My self adopted name is Wu Li, pronounced the same as used in the book titled "Dancing with the Wu Li masters". It means, depending on your vocal tonal voice inflections: 1) Patterns of organic energy 2) "My Way" 3) Nonsense 4) I clutch my ideas 5) enlightenment

    Supercapacitor Joule Thief

    It is really fun to watch someone do something I wish I had the training to do and the brain to do it with! Don't say it is easy because I think it takes a special kind of brain to understand this kind of stuff, some kind of innate "talent" or the ability to grasp the math concepts that go along with knowing how to create and interpret your results. Are you Asian? It seems like Asian males tend to excel in mathematics, electronics, engineering, probably rocket science too, all the hard sciences stuff. It's got to be a genetic thing. Does anybody know if the genome of an asian male has a "smart gene" tucked away somewhere on the double helix? I think my double helix shares more of it's common traits with a chimpanzee, I have the furry arms and legs to prove it. I ha...

I have wondered if I could build my own super caps out of Coke can skins laminated between a dielectric? Does the foil in a cap have to be one continuous piece, or could I connect each layers band in series with a conductive strap between each successive layer? Is this a stupid idea? Like Forrest's daddy use to say "Stupid is as stupid does" (I always like to quote Forrest Gump whenever it applies to my ideas). mrc109

    I took apart a Shimadzu "autosampler" it has three axis functions with 3 x 1.8 degree/step Vexta PK243 03AA 2-phase 38.5 ohm DC 0.31 A "steppers".I don't know how to "interface" some kind of pulsed output electronic driver/programmable function power supply module (three separate? or One device with three independently programmable outputs)? Is this an Arduino controller project? This thing would make a great 3-D printer if it had the right kind of heated printer heads tacked on to where the vial sampling needle assembly was. How did u solve your power supply interface to three independent steppers problem? My mind cannot "follow" your wave solder processing of your "motherboard"?mrc109
