These things have been a little slow growing, but the beans, well that is another story. The beans have grown like 10cm overnight. That is crazy.
Well its not really wood carving, more like toy making. With the help of a mini CNC, bandsaw, drill and die grinder I knocked up these wooden toy guns for my grandsons, Lucas, Keyte and Ezra. They are a little agricultural, but should be appreciated by the boys.
If anyone would like the tool paths, I designed this in Vectric Asipre and I can export the files in DXF, EPS, AI and SVG for importing into your own design software. Just shoot me an email.
So yesterday I got to designing a RF Sampler for my little spec an, and one thing led to another and so i connected it to the FeelTech function generator, fired up a sine wave and with the maximum amount of data points over the smallest span the software would allow I took a look at how clean the signal is. Not sure about those 2 spurs, but if they are real and not artifacts, that’s not a good thing.
Its been a long time since i have used the mini cnc machine, but i got it out last night and attempted to machine up a case for the HT project. After getting the tool paths actually sorted out right and discovering that I had no sharp drills other than a 1mm one and well part way thought it broke, but i got enough done to know that the design is actually ok. So this one is scraptonium, but the next one should be much better.
Not the computer code kind, not even the hardware kind, but the stupid kind that keep trying to hack into by server and blog. Its a never ending game of wack a mole. So after been hit with a couple of big hack attacked in the last few weeks, I upgraded the security for the blog and then after the same douche bag hit me again, I managed to lock myself out of the blog. LOL not to worry, restore everything from backup takes a while 10 mins to do, but I lost a couple of posts. I only do weekly backups. Its not like this blog is anything other than a bunch of dribble from me and if i lose a post or two, its no big deal. So anyway, everything is back to normal and should mean I cannot lock myself out every again LOL.
Well its been coming for a while and today is the day that its been achieved. I am no longer a radio amateur. I am an electronics enthusiast. Yep, I am done with the people. When you have groups that lie, cheat and exploit for their own end, get exposed time and time again and other groups to gutless or hamstrung to be able to deal with it in a manner that will fix the issue once and for all, I figure, why bother. I am better than all this and so I am out.
I have some really good radio projects in the pipeline that will be released over the next 2 to 12 months. I am currently working on a 5 watt DSB hand held. Tonight I have laid out the Transmitter board, I have some fixes to make to the receiver board and I can sent those off to china to get made. I hope to have the whole project competed by the end of the year. And having quit just about all social media, I should be able to, with some luck, achieve that goal.
