I got a NST!

I recently bought a 11kv, 30mA Neon Sign transformer. I can get nice arcs off of it and everything (maybe about 2 inches? when rectified it makes shorter high pitch arcs), but I'm wondering about protecting it. after a couple hours of playing with it there was a loud pop in the case and it stopped working. I opened it up (it was held together by rivets, I just drilled the rivets out) and it's a switched mode neon sign transformer. I thought it was a bit light! So I found a (transistor? To-220 case) that had it's face blown off, luckily I found the other piece and I'm going to order the component and replace it. So, is there a cheap easy way of preventing this happening? While opening the case I added a number of saftey features, a saftey switch, and a "ON" indicator.

I Got a Vacuum Pump

I recently obtained a Vacuum pump from the school (they got it from like a barn or something where it was sitting for like 10 years, so it needed a lot of cleaning, lot of dirt). I'm not sure how strong it is, but it is powered by a 1/2 HP motor (the same motor that I got earlier, I'm just now using the Vacuum pump) and uses pullies to make the torque more around 2HP. Couple of Questions: -It works (I'm not sure how well, if you put your hand over the output and give the pulley a 1/4 rotation turn it generates a noticeable amount of sunction (and sounds like an opening bottle of wine when you take your hand off). -What usually goes bad with old pumps, can I prevent it? -I should probably change the oil, is there a cheap local way of getting some (like some sort of auto oil?) -Do you think there's enough suction to create a vacuum tube. (doesn't have to be precision made, it's for Tesla Coils, think large Vacuum Tubes)

I gots a computer question

Hey guys, I got a bit of a question to ask. I'm back at school and the school gave me a laptop to use (I'm in highschool) but it's one that doesn't have "their" school modified disk image on it with their crap like deepfreeze (resets the entire system each reboot) and of course, pretty much everything is cut out of the start menu and it's just generally shit (hence why I had removed the image and installed my own XP on it). Long story short, the tech teacher I was talking with said that (well actually he kept switching his story around) he had the wifi key written down somewhere but couldn't remember where he put it (suuurree). Then he told me a schoolboard admin was coming thursday (this past thurs) and the guy would set it up on my laptop for me. He did come but he never did anything for me, him and the teacher spent all day playing with some new photocopier they got. So yesturday I went on one of THEIR laptops (ironically it was said teacher's laptop he used in the school cept he wasn't there so I was able to use it). I went looking through the computer for where the wifi utility that both I and the school use for managing connection profiles and their keys instead of letting xp handle the wifi. Standard ibm software I got of their site. It appears that the keys are stored in the regristry and not in files, they're listed in folders for each profile. So what I did was save the directory of profiles (there was only one for the wifi). Now it looked like they were hex keys, and I'm pretty sure it is HEX but it's longer than what will fit in the settings for wifi in the ibm program. So I was wondering if the numbers are hashed or something so you have to crack the codes to access the actual hex key? If anyone knows how I can get the key out of the number I can send you the .reg file that I saved. I'm not trying to hack into the school, they know that I need access to it so I can print my work out but the tech teacher seems to be a dumbass (not to mention he looks like captain picard/mr.clean, a combo of both maybe?!!??!).

I've got one more question, bear with me

Okay, I've got one more amp question for you guys, I've already fixed up my sub box, removed the amp and screwed a peice of mdf over the hole, sounds much better than having the amp inside, much much. Now, the amp I'm using right now, it's okay (ish) but not powerful enough and it wallops too much at high power, don't like using it. I've got a standard 150 watt car amp (two brand new actually) that would probably suite it fine. But there's a catch, these are regular car speaker amps, one left channel and one right channel on each amp. And it strictly says in the manual not to bridge the connections (otherwise in most car amps you can use the L + and R - together and get twice the power without damaging anything except your speaker if it's not powerful enough). So question here is, I've emailed them (audiovox) to ask if it's because the amp just cannot bridge or if it's to warn stupid users not to blow their speakers, they were no use, wasted my time waiting for a response only for them to tell me to call in. Okay lets actually get to the question shall we? Can I or can I not bridge it? I have another amp for this sub, but at 60W a channel it won't do unless it's bridged. Should I just try it?

Mechanical Logic Gates, got some of your own design?

ADHD version at the bottom =========================================== I've been fascinated by logic gates and how they're used for quite a while now, and then I thought, "why not mechanical logic gates?". After a few brief searches on trusty ol' Google, there aren't exactly "a lot" of sources from which to draw from. I've designed a few (rudimentary) mechanical logic components myself, such as an AND gate and an OR gate (I was gonna do a negated IMPLIES gate, but I came up with the idea during Biology class, so that's pretty much gone now). The thing with electronic logic gates is that they are standardized (kinda), which makes building logic circuits easy, because you wouldn't have to build hundreds of different designs of the same logic gate just for that circuit, alone. Maybe some of you have some logic gate designs to share? Maybe we could standardize some mechanical logic gates and someone might just make a cardboard computer out of 'em :D Just to add, I am aware of the usage of weights, balls, gears, linkages, and lever-type systems for mechanical logic. We can come up with a few for each type, I guess. (this excludes fluidics, the use of water and/or air for logical computation) Yes, I have searched instructables, but even then, not a lot of sources (though some are quite fantastic, might I add). ============================================= ADHD version: Got some ideas for mechanical logic gates? Maybe we can standardize them, somehow :D

Got a problem with the Arduino shift out function and a LED array

After looking at this instructable, I wanted to start building my own LED array. I found this Arduino article. I bought the 74HC595N chips and connected everything exactly as the article showed it, and copied the first example program directly into the Arduino. The Arduino is connected through the USB cable to my computer for power. My problem comes in when I hook the circuit into the 5V on the Arduino. When I hook it up the Arduino shuts itself off. I wasn't sure if it was overloading the Arduino, so I hooked it up to an old, plug in breadboard I have which has a limit of 1.5A. When I hooked up the circuit the breadboard produced a high pitch tone and still nothing happened. I have checked and rechecked all the connections and jumpers, (even looked at the data sheet for the part) everything seems to check out. The LED's are just simple green LED's, but the resistors I am using are 1k instead of the 220 ohms the article said to use (i had only 1k handy and the LED's still light with a 1k).

I've got some questions about ionizing air and ion thrusters?

I'm hoping to build an electrohydrodynamic (EHD) thruster ( see here http://blazelabs.com/l-intro.asp#peek )in the near future. Not a lifter like most, but just a thruster designed to create thrust as efficiently as possible. One of the big problems with these devices is obviously energy wasted ionizing air. The thrust of an EHD thruster is T = ID/K where I = current D = distance between anode and cathode and K = the potential needed to ionize the fluid (in this case air). Therefore, increasing the distance will increase efficiency but will decrease absolute thrust. What needs to be done is to separate ionization and acceleration. The ionization needs to be independent of the ground and I'm not sure how to do this. I need to be able to create a constant cloud of positive ions. It seems though that not having the cathode nearby will require a much higher voltage therefore decreasing efficiency. One Idea I've had so far is to have the positive ionizer, then have a negative grid a few centimeters away and a positive grid a couple millimeters after that one. Hopefully inertia would cause most of the ions to flow through both grids without discharging, and be further propelled. Then several centimeters after that would an electromagnet that accelerates the ions. Any input on whether this will work or better ways to do this? Finally, I don't fully understand how an ion discharges. If it is energized, the energy has to go somewhere right? So say you have your positive ionizer and a negative sheet right in front of it, when the ions hit the sheet what happens to the energy? Does it get recycled or turned into heat? I'm hoping to figure out some way to recycle the energy from the ions (minus inefficiencies), but I don't have a good enough grasp on this yet. So any ideas about this are greatly appreciated. I would be very happy if I got this up to 10g of thrust per watt, so input/ideas are appreciated, cheers!
