Nice idea. Much simpler. Not to take away from the OP, because there may be other ways to make this more secure, like adding some type of coding or using 2 gap switches so you have to apply 2 magnets...
I would want you to be careful. these are rated 100V but only 10W which flies in the face of their 0.5A rating. but 10W is not enough and one day you may pay the price if the reed switch burns out or catches on fire! http://a.co/5qBlA0M
yes, I would agree. but you do need to look at power rating. If the reed switch is rated 24V @ 0.5A this is much closer to the 12V @ 1.3A but still not enough. However if the reed switch is rated at 120V @ 0.5A then all bets are off.12V* 1.3A = 15.6W12V * 0.5A = 6W24V * 0.5A = 12W120V * 0.5A = 60WJust my $0.02
I want to make this. I have two cameras that it might work with. One is small enough for the design as is. The other is too big. Much too big. It is 11 inches long and weighs 6 lbs. So I was thinking... would this work if the camera was above the whole frame? would it need much stronger motors? Would I have to beef up the motors if I figured out how to make it as is, but just larger? I imagine the camera rig being shoulder mounted for the large camera. But would a single sided gimbal arm be needed to overcome the size problem or is it necessary to use the "U" shape for stability?TIA
I wish I had the rig I made spur of the moment a couple of years ago. It was made from a coping saw handle and a few older camera mount items. I literally didn't but anything. I used it with the NEX10 I had and then I bought a real rig. I took that one apart but it really worked for the shoot.
current makes thin wires hot.Orbattery make steel wool go woosh!
I like to pack laundry lint in used TP rolls into ziplocks. keeping the lint in the roll gives you a good firestarting time
All the part numbers seem to have changed in 2006. I don't know how far that went. Please search for the same type of parts on the 2005. Also be aware that certain other problems including timing chain issues can be indicated if this is occurring. Mine was bad and may have been the cause of these clogging.Thanks

an improvement might be to use 1/2" conduit and affix the end boxes using 1/2" box adapters. Then get 3/4" adapters for the middle box so that the 1/2" conduit slides through easily.OR, you could attach pulleys to the center box so they ride on top of the conduit like wheels on a track.

Just an FYI - if these solenoids go out, have your timing chain checked. It's likely it's time to chain it.
Awesome, but I do'nt like wood or anything like it for electronic projects. Lexan or Plexiglass is cheaper, lighter, and stronger. for the bezel you could cut the one sheet to fit the monitor casing and another, possibly thinner one, to cover the non-viewing area.
He's opening both + and - circuits. You only need to open the + to turn it off...
