Don’t ask me why, but I use to have a bad habit of collecting aircraft alternators… I had a couple dozen of them. The only two non-military ones I had were from a 737. Are you willing to provide a link to the manual you found for this engine? I’m too lazy to look it up myself, but if you do, I’ll take a look to see if I ever had any alternators that bolt up to your engine. If I did use to own one, I know who owns them now and he may be willing to part with it. And it won’t cost much; I sold them to him at pretty much scrap value (I needed the room for more hording :-) A bit of trivia; the air craft alternator shafts have a narrowed down portion to act as a mechanical fuse. If something shorted out the alternator, you don’t want it to kill your engine and take down the plane.

I always get suspicious when a company doesn’t publish it’s price list unless you create an account…. for the others who don’t want to go through that trouble, basic price for MatLAB is $500, then an extra $200 for each of the tool boxes you are interested in. Oh, and don’t forget an additional $500 for Simulink….

Sooo…. no board file in the “Eagle Files” download, just the schematic? Is this an over-site or on purpose?

Wow…. when I saw that this article was about teacher appreciation, and that there were 14 comments, I thought I’d end up feeling good about trying to promote getting kids to actually do things, not argue about spelling, abbreviations, etc. I’m sorry, I didn’t even notice the abbreviation, potential spelling mistakes, etc, and that makes me a sad panda…. and I HATE pandas! I wish we could just focus our energy on promoting engineering without shunning those who have trouble communicating….

Something my Grandpa taught me a long time ago, if you are going to make a “Suicide cord” (what he called a 110V cord with two alligator clips on them; useful for powering TVs you are repairing with the back case off), make the two leads to the alligator clips two different lengths. That way, they are less likely to touch each other and short out!
No public wish lists :(
