  • News - Snow Plowing with Robotic… | about 3 years ago

    I have been working on building one of these myself for the last 3 years. mine only has 4 wheels but they are all 4 run by incredibly high torque wheelchair motors. also has a motorized broadcast spreader for salt. I live in Iowa and dont get NEARLY the amount of snow you guys do but it certainly was born from a see a need fill a need mentality.

  • News - Solder of the Ages | about 3 years ago

    I would like to bring up a great alternative that I have used for years. FLUX. I have used flux on EVERY soldering job I have done within the last 10 years and am always happy with the results. I have noticed that the rosin core does degrade over time, but if you use flux on every project it no longer becomes an issue. I get stronger connections with less solder and in much tighter places because of flux. I bought a large tub-o-flux that is kester brand a LONG time ago and it is still in great shape. heat it up slightly, and you can easily pack some in a clean hypodermic needle to get to small places. to use later with the tip covered of course, roll it between your hands slowly it will pick up the heat and come right out with no problems.

No public wish lists :(
