looking for motor mounts

I'm wanting to attach a few motors to a wood frame; however I'm not sure how to go about doing this.  The motors I'm using are in the picture; you'll notice their really isn't any holes to attach any mounting brackets of any kind.  I was thinking of using a 3/4'' pipe clamps, but was wondering if anyone here has any advice or experience with this.

Using a mounted drill to power axle mounted device

Hi, I have just constructed a chicken plucker as in the photo. As an initial attempt the device worked really well - except for the connection of the drill to the axle. This was not well aligned so it ate the threaded bar which was trying to pull itself out and not helped with the thread direction. Are there examples of how to better power such a device?  I would like to be able to re-use my drill, I suspect properly aligned would work better. I could also swap to a non threaded bar but would need suggestions on how to keep the plucker barrel in place. Cheers

moving across the country-need some kind of camera mount.

I'm moving across the country. I'd like to make a video consisting of short clips every single stop we make, but I need a way to make sure I get the exact same camera angle every time I set up the camera. Camera angle to include some of the U-Haul, whatever is in the immediate vicinity and my wife and I, dancing of course. Any ideas?

Name this thingamajig

Hi I'm trying to locate or build something I don't know the name of and searching around hasn't proved helpful, perhaps somebody here could put a name to it so I at least know what I'm searching for?  It's a mount which allows something to rotate  horizontally a full 360 degrees  continuously (similar to the column rotation on a tripod) however the object to be rotated needs cables passed to it through the mount unhindering the rotation - some sort of contact connection?  Ideally I want the mount to have a powered rotation but putting a name to this would get me on the right track. Thanks in advance. Garrett

But with this plan I for see 2 issues 1. The arm would most likely swing from side to side when speeding up or slowing down 2. If you wanted to record the driver, the window has to be down for this plan so wind would seriously be an issue. You could solve the first issue by using 2 arms, but windows are curved so.. im not so sure about that.

Hard drive won't mount?

So, I've had a toshiba 2.5" SATA 250 GB internal HD for a while now. I got it from an old toshiba laptop. I finally got an enclosure for it, and I plugged it in. windows made the sound it makes when you plug something in, and in device manager the usb port said a usb mass storage device was plugged in, but it didn't show up in my computer, nor did it show up in disk management. I searched the net for hours trying to find the problem, reading about how you might need to assign it a letter in disk management, and other more "grim" outlooks on how it might be dead. I listened to it closely, and heard it making very VERY soft ticking noises at a regular rate. I immediately thought the worst, and came to the conclusion that it was dead. The next day, I decided to take it into school with me, as my teacher was pretty smart when it came to computers, and maybe she could provide the tiniest shred of hope. She asked me to plug it into one of the school's desktops. I plugged it in began running like normal. It showed up  on my computer, and showed the correct disk size, as well as a document I'd put on there long ago. I couldn't believe it!  When I got home, I plugged it into my computer, but surprisingly encountered the same problem. I decided to do a bit of experimenting, and I started plugging it into various computers we had around the house, and lined up all the facts I had: It didn't work on my laptop. (runs windows 7 home premium) It DID work on my mom's laptop. (also runs windows 7 home premium) It didn't work on my old desktop. (runs windows xp home edition, but I don't trust it. It's been acting very weird lately) It DID work on my school's desktop. (runs windows 7 enterprise) It DID work on my sister's laptop. (runs windows 7 home premium) I was stumped, to say the least. Can any of you tell me WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?!?!?! The strongest lead I have is that it might not be working correctly on my computer because the usb ports can't provide enough power to mount it. But if my laptop can't mount it, why should my mom's or my sisters be able to? Please provide any other theories you may think are plausible too!

Mounting stuff on the Roomba Discovery

Mounting Lenses On Your Microscope

I found a broken cell phone with it’s camera and wondered if the lens could be used as a microscope objective. Image A shows the lens and it’s mounting with the CCD. The back of the lens is shown. The lens is about 4 to 5 mm in diameter. The starters from florescent lights make good lens holders. Image B shows a starter along with my modifications to hold the cell camera lens. The starter tube has 4 slits along the length so it can be compressed to fit the turret of the microscope. Image C shows it mounted on the turret. Image D shows the resulting view of a feather. It’s quite bad. Image E shows, for comparison, the view through an ordinary 20x objective (.40 NA). Here are some more lenses that I tried: Lens from a discarded flatbed scanner..... Very good! Lens from a 8mm movie camera...... Fair. Lens from the laser pickup of a discarded CD player..... Almost worthless. To take pictures through the microscope, I used eyepiece projection with a wide angle eyepiece. The lens on the camera was set to wide angle and maximum aperture, with a remote used to trigger the shutter. The camera’s LCD was used to focus and adjust the image. The camera’s autofocus handles the rest. For even illumination, be sure to center the objective lens over the substage condenser.

GoPro Scuba Cylinder Mount

Hi there, I'm new here. I've recently found an entry-level 3D online modelling software, Tinkercad and have been Tinkering ever since. I'm into scuba diving and I've long wanted to design a GoPro mount for the cylinder to give a 3rd person view of me while I'm swimming about enjoying life underwater. (Think a less-sexy Lara Croft!) I wanted to run it past you guys to see what you think. I've attached 2 screenshots, because as you can see, the mount I've designed is collapsible, to save space in my GoPro bag. I've done the maths (Pythag) so each side is perfectly lengthed to create a right-angled triangle, with the hypotaneuse (long edge) is facing down my body, towards my feet, so that the camera view won't be obstructed. I've used a Pythag triple, so the arms measure 3", 4", 5". This was done for 2 reasons: a) It was easier to desine using these measurements and b) I don't want it sticking too far up from my cylinder so that it doesn't catch on wildlife/coral/divers. As this is my first GoPro mount that I've designed, I've had to go on deimensions I've found online for the actual hinges. I've settled on approx 3mm for each prong as well as the gap in between. I have actually shaved off .25mm from the middle prong of the 3-pronged-hinge, and left the 2-pronged-hinge at 3mm for the gap and prongs. I'm going to get the pieces 3D-printed by a local service I've found on, either in ABS plastic or in resin, though I'll probably go for ABS as it seems to be a bit more hard-wearing, even if it's not so detailed. In terms of mounting it to the tank, I will use 2 headstraps, with the over-the-top strap removed from each one and glue the plastic bits of each of them together, at the correct length of course. I would join them using a seperate piece of plastic and either a hot glue gun, superglue or even some sort of epoxy, whatever lasts longest in prolonged exposure to seawater. I would probably place it nearer the top of the tank, near to where the strap of the BCD jacket goes round it. Does anybody have any advice for me in terms of the design from a functional point of view as well as from whether they think it would actually get a good shot on the camera please? I look forward to your feedback, good or bad!

Recommendations for mounting a 2.5" HDD in a small space

Hi, I'm currently trying to put together a small computer. I have a very limited space in which I can fit the motherboard and a few other components. Most of it kinda fits, but i'm not entirely sure how to mount the hard drive. The HDD is a 2.5" one like this one, with those dimensions: L:  100mm W: 70mm H:  8mm And once I exclude all the space taken by the other components, i have about that much space to fit it in (including the mounting parts): L: 170mm W: 40mm H: 75mm See the attached illustrations I made to get a rough overview of the space in the box. Note: I can technically extend a bit out vertically (height-wise) as the cover has a bit of gap inside but probably no more than an extra 15mm. The drive has screw holes on the sides and on the back (cf. the linked WD page) so there's a couple of options there. I'm not really sure how to go about this. I may be able to salvage some metal mounting parts from an old desktop but I would have to do some cutting to it and I don't have much room to move around for the mounting part. Another of my concerns is it'll be difficult to attach/remove the drive if I need to, because the bottom screw will be very hard to reach. Maybe there's a way to make a mounting rack where one part slides off to make the screws more accessible, I don't really know. Do you guys have any suggestions? How would you go about this?? I would much appreciate any tips, suggestions or even comments. Thanks Ben

Steampunk wrist-mounted scrolling map

Found this at Boing BoingOver on Boing Boing Gadgets, our John spotted this vintage wrist-mounted scrolling map from 1927, an antediluvian wrist-mounted GPS: At first glance, this 1927 map watch is pretty nifty: an antediluvian GPS, don't you know. It was called the Plus Four Wristlet Route Indicator, a name so clunky, unmemorable and artless that it even sounds like the name of a modern GPS device. The idea was simple: the Wooster-esque motorist would putter around England, scrolling a tiny paper map loaded in his wrist as he went with two black knobs. If you took a turn, you simple slid out one map and inserted another one and continued on your way. What ho! Ingenious! Except a complete road map only cost a few pence back in 1927, where as this device would have set you back around 5 quid. And just like modern GPS map providers, the real business model was in selling you additional maps. Which leaves the design. I quite like it: it's cheap, but whimsical and adventurous, like something you might strap on your wrist to traverse Oz. LinkLooks pretty cool and steampunkish. I would love to have one.

Help! Questions about virbration absorbtion for SLR bicycle mount

Hey Guys!Firstly I just stumbled upon this site while searching for answers to my build and on 1st glance it looks great! Loads of cool stuff to try..Anyway, I'm looking at building myself a camera mount for my Canon 350D to go on the front of my bike. My main issue/worry is vibration running through the bike and the mount to the camera and damaging it. I've seen loads of instructions on how to make bike mounts on here, but am still worried about the damage that could be done to my camera (my pride and joy!) if I undertake my project without dampening any vibrations from the road.I'm going to be doing timelapse/stills photos from the front of my bike around London (not the smoothest of roads!) so want to be sure I won't be damaging my camera doing it. The front of my bike has decent suspension so should take the hit of the bigger bumps but it's the smaller, higher frequency vibrations that worry me.I've searched as well as I can at 2am but can't find any of the instructions covering the topic of vibration, so I was wondering if there are any mounts or heads out there that are designed for this purpose or if anyone has built something similar with success (or lack of camera damage anyway!)As I'm doing stills work I don't mind about it being slightly 'wobbly' it's more the vibrations that worry me.I've found websites selling anti vibration materials ( so I wonder if that could be incorporated into a more general design.Thanks in advance for any tips or links! And sorry if this has already been covered but I've not found it!Ian.

Old Smartphone LCD as Head Mounted Display?

So finally, I decided why not just use the LCD directly.  No messing with the hardware limitations of the phone at all.  So I took the phone apart.  I got right down to the LCD itself and found that it has a 17-pin input.  But, I don't really know much about it beyond that.  I can tell you that the cable reads: Career 06 94V-0 <->2 C36_FPC REV A I even have a picture of it.  I think it's attached.  If not, I'll fix that. Essentially what I want to know is, what do I need to make it be a fully working LCD monitor for my computer.  I know I'll need a module to convert the signal from what it is now to HDMI or VGA whatever the case may be.  I also know I need power to the screen.  But, beyond that, I don't know where to look.  I've tried looking up the cable information, but I'm not getting great results.  Any help in the matter, would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Head mounted camera records what you look at

The EyeSeeCam is a head-mounted device developed at the University of Munich Hospital that uses four cameras to record what your eyes are looking at. Two cameras are used to track your eyes, one records what your head is pointed at, and the last one uses the data from the first two cameras to record where they're looking. The creators list some nice uses for this, but I keep thinking that this would be great for a first-person shooter. Or maybe something more altruistic like an interface for those with ALS that the EyeWriter was designed for.

By cushion I mean like a gel bag or something. See this video to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. It appears that this clip was shot by the mounted camera which can be seen, but it actually was shot by holding the camera on a monopod in one hand as I rode. The mounted footage was way to jittery. The mount that is there on the crossbar needs to be cushioned somehow to at least make it as good as what you see, but not some big Steadycam contraption. The obvious answer is a good POV cam but the good HD ones are serious money. I appreciate any head scratching on this one.
