  • I’m working with andyinabox. By ‘sticky’, we mean it doesn’t release when the applied voltage (30V) is removed. The stickiness was present with a 15V power supply as well, so I don’t believe it has to do with over-saturating the coil (I’m also not sure if that’s possible).
    When the solenoid is stuck, a very gentle nudge is all it takes to release it… we’re considering simply trying a stronger spring. But it seems weird that it sticks at all.

No public wish lists :(
