  • Pro Quality Guitar Pickup Winder - 3000+ RPM Pickup Winder With Tach, Counter and Autostop

    Just wondering if you could give a newbe some advice, i have been building Strats and Teleys for a couple of years and want to jump into building the pickups. I looked into StewMacs but I'm on disablity and can not afford theirs. I understand basic electronics (trained as an A & P). But need a little translation on opto disk? What is the purpose of and can you use any other type of small motor say as out of a drill etc.? Thank you for a great instructable. KathyOnly way to learn is to ask the "dumb" questions.

    Lightweight solar panel (12V battery charger)

    Great work, i am learning about building solar panel and wanted something lighter than commonly used. I live full time in my 30' trailer and volunteer as a host. Some parks are totally off gird and since i am on disablility, my funds are limited. So i bought some small (52mm x 39mm) cells to learn with. They are kits with cells, buss wire, tabbing wire and flux pens. I am always trying to go as light as possible. Thank you for explaining the wiring for voltage. I understand series vs paralellel. As well as diodes etc. I build guitars as a hobby so solder alot. I just havent use fiberglass much, is there any other material I could use instead? 100% silicone maybe? I have to stay away for vocs because of my disease. (They give me siezures) i have used silicone before and don't have proble...

I just have to be careful of chemicals.Thanks for the great instructable.
