A very fun and makerly weekend it was. Eric and Darcy looped us into the global synchronous hackathon with live video feeds from 9 or 10 hacker spaces including kwartzlab as we hacked throughout the weekend. Thanks guys for setting up for the event, and to Ben for the sandwiches. I got a lot of stuff done and had a great time.
Here’s a vid of the coil winder counter I cobbled together this weekend. I need to make coils in a repeatable way for the animeyes solenoids and this is just the ticket. Interestingly, none of the parts are mine: Karl gave me the counter, James gave me the microswitch, and Ed had the wallwart. kwartzlab magic. Thanks guys.
