  • With my new Annihilator IV I should be ready for another Night at the Museum. But if I DO have to run, the coolant hose may prove problematic.

  • I bought four of these with the intent of trying to straighten them. Of the four, one was probably usable without any attention, two were pretty bad, and one was awful (only one came with mounting screws for the Aruino). I tried simply placing one of these on an 12" x 12" x ½" aluminum plate in the toaster oven and waiting until I could see the plastic settle flat. I started at 200 degrees F for 10 minutes, and worked up in increments of 50 degrees F until I reached 500. At the lower temperatures (300-400), the warp actually got worse. At 500 degrees for 10 minutes, portions of the plastic started to melt unevenly, even though the breadboard holder hadn’t flattened. What ultimately worked for me was to heat the aluminum plate to 500 degrees, remove it from the oven, place the plastic breadboard holder on it, place three chunks of 12" x 3" x 1" aluminum on the plastic, and let the sandwich cool for several hours (you can’t simply use a second large aluminum plate to form the sandwich because of the raised standoffs that hold the Aruino).

No public wish lists :(
