Re: Shopjimmy

I bought a board set, main board and power supply, for a Vizo a few years ago. It was around $30 for the set. The new main board had an issue. They replaced both boards and did not want the first set back.
I guess if you have a factory direct contact the real cost is pennies!

Re: Greetings!

Happy holiday to all that are still hanging around here. That's 365 more sunrises and sunsets behind us, and my sincere hopes for many more.

Re: Odd Commercial Products.........

I just realize now that many years ago our family must have had a very advanced toaster.

When the bread was half done you....

Flipped opened the door
and
Flopped over the bread.

I can still see the stylized 'JK ' brand on the door....😏

Re: Is Nuts and Volts dead ?

Yesterday I said to my wife "WoW, we sure got a lot of holiday cards today" as I was busy opening them.
They were the ones she put out for pickup earlier.... :sad:

Re: Is Nuts and Volts dead ?

Well I just got a new issue a few days ago. Was it very late...or very early? As an observation, are the N&V magazine issues to blame for the poor response of members on the forum? Is it a too-busy, other direction, apathetic mindset? Many other forums seem to be more active and they do not have an ...

Yes it is a Tesla or HF generator by the look of the parts. As soon as I get the 'stuff' I'll update the post.

Well as soon as the person determines if he will get a refund, he will make a decision.
Maybe I can get him to take some pictures before the decision is made. In all probability It will be landing on my bench soon.
Thanks for the input!

Re: WAT IZZ IT?

Yes, that's like the cheap FO light that was included with the mysterious other stuff which was the focus of the post.

Maybe it was a scam, but the package did contain real stuff. The mystery is, what it is.

Re: WAT IZZ IT?

Hi CeaSaR Yes, it needs an enclosure but since it all looks like floor sweepings, there was none. I think you are in the ball park about the magnetic field, but because the globe has that single metal contact on the bottom, there are small value caps, and that 4" long wire tail from the coil end tha...

Re: WAT IZZ IT?

Good try J.T., but no cigar!
I am very familiar with plasma globes, and this is NOT a plasma globe.
As I mentioned in the post, the glass globe is solid, with the little flakes in the glass.
There is no 'inside' since it is all solid glass.

WAT IZZ IT?

Being in electronics since day 3, we get dumped on for all sorts of odd problems. Recently, a friend dropped off a rather interesting 'gizmo' and a story to go with it. He ordered a 'fiber optic light kit' quite some time ago and just got around to getting into it. What he found in the box is a bit ...
