Re: Amazing soldering tool

I'll bet it does all it says, I'll also bet you don't want to try soldering anything on a populated circuit board.<p>You kind of have to look at the people depicted on the commercial. Do we really burn ourselves like that? If we are like them, then we don't need to be around electricity, heat or wat...

Re: PC Fan Speed Control

Thanks to Engineer 1138 for the simple and effective circuit to control fan speed.<p>It has been completed, installed and tested. There was a minor alteration and the addition of an LED to finish off the project.<p>It works just the way I wanted so it's a good design. :cool:

Re: do we need a moderator??

Don't you have enough rules to follow without a forum cop watching every keystroke?<p>Some of the mods I've experienced act as if their actions will go on a big report card and that report card will keep them from going to hell.<p>I say nay to another 'big bother' figure breathing down my neck.

Re: whitfield stove catching fire

It would probably be a good idea to see what is causing the feed auger to bind.<p>Are you using a different pellet than normal. Does the auger seem to be sloppy on the shaft, indicating a bad bearing or bushing?

Re: PC Fan Speed Control

I don't want to hear the fan while I'm trying to sleep. <p>During heavy charge time I don't care how fast it runs or how much noise it makes. The heavy charging takes place in the day time. The charger is growling whi...

There are 6, 6 volt, deep cycle batteries with a capacity of 350 amphours each.<p>When charging these guys at 45 amps a lot of heat is made and a lot of gases are created.<p>This needs to get out of the box and the box needs to ...

Re: PC Fan Speed Control

Thanks for the curcuit. I like it and it looks like it will do the job.<p>I only have one LM34 in my parts bin so I will use the diodes. I think I have a handful of 324s so, all in all, I have enough to get started today.<p>One question I have, R4, the fan speed resister. Is that up to my discretion...
