EDIT// Need to fix some random CSS and the menus but its looking pretty good!
Built a mini Strandbeest kit this evening. Picked up the kit off ebay for $16. Was a nice break from building electronics. Will make a video for it when the camera is charged.
Spent part of Saturday cleaning up the old Tektaonix 465 scope. Looks much better now. I reseated all the transistors and boards I could find in it but it still acts a bit flakey. Sometimes it will function perfectly then other times the sweep will start to go funky. Power supply might be the culprit.
I received a Tektaonix 465 last week from my friend Ben.
It is an old 100MHz analog scope. So far it all works. It needs some serious cleaning and some parts need to be reseated (had to wack the case to get it turned on) so I will do a tear down video this weekend.
I had to install the mail handling on the server. If you sent me an email the past 2 weeks I probably did not receive it.
After 6 hours longhornengineer.com is back online! Lost only a couple posts to.
Changing hosts….be back soon!
This years San Mateo Maker Faire was even more awesome then usual. The amount of new and interesting makers and stuff to see was virtually overwhelming. Even after two long days I still was unable to see everything. I was able to upload all my images to my twitter account which you can check out on the right sidebar.
In other news I will be finishing up the Tommy Pinball system in the next week or so. Project first board should be ready for testing in a month. I will be looking for beta testers and programmers in a month so either send my an email or comment on this post if you are interested.
