How did you go about fixing what appears to be a break in the coil in the 3rd photo? What are you running off it? I've used them in EM laboratories, but never personally had a need for one so I'm curious.

ile start by sayig it works but my amp meter is dead so ile be poking around inside it this weekend, also i did not paint the side were the brush goes as the brush i the only thing that contacts there, infact i actually sanded the contacts till they looked knew. ile post pics in a day or 2 but for now my test was simple, used it to dim my lamp and slow my fan in my bedroom when i went to bed.

controlling ac motor speed, slowing bringing an old pice of electrical hardwire back to life, or even slowly giving power till a speaker till it dies, thems be some reasons i took on this project.

I tend to work with cardboard and paper a lot.

Here's my latest creation:

My ghetto headphone amp with a case made from scrap aluminum and wood biggrin.gif, if someone is interested i have the CAD desing of both PCBs.
Sounds surprisingly good even with high impedance cans, maybe i can improve the design adding a op-amp acting as a buffer rolleyes.gif

I had to mount my SSD's somewhere without the HDD cages to fit my rad in the front. So, I did what I had to do.


RAM? This Rams all the Competition.

IS there any kind of prize ?










Not shown bay cooler and pump. Ghettoed pump and resevoir for the upper GPU a r9 380 and probably did not get a good look at the Wind Force cooler off a dead 7870 and placed on a R9 285. Been running like that for 3 months now. May be I will get a Corsair 900D but then there are other things to spend $350 on

I decided paper was a bit hazardous.

So, recycled foam inserts from graphics cards boxes will do.

Monsters hidden from view...


And here they are with foam inserts keeping them stable and also helping to dampen some noise. Will be adding a foam filter soon - the suction is real.
