    Nice Tutorial! I too remember the brain melting strangeness that is E&M, I think that class caused me some PTSD and how I passed it I have no clue what so ever.

    Not much to do with motors but another fun magnet trick is to create a Halbach array which creates almost a true mono-pole. check it out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halbach_array

    I was hoping you guys would give her some strange cooking device, and you didn’t disappoint!

    I don’t think they would care, typically I see these things a few hours before we go in and take it all out. I don’t have any on me at the moment, but I will definitely take a few pictures next time I get chance. In the mean time, here’s an old analog beast, you can see all the wire wrapping and relays on the door. http://instagram.com/p/aOa-dMA91R/

    Good article! I do control system retrofits for utility generators, thankfully I have not had to extract programming from something that old, yet, most of the time we’re adding so many new components it’s easier to just redo the program from scratch. You’d be surprised what the electrical grid is running on, I’ve seen everything from vacuum tubes & pneumatics to fiber optics and modern processing.

    What are the size limitations? Can we include magnets? I’m thinking some sort of stack able and interchangable components. or scratch the magnets and make a flexible breadboard.

    Thanks Pete! That high voltage regulator will come in handy. With the guitars you work on and the high voltage, is it safe to assume you’re working on a tube amplifier? If so, did you pick out a pre-existing design or cook something up yourself? I got 3 of those beast’s under my belt so far.

    I for one totally got the gretsch comment. Reminds me of when I tried adding a strat pickup to my wife’s cello and fed it through my marshall. I thought it was awesome but something about the ensuing death glare told me she was less than enthused.

    I like mine messy, when it’s clean I have a part of my brain going “Don’t do that! You’ll make it dirty.” Said voice sounds suspiciously like my mum.
