Re: Detecting a magnet... from a distance.

Re: Detecting a magnet... from a distance.

That price of $1,200 seems a tad high for that chip.
Should be: https://www.amazon.com/TMR2102P-Linear- ... 611&sr=8-1

Re: Microwave oven transformer... reversed.

Amazingly versatile transformer, that is. Wind it for whatever you like!

Re: Ink Drowned my AIO Printer
