Over the years I have used various ways (hot plate and hot air gun) to solder SMD parts but eventually determined that using a reflow oven work be best. Here is some information of my toaster reflow oven build and how I setup a solder paste dispenser. You’ll find more details here.
So keeping a site current is more work than one expects but I’m trying to get some meaningful content uploaded to the site.. I have added a page with some basic information on various animatronic control systems.. Check it out here.
Welcome to my web/blog/whatever site…
I’m a hobbyist…
I like to build things…
Mostly electronic things that have lights, motors and sometimes sounds. My intent is to post information on the various projects that I done. My hope that others may find the information interesting and possibly useful.
For the projects I do post about, I will try to include as much information as possible as I have always appreciated that when I have searched for ideas on things that I want to make.
Most people that play with animatronics have used, or at least heard of, Visual Show Automation (VSA). It’s a great program but there isn’t a lot of information about using it available. I have started a bit of a FAQ for it in the Animatronics section for it and hope to expand on this as I gather more information on using it.
I’m not interested in maintaining a full pledged blog so I won’t be bothering with comments, though you can send me a note via the Email link should you feel the need to.
