Power Drill to Belt Sander Conversion
I like it. I'm currently building a strip sander from wood and might use parts of this to make it better. Your belt tensioning method is significantly simpler than the one on the plans. Also think I'll use your rollers. 3D printing is easier than using the lathe.Something to keep in mind though. Hand drills usually have a low usage cycle, meaning on for a few seconds then off again. They're not meant to run long term with load like you'd do with a strip/belt sander. Keep that in mind and only use it in short bursts, maybe add a fan to help keep it cool. You don't want to burn out your drill.
Multiple Fermenter Temperature Control With Arduino
This will be very useful to me. I don't brew beer anymore but I'm making an egg incubator and this is almost exactly what I need.One problem. Either I've missed it on every read-through or you never mention what to do with the LCD. I assume it's connect to the same points as the sensors. Correct?Also, was having issues with the LCD library, had to change to the following:https://bitbucket.org/fmalpartida/new-liquidcrysta...Just in case anyone else had issues.Thanks a bunch.
The code was written with on an old version of the arduino IDE, beta 18 or 19 IIRC. I know there were some changes with the 1.x release and some sketches no longer compile. My suggestion is get one of the beta version and try compiling using that. It's been 6 years since I last worked on this, I couldn't tell what needs to change to fix it for the 1.x IDE.
