No printed instructions for a kit

Would not having printed instructions put you off buying a kit ? I put together a coke can Stirling engine kit, but I don't know whether to print instructuctions or have them on the website. Printing them myself would probably increase the cost by a fair bit as my cheap inkjet printer really eats expensive ink (must by new printer - but they are evil).  The assembly isn't really complicated. Your opinions please!

go kart kits

I'm going to build a go-kart kit and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to buy.I found this go cart. I would like to build it myself but for that price (400 dollars) I rather buy that than spend 800+ dollars on something not as good as that.Bottom lineI found a nice go cart for 400 U.S. dollars. I would like to build a kit but not spend more than 400 dollars and that at least performs as well as the one in the above link. The kit has to total less than 450 dollars and have everything I need.Thanks Jrb

Currie Electic Bike conversion kit

I inherited a Currie E Bike conversion kit which included the rear wheel and drive motor assembly and battery pack/charger combo. It did not include the wiring harness or throttle. I did find a generic throttle/control on ebay. The kit did not have the rack that I've seen in other pictures, so I will make my own. Does anyone know enough about these to know the wiring layout or any other parts that are needed? I have a bike already to convert. I can solder and do most of my own bike repairs and some fabrication, so this doesn't appear above my usual skill level. Thanks in advance for any help. Jim

Good kits?

Off in another thread we were talking about goodkits being a good way to get your feet wet with the practicalities of electronics: how to solder, what the individual bits look like, and so on. I was lamenting the demise of Heathkit - many a engineer in my generation had their first electronics experience putting together one of Heath's kits, using their excellent instructions.So anyway, what kits are available today that offer the hobbyist a "good" and educational building experience? The kits should have good quality PCBs and components, instructions that go far beyond "solder all the components to the board in the places indicated by the silkscreen", and hopefully some amount of theory on how the thing works, and how to troubleshoot it if it's NOT working.I'll recommend:Lady Ada's stuff - I'm not sure I'm wild about online vs printed instructions, but it certainly gives you a good chance to see what you're getting into before you order anything, and it probably permits a higher level of quality in the instructions than it would be cost-effective to have printed.2Dkits Blinkies - a more limited selection, 2dkits specializes in neat little LED badge-like things

Machine Age Satallite compact flash player

Hello everyone I am presently building a Machine Age Satallite for our Rocket Room exhibit. I want to put at least ten different sound files into it as an added feature. I have several files on a compact flash card--Morse Code, space sounds, etc.. What I would like is a simple programmable player that I can loop and will start playing when the power in the room comes on in the morning. The satallite will be mounted up high so a remote to change the file playing would be nice. I have found kits online that cost about 80 dollars. The price is not to bad but I wanted to know if there was a more clever way of accomplishing this. Thank You Parker

When we are forced to leave town in an emergency, we will grab our food supply, water, clothing, blankets, and valuables from our home.  My bucket will have all the little things you could use in any survival situation such as being stuck on the interstate for days in winter or extreme heat that you wouldn't think about  in your hurry to leave.  Batteries corrode, liquids spill, food  medicines become outdated,  What great survival tools are there and how do you use them.  I want to be the best prepared survivor on the interstate or stuck in the wilderness (with my car) until it blows over..

I want to play my MP3 player in my car so that I can hear the music I want to hear.

I have talked to several friends about the different ways to do this and basically have learned that I either use a cassette converter of an FM transmiter. Well I decided to go the cassette route however when I put the cassette in my car tape player and connect my MP3 player, no music. The cassette makes a sound like its rolling some tape (kind of like when you use a cassette tape cleaner) and then after about 15 seconds it ejects. I thought maybe it was the MP3 cassette I bought so I went and bought a second MP3 cassette of a different brand and motre expensive and it does the same thing. Am I to beieve that the MP3 cassette converter is not an option for me? Should I now go out and purchase the FM transmiter? My car stereo/tape player is a good one as I have a BMW and tapes play fine so what is the problem? Do I need to buy another MP3 cassette only this time spend even more money? I've seen some that are $25, the two I bought were $5.99 and $9.99 but no music :( Any ideas??
