So here they are: an addictional rail to easily shift up and down all the mechanism, a twin LED lamp to light better the working surface and, last but not least, an integrated automatic power switch connected to the teethbrush-lever! Does this lever type seem strange to you? read the first Instructable!
Step 1: Tools and b.o.m.
- a second macro photography rail
- a tactile switch (better with a metal lever) with a little screw
- a shucko socket
- a wall plug with wire
- an aluminium bar abouth three inches lenght
- a bolt with nut
- a short bipolar wire for swich connection
- some hot-shrinking tubes
- and of course some tools, a welder, a welding support (maybe with a lens), hot glue (mine is black), a double elements glue, pliers, a screwdiver, etc.
Step 2: A new rail
Step 3: The spring stand...
Step 4: ..is mounted!
Step 5: The automatic toothbrush level sensor and power actuator (alias the switch from the junk)
The screw should be the right size and thread to join the little holes in the rail. I had to enlarge a little one hole of the switch, which was too narrow for that screw. Beware to not brake the plastic box of the switch.
Put the switch in position and measure how much bend the lever so the nail touch it, then keep it out, bend it and cut and round the extremity with a file.
Step 6: The AC plug...
You need some of heat-shrinking tubes to insulate the wires. I've then decided to envelop everythink in hot-glue, and so they're not essential but it's always better be cautious.
Step 7: The power circuit
Step 8: Glue it
Here you see the mounted parts. The shuko socket fits exactly in the space, and on the other side the black glue element doesn't interfere with the toothbrush. The wire which goes to the switch is long enough to let the rail moving up and down.
Step 9: The lamps...
Step 10: ...and the light
Step 11: Done!
So this is my full-optional column drill, I think now I've a complete tool which will help me to drill all next boards.
This time I show you a video too, forgive me for bad quality, maybe I could make a better one in future.
Let me know your impressions, sorry to have bothered you again with this drill! ;-)
Goodbye to next instructable!
