Making things with CNC is one thing but now that I’m doing electronics it has increased the “on-hand” parts and also there is temptation to make trips to local suppliers such as Active. That’s a lot of time.
I needed a 10K resistor yesterday (or the day before). I was able to save the trip by string up a bunch of smaller resistors but I can see where this is going.
So I just ordered resistors of all these sizes.
1R0 7R5 62R 3K0 56K 2M2
1R2 9R1 100R 4K3 100K 2M7
1R3 10R 120R 4K7 120K 3M0
1R5 11R 130R 5K1 180K 3M3
1R6 12R 150R 8K2 300K 3M6
1R8 15R 160R 10K 360K 4M3
2R0 16R 240R 11K 430K 4M7
2R2 18R 270R 13K 510K 5M6
2R4 20R 300R 16K 680K 9M1
2R7 24R 330R 22K 1M0 10M
3R0 30R 390R 30K 1M1 15M
4R3 43R 2K0 33K 1M2 18M
4R7 47R 2K2 36K 1M3 20M
5R6 51R 2K4 43K 1M5 22M
6R2 56R 2K7 47K 2M0 100M
I was at Princess Auto recently and noticed they have lots of motors of all sizes.
I think I have enough motors for my projects but at least we know one more place to go to get stuff quickly.
Here are a few switches, LEDs and other parts.
I pulled a ups apart for parts.
It has lots of other goodies. Heat sinks, large capacitors, large transformer, small transformers.
The cabinet itself too.
Anybody want this? Darcy@siteware.com
I just received my order of assorted drag chains and 4 conductor wire. Yippie!
Now I can rewire my mill without toasting the wiring that’s on it!
I got a few extra to hold me over till I figure out how to make them (if that’s possible). I remember Andrew Plumb pointing me to a makerbotable but I’m not sure if that will be too much hassle.
We’ll see what comes forward.
I joined this group the other day (I suppose Friday 11th, Feb, 11) since I’m anxiously awaiting my plastruder from them. It was a little tricky making sure that I had everything I needed from their site. We’ll see if I have all the stuff when I try to connect it to my CNC.
I just learned that my new extruder from MakerGear was shipped today!
I’m so excited I can’t stand it!
I’m going to attach it to my CNC mill and make plastic parts (I hope).
I don’t know how long it will take to ship to NY but I’m very excited
to receive it and get it going.
My mill is run by Mach 3. Anybody have experience with that?
I also have EMC2. What about that one?
My extruder has a stepper motor. What do I connect the stepper
controller to? A pin on parallel port?
