amtech or kester?

    Flux Recommendation?

    I bought some flux on the forums here awhile ago and it worked great but now I am out. The syringe didn't have a name on it or anything so I don't know what company made it. It worked really well with surface mount soldering and non-surface mount. It was a no-clean kind. Do you guys have any...

    FS: Jib Drivers 1.25A & 1.8A

    Can you adjust the current on them or are they fixed at either 1.25a or 1.8a?

    How to tell diodes apart?

    I think you misunderstood me. I should have been clearer. I know we don't work with voltage but if it doesn't start to lase at 3v 80-100ma then it should start for sure at 5v 80ma. It's either blu ray or red so it has to be one of those two voltages. I wasn't saying that I would keep...

    How to tell diodes apart?

    Yeah the diode, I think is red, has 3 pins. Maybe it's a bluray then. I'm really not sure. I know I had 2 phr sleds and I took the blu-ray diodes from them. I have no idea what this one is. It looks much more blue on the lens than any of my 6x or phr blu-rays diodes look (all of those are...

    How to tell diodes apart?

    I'm trying the glass trick now. By yellow do you mean a goldish color? If so then I think I have 1 blu-ray and 1 red. Which would make sense since I believe these both came from a phr sled. Do you know the exact name of the red laser diode and how many mw is typical for it?

    How to tell diodes apart?

    I put a few diodes in axiz modules and mistakenly never labeled them. Now I have a bunch of axiz modules and I don't know what diodes are in them. Is there anyway to test them to find out which diodes are in which without burning them out? I know they are either phr diodes or red diodes...

    Using a Husky 9 Led Flashlight as a host?

    I'll give it a try. If I can't shove a flexdrive in there, I'll make it driverless.

    Using a Husky 9 Led Flashlight as a host?

    There isn't even enough room for a lava driver? Great build by the way. :) Good idea with the spacers too. Is it easy to screw the laser assembly out? On the hosts I have it's very difficult to get led assembly out. I think it might be even harder once if I but a laser setup inside. I was...

    Using a Husky 9 Led Flashlight as a host?

    I have a couple of 9 led flashlights that look like this: They say husky on the side but you can't see it in that picture. Are these suitable hosts for axiz modules? Does anyone make heatsinks for them on the forums? I think I saw a thread where someone was selling them in kits with...

    Need schematic for 250vac to 9vdc

    lol yes it's meant to power my WF. I want a second power supply for it. Let me think about it. I was considering building one but 20 bucks is a good price.

    Need schematic for 250vac to 9vdc

    Does anyone have a schematic for a power supply capable of dropping 25vac to 9dc at 1amp? I'm not the best at making schematics so if someone could make one, that would be great.:thanks:

    Sound controlled laser spirograph?

    I will. Thanks for the tip. :)

    Sound controlled laser spirograph?

    Hadn't thought of that. :o Does DX have any sound controlled spiros?
