  • At this month’s Mensa meeting, the Sparkfun contingent was easy to identify.

  • Has anyone used one of these? I am looking for a linear position readout for building CNC machines. The data sheet is somewhat vague about accuracy. Any idea about the accuracy/repeatability of these linear pots? Thanks for any replies.

  • Nice project! For those interested in more information Google “Autonomous Surface Vessel” or go to the website for the AUVSI: http://www.auvsi.org/Home/ and take a look at the student competitions at http://www.auvsifoundation.org/foundation/competitions/ . Cool stuff and a large amount of high-grade info to sift through.

No public wish lists :(
