I love the your desk! How are you getting such great photos? Do you have an assistant taking the shots?
That is amazing! My next instuctable involves surface mount soldering and I've been trying to figure out how to photograph it (with both hands already occupied). A foot switch would be just the ticket!
The USB microscope I have has a fixed magnification that is too high to capture the work area I'm interested in. I'm actually working on a Raspberry Pi system with adjustable focus. Another instructable once I get it ironed out!
Didn't mean to offend. My point is that there is quite a difference between building one and building a thousand.
Love that you did the faceplace from a PCB. Hate that people are nit-picking your BOM pricing on a one-off hobby build. The fact that you can build it yourself, priceless.
Yes. I've seen pictures of at least one other person doing it that way. You really don't need a breadboard if you go that route, and most of the drivers come with LEDs that help with troubleshooting.
Thanks for the feedback!
Design Sketching Class
I've been working with some 0402 and 0805 and have come to the conclusion it was easier to apply voltage than look for the cryptic cathode markings. This is a brilliant and easy way to do that. I've never heard of these tweezers, but here is an example I found: http://ast-labs.com/shop/banana/smd-tweezer-clip-t...
i served on submarines in the late 80s. One patrol, someone got the idea to take some spare nuts and file them down into rings. It caught on, and soon everyone was doing it. Great way to pass the time on watch, although for a while, there was metal shavings everywhere!
Loved all the knowledge tid-bits in the video. I'm a big Adam Savage fan, but had never heard of "first-order retrievablity".
I can never get the wiring right. That is why I designed a shield: https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-AVR-Progamming-Shield/
How close to 90 degree turns is it making with the 128 step setting?
Give it a try and see what happens. The part number corresponds with what I was using, but your data sheet clearly indicates 513 is correct. Let me know how it goes.
i have left-over parts I would be willing to donate. Can you message me from my profile?
Love it! Thanks for posting pictures.

Totally awesome. Thanks for sharing your improvements!

The Raspberry Pi Batinator
I have no idea, but would start by looking at the data sheet for the IRLB8721 to see if they have any application notes.
I love the Attiny85, but hate doing to the wiring to program it, so I designed an Arduino shield that makes it quick and easy:https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-AVR-Progam...Here is one of my favorite Attiny85 projects if you need inspiration:https://www.instructables.com/id/SnapNsew-An-Educational-Soft-Circuit-Platform/
