Collin's Lab: Wire Rack Attack!

Once the growing sprawl of electronic parts starts showing up in your dreams, you know you've got some tidying up to do. It can be a challenge to spend quality hacking time on humdrum sorting & parts organization, but of course, in the long run it's a no-brainer. I've yet to discover a magical motivator* for organization. But if you can put aside a few minutes for the cause, consider installing an uber-simple wire rack using plain old curtain brackets - perfect for taming those wild spools that roam your workbench. *sadly, impromptu desk-naps do not help.

Collin's Lab: Custom Fit Earbuds

I've used quite a variety of sound-isolating personal audio gear; around-ear cans, in-ear buds, as well as active noise-canceling models. All of these posed problems for me in one way or another. Most often, it came down to issues with comfort and how well each design could maintain a good seal on my substantial noggin. I was excited to find out that there are custom-fit headphone services out there, but my enthusiasm withered upon learning the price for such a thing. Thankfully, I did find a DIY custom-mold earplug kit available for relatively cheap. So, I dug out my old pair of Shure E2C earbuds, ordered myself up a kit, and then put together a very simple but satisfyingly effective project.

Also - for those who prefer more static imagery in their tutorials, I added this project to the very excellent Make: Projects site. Check the relevant step-by-steps here.

Tiny Yellow House: "Boxy Lady" vending cart microcabin

If you're from the woods in the Northeast USA, you know that summer is all about forts, cabins, treehouses, and other alternative shelters. If you haven't known the pleasure of these delightful creations, let Derek "Deek" Diedricksen introduce you his world of microcabins in this episode of Tiny Yellow House, a MAKEcation Special Edition! Join Deek in the Massachusetts woods for a tour of his "Boxy Lady" vending cart microcabin complete with build notes inspired by his book, Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts, and Whatever Else We Could Squeeze in Here. Subscribe to the MAKE Podcast in iTunes, download the m4v video directly, or watch it on YouTube. Gareth reviewed Deek's book not to long ago on the site: The book is a hoot and an inspiration, crammed with Deek's designs -- from practical to pie in the sky -- for "micro-houses," small backyard retreats, kid forts, treehouses, and other no-cost/low-cost outbuildings. The emphasis here is on fun and clever use of recycled materials. Deek did all the hand-lettering and the book is obsessively illustrated with wonderfully wacky cartoons and design drawings. As he himself describes it in the video: "A carpal tunnel-inducing barrage of dime store pen sketches."

Circuit Skills: Surface Mount Devices, sponsored by Jameco Electronics

I've tried my hand at quite a few different methods for circuit building — breadboard, perfboard, custom etching, even some boardless freeform wiring, but somehow, I never got around to using surface-mount parts (until now, that is). Understandably, many balk at the idea of soldering the infamously tiny SMD packages, but once equipped with the right tools, and a bit of patience, you too can solder your own teeny-tiny circuitry. Subscribe to the MAKE Podcast in iTunes, download the m4v video directly, or watch it on YouTube and Vimeo. As my first build in the format, I decided to go with a simple and familiar schematic — the light-sensitive oscillator (aka "phototheremin") as originally described in Forrest Mims' book Timer, Op Amp and Optoelectronic Circuits & Projects. Once I got the hang of securing each part in place for soldering, the rest of the process was more or less straightforward, and the circuit worked the first time I tested it. Though I didn't run into any major snags, I'll likely do at least a couple things differently next time. Firstly, I used .032" diameter solder for the build, but .015" would have deposited an appropriately smaller amount of molten solder on each pad. Also, I would like to try using some sticky solder flux instead of adhesive gum, to keep the parts in place. Happily, the SO-8 pattern protoboard I used was a perfect fit for this little test-build. A few of these boards, plus a variety of SMD parts and related tools, can be picked up as a bundle from Jameco. If you decide to have a go at building your own electronic tinyness, we'd love to check out the results! Read more | Permalink | Comments | Read more articles in Electronics | Digg this!

Circuit Skills: Perfboard Prototyping, sponsored by Jameco Electronics

[Note: Jameco is currently offering all the parts I used in this video as a perfboard prototyping kit -- just add wire & solder. ] When you think "DIY electronics," one of the first images that likely comes to mind is of parts and wire soldered to a standard piece of perforated circuit board -- and that makes sense. Perfboard is widely used because it's so versatile. Essentially, it's just a grid of potential solder-point connections. You can trim it down to just the size you need, or leave extra space for future enhancements, or revisions, if need be. Subscribe to the MAKE Podcast in iTunes, download the m4v video directly, or watch it on YouTube. In this latest installment of the Circuit Skills video series, I demo my own approach to perfboarding by building a rather unusual guitar effect -- the PWM, a design I found in Tim Escobedo's excellent Circuit Snippets collection. (For those interested, I also drew up a more traditional version of the schematic - available here.) In order to get this thing making sound ASAP, I omitted the stompbox switch and its somewhat complex wiring. However, the optional LFO add-on seemed a bit too good to pass up, so I did incorporate that into my build. I knew from previous projects that the 40106 Schmitt Trigger IC could make some cool experimental synth sounds. It turns out that the chip also works as a surprisingly sweet distortion pedal, if you're into that tough & spazzy fuzz-bot kind of sound (which I am). If you need a boost getting started with your layout, here's a basic diagram of all the on-board connections I made (just much neater than how I actually made 'em) If you build a PWM, have fun! And do share build pics and impressions in the comments below.
