Re: VHS or hi8 recorder..

Just a quick thought, what is the standard voltage used by the guts of a home VCR - that's the voltage after the power xfrmr and regulators? If it's low enough, wouldn't you be able to adapt a home model? Or is the added ruggedness and movement compensation of a portable unit necessary? <p>As I said...

Re: Charging a coil

The automotive world has a product that you are most likely looking for. I don't know the name offhand, but it is an oboard computer with all kinds of accelerometers, etc. that will calculate horsepower and more. It has been around for a few years now. I have seen them used in their "head to head sh...

Re: WAV file format

Took a quick look at one through a standard TEXT editor - I use TrekText because I like Star Trek - and what a mess those files are!The file I looked at started with RIFF (it was a riff-wav file) and was followed by all kinds of letters, numbers and symbols, none of which I could make any sense of i...

Re: Fax and ring signal problem

Ok, so your all in one fax/espresso machine picks up on the second line, marked by the distinctive ring of short ring -short ring -long silence. Does it "malfunction" fairly soon (several seconds) after you pick up the phone or will it wait a minute or more before going off hook? If it is the former...

Re: Source for 796 kHz oscillator coils

If I recall correctly, they are the IMF cans for an AM radio. If I am wrong, I'm sure we'll find out. As for the rest of your question, I'll let the big boys take over.<p>CeaSaR

TraxMaker help

I downloaded the student version of CircuitMaker and wanted to see what a circuit would look like on a board. When I tried to export the PCB Netlist, Circuitmaker couldn't find TraxMaker. Is TraxMaker only available with the PRO version? If it is, what would be a free/inexpensive compatible program?...

Transistor pinout

As I mentioned in an earlier post, it has been a long time since I actually picked up and made anything electronic, so... I am trying to remember what the pinout of 2n3904/06 and 2n2222 are. Holding the transistor upside down (leads up in the air) with the flat toward you, are the leads C B E ? Than...

Re: Bedini motor

Stephen,<p>No doubt they all work to some degree, but as you said they are usually impractical as the gains are so small as to not be of any real use. The law of diminishing returns as it were, and they all take some form of energy created elsewhere to start and run to the point of "exhaustion". The...

Re: Bedini motor

They (Jamie and Adam) pulled several "free energy" plans off the net and built all of them one by one. The first one was some bizarre scheme to capture space waves and convert them to energy. The test had 2 motors hooked to singular lithium bateries, one with the space wave gadget (looked like 3 tra...
