My problem with not being able to reply is that it says type in the two words in the image, but i don't get an image. I am working on some other things, a LED Rock, Paper, Scissors Game and a LED Tic Tac Toe Game, i have the wiring diagram for them all done but i don't have the money to buy switches or LED's but i am hoping i can get them off of a motherboard (I have about 20).

Ok. I don't see anyting saying 'type two words'. Maybe you can report it in the bug section of Ibles. Those projects sound interesting!

dozer789 (author)2012-12-03

Thanks to both of you, i would reply but it wont work. Is there anything i can improve on in my instructables? This is my first one.

dr. richtofen (author)dozer7892012-12-03

No problem. Wierd that the reply button doesn't work for you. I can't see anything you need to improve on this one, or on the Ratchet one. The instructions are very clear, and you have part lists. Maybe you can try some more difficult things, but that's up to you.

Haha, nice!
