    The toner pumps from the production machines makes for monster air pumps. Needs some PWM to control those beasts other wise the fish will get blow-waved.
    No sense in caring around a car battery on the beach...
    Will even pump fluids.

    Re: Electronics

    Anyone else out there playing with Arduino?

    Took me 2 weeks straight to get a bootloader onto a blank chip.
    Well at least I know how to use avrdude and all about FUSE bits and stuff.
    Got a batch of Atmel ATmega 328P with non standard fuse bit settings.
    That will keep u busy for a while.
    Very frustrating if all the YouTube clips shows how easy it is and i just cant seem to get it to work.

    Whatever

    Well this was sparked by BC's tester reply...

    Here is some vids of me playing with copier motors.
    Those brushless motors are potent it provides a feed back to maintain constant speed thru a MCU.

    Re: Electronics

    Hi...i would like to share my stuff also. I made an automated tea infuser. It uses the two Canon primary wire cleaner motors and two DPST switches to drive Mita lens reduction gears. It drops the mechanism into two teacups then cycles once per second vertically 40mm. I wanted to be able to preset a timer in which the machine would retract from the cups, but never did figure that part out.

    If i get the chance il send you a pic from a wah pedal i made from scratch for my guitar
    using some parts from our beloved MFP's.
