ECE stock room website.

last night at the mini-meetup it seemed like a lot of you were interested in what the universities electrical engineering stock room had to offer for parts.

here's a link to their website
this shows the hours that they are open and a somewhat ancient inventory list showing most of what Brent has available, and generally what the price is going to be.

NOTE: they only accept cash or check, so be ready for that.

Mini-Meet Reminder : Tonight @ Bacchus Pub

A sweet table sign provided by Travis Hyyppa! Now people might find us at the pub ;)

Just a friendly reminder if you are interested in getting to know more about the Bozeman Makerspace.

For full details visit our Meetup page here!

We are hosting biweekly mini meets for the Bozeman Makerspace. Come one, come all for festive discussions with fellow makers from around the Gallatin Valley. Beyond the typical ramblings about electronics, fire, and building cool stuff, we want to hear about your projects.

We typically meet in the area between the Bacchus Pub and Ted Montana Grill.

We would love to have everyone with interest attend!

Soldering is Easy!

Found this in my RSS feeds today. Definitely some good info in it, and one of the formats available allows it to be easily printed as a comic book. Given all the excitement around The World's Most Useless Machine last Saturday, it might be worth cranking out a few dozen of these for our next big event.

From the website (http://www.ai-class.com)

"The class runs from Sept 26 through Dec 16, 2011. While this class is being offered online, it is also taught at Stanford University, where it continues to be a popular intro-level class on AI. For the online version, the instructors aim to offer identical materials, assignments, and exams, and to use the same grading criteria. Both instructors will be available for online discussions."

Homeless Speaker

I did a two layer treatment for the grille on a wood compression fit (fancy way of saying I jammed it in there) grille.
Muslin for the first layer and really thin box pattern net for the top layer.
The frame is made of pine and pocket hole screwed together.
I stapled one layer at a time.
The name badges I made but screwed up and made twice the size I wanted. When I get a chance I'll remake them to proper size and go over what I did to make them.

Festival Projects : Build Day

A festive day of hacking and building will occur on this day. A group build of one or more Thermins will take place during this meetup. If that doesn't peak your interest feel free to bring your own project to work on, or just come and have fun conversation with fellow makers from the Gallatin Valley.

Update: We made a Theremin... ?

More work on the Scrambler!

Pictures! I haven't updated in a while, but have managed to put some time into the pedal.

Really, there's not a lot to say this time. I managed to solder everything in without significant injury. I also mocked up the housing, stuck everything together with alligator clips, and fired it up for a quick test. As expected, it sounds weird (see video.)

Next steps:
- prime and paint the enclosure
- finish the off-board wiring (including power switch & LED)
- stick the whole thing together and hope I haven't broken something in the interim.
