Re: DIY pancake slip ring

Sorry to be responding so late, but I've been having a lot of family issues going on. :sad: I don't know how big this ring has to be.

Re: Trying to find / download a service manual...

Yeah... but the need for a great manual site is always there... I mostly wanted to put the BAMA site out there... Nice find. But, the site is just starting out. So, what they have, is not a lot. And it seems to be mostly Test Equipment, and Ham Radio Schematics. I've come across some other sites, t...

Re: SPAM Attack

ARGH!!!!

It's bad enough that I get Phishing attacks on my home phone line, and even my cell phone.
But this is just all out harassment!

I may have to go off the grid, just to get away from it!

Re: Help to find Battery

Hmmm.........

I've been finding 1.2V 1/3 AAA 140ma Cells.

Could you stack these into stacks of 3 = 3.6V, and then parallel 3 stacks together to up the amperes?

Quote Johnny Five: "More Input!" What is the device that this battery pack is in? Are there numbers on the battery pack? What is the physical size of the pack? Is it NICAD, NIMH, LION?
