Thanks for the extensive answer! It helped a lot!
Thanks! I didn't realize there is a night version. I will definately order night version one even though is just black and white.What about the monocular display? How good is it? I don't find many reviews from it on the internet.
Thats cool as heck! I'm making one!One thing about the camera. Why did you choose the pro version? From the video I found on the internet, the regular version has better image in the dark.Is the sensitivity enough, so that you can walk in the nature at night without light? How much more can it be seen as compared to the naked eye?Thanks!
3D Printed Night Vision Scope
It is on to-do list!
The cool thing about those old printers and scanners is that they will not break down. Ever. Those new printers last couple of years if you are lucky.I have I have 18 year old inkjet printer on my desk. Still working good enough for what I need.
Congrats on your repair!Sadlythe CD player will only play regular audio CDs which have 20 or so tracks in WAV format. WAV format is just a recorded raw sound waveform, like the grooves on the vinyl record. The reader just reads the waveform and plays it directly. MP3 format is encoded, and you need some digital processing done in order to play it. I don't believe there is an easy way for converting this players to play mp3.
In the ATX power compartment there is a power inverter for the 800W water cooled chinese spindle motor. The controller is from PlanetCNC, model MK3/4. The router was a design project made by members from the association of electronics engineers and hobbyists in our country. We made kits for around 100 of these machines a few years back. I believe parts are not available any more.Terminal blocks are there for the distribution of all the cables that go in the machine. 4 wires per stepper motor, 4 wires for spindle, 2 per axis limiting switch... I connected all those wires on terminal blocks. and from there they are spread to the electronics.

The terminal blocks were a way for me to save couple of bucks for the connectors, since I don't need them, because my machine is always stationary, and I will need to disconnect the wires for transportation only in very rare occasions. Terminal block are still better than direct wiring to each component. In the need of disconnecting everything its much easier this way.
I will try to make a full instructable on the useless machine.
Let the adventure begin! :)
Haha thanks! Yes, I call my useless machine a OCD cat in a box. :)It would be fun to make a modified version just for cats to use :)
I tried to make it to look like a cat paw, but I couldn't make it to look good enough so I abandoned the idea :)

No, the blade is quality stainless steel and it had no rust. It was just dirty from other rusty parts. I just cleaned it in soapy water and dish cleaning sponge with steel wool. And then I sharpened it.
Thanks!I can bet you can make your knife shine aswell!
Thank you! It is truly satisfiying to restore some old rusty "junk".

Thank you for the tip, I will add the description.
Thanks! I hope to see yours one day!
Yes, I also wanted to use a wing nut, but it is a pain to handle with hands. The brass handle is much nicer to hold. And it is very easy to make.I had no problems with wire slippage, I twist wires as in the video. But I haven't tried with very high tension. If that rod would be thicker, I would drill two holes, to stick the wire ends through. Maybe it would help.
I fixed it :)
