That's the beauty of it, you don't have to worry about controlling it as the antenna will stop once the door is down. They are built this way so the gears don't grind if something stops the antenna from going up. same thing when retracting.
I've only just seen this! what a great design. well done.
Hey John,Have you tried to attach the 2 wires to the input jack? if not, give that a try. Also, if the ground it attached to the frame, then maybe attach a ground wire from the input jack to a ground terminal and then touch one (or both together) the wires from the head to the jack and see if that works.Good luck!

Everyone's an expert... I just happen to have one lying around and have tested using both inputs and it does work.Try making one and testing it out for yourself.
Great advice - thanks.I'll add the information into the ible'
Great advise - thanks. I'll update the ible' with this info.
Check out the link in the parts section. Alternatively, you can just type into eBay - "230 x 150 x 85mm Project Box" and it should come up with a few
well done. That's a cool look tape player!
I don't it really matters what size jack you use. The one used was in actual fact a 1/4 inch jack.
1. If one were just looking for an instrument amp. is it necessary to include the 3.5mm input?Nope - you can just remove this you want to2. If both inputs are included... could both inputs play simultaneously? Say like a backing track that you could strum over?Absolutely.
MCM Variable Bench Power Supply
Great job! Looks like he stands well on his feet
Cheers. Actually it has a really nice sound. If you put the volume about half way you get a clean, crisp sound. Pump the volume to full and you get great reverb and a nice distorted sound coming out the speaker
I did though. The switch on the top is for turning on the USB charger. The original switch turns on the light

Sorry - not selling them
The little 12v ones (which I didn't use in the end) - you can find these on eBay by typing in "27A battery"

Updated. I have put a link into the parts page and have put a little info in step 10 on the sight. Thanks for the heads-up

Thanks. I've used flint and steel plenty of times as well. Does take a little practice to get the embers to catch - the right amount of tinder definitely helps. Oklahoma sounds like a crazy place man
I think this comment wins hands down as the longest I've seen! You are right though, this isn't a simple fire starter. Check out the link in the intro though if you want to see how to make one (This is mine also). This version is more slimline and has a better finish though.If you have any pictures of the one you have made, are you able to post them? If not, you should write up your own ible' over the thanksgiving holidays.
Great idea! This would look even more amazing if you added an LED to each of the bottle lids and a small 3v barrel! You could make it so the LEDs only come on when the bottle is screwed in all the way.
Interesting. Here in Australia, Methylated spirits is pretty benign. The SDS has it as highly flammable but that's it. I had a look at the Methanol SDS and it looks pretty potent. Def use lighter fluid if you have it around,. The ible' though is about using other sources of flammable liquids as a lighter source.
That's excellent! I might include your way to make the groove in the ible' if that's cool.Post some photos too when you get a chance.
Fire Piston V2View Instructable »
Ah yes - very good point. I've added a little more info in the ible' on what methylated spirits actually is. :)
Anytime. Totally agree with being able to make something yourself. I think people forget sometimes that this is a DIY site!
Your da man
I find that the larger bic lights have a pretty decent sized flint inside
Thanks for the heads-up. I've updated the ible'.
Oh and let me know how your fire piston goes. More than happy to help if you get stuck in any place.
Love the look of this little fella. Great sound too for such a simple amp.

Hey there.There is a small door on the timer that hides the buttons. I just had a look at the link and its bringing up the corrct timer
Great job! Def a good use for an old camera.That looks like a Voigtlander camera on the bench behind tour camera lamp.
Gotcha. Yep it would be, especially if you also had a drill press too!
I use a paste flux which always does a great job of bonding the solder to the copper. you will know when the copper is at the right temperature when the flux starts to bubble.
Damn impressive build man. Love your daughters gun as well - did you also make this?

Getting the holes for the spark wheel to line-up is tricky. Doing it before you make the bends would take some serious skill.
yep. You could attach the flint and spark wheel with a key ring to the torch somewhere. Then you'll always have it ready to use
Do it! Actually, if you are new to soldering copper, then this would make an ideal project to start with

Of course a lighter is going to be easier. This is an ible' though on how to make fire without one.
None at all. I just wanted to make mine more compact.
Yeah it does. The lens is from an old projector that I had lying around and it has a "zoom" feature so you can adjust the spread of the light. It doesn't spread a huge amount but it does the job

As long as the copper tube and dowel are around the same size then you should be ok. The dowel should fit loosely into the copper tubing so when you add the O ring it will form a good seal. In regards to lint - yes I have used this before as tinder but no in the fire piston. I'll give a go tonight and let you know if it works
haha - I have no idea how big a quart is but def good to hear you'll now have multiple uses for it. I've just been using everyday motor oil and it does seems to work well.
