  • Product COM-12021 | about 5 months ago

    Are these adhesive backed? If not, is there a suggested means of mounting them?

    For when you have to solder 0 gauge wire.

  • Product TOL-11763 | about 11 months ago

    Or perhaps SporkFun?

  • News - How to Build a Building | last year

    I see a space marked “climbing area” next to the breakroom… Is that what it sounds like?

  • Product COM-10191 | about a year ago

    In a purely hypothetical question, how would one go about fixing this wire if the power wires were to separate from the luminescent section?

    In retrospect, he should not have attempted this while wearing a red shirt.

  • Product COM-08654 | about 2 years ago

    Is there any sort of screening/shielding that could be used to render the laser not/less harmful to human eyes while still maintaining a respectable range?

  • Product PRT-10965 | about 2 years ago

    It worked! Thank you so much! I actually started wrong, and ended up mangling the little bumps on one side, but then the other side came up nicely. I thought the mechanism holding it in place was different. Anyways, thank you again!

    P.S. The data sheet is wrong. It appears to be for a crimp connector with rows of 20 pins.

    Hey, anyone have any experience uncrimping these?

    Let’s just say a small curiosity accident occurred when they arrived.

  • Product TOL-10997 | about 2 years ago

    I just got a set of these… Either they have a defect or I’m using them improperly. Whenever I try to open them up at a rate of more than, say, 1mm/sec, the reading suddenly jumps a couple of mm/inches (tried it on both, same problem). I also swapped out the battery in the calipers for the extra one provided; no change. Am I supposed to clean them or something? Can they not be opened quickly? Or do I just have a defective pair?
