LED "clip"

I need some sort of LED "clip". i need to make a long string of LEDs where i can change the individual LEDs easily. i need designs for both normal and 4-pin RGB LED's i was thinking something along the lines of the clips in breadboards. it doesn't have to be movable. i might need to have some sort of "doubleclip", so i can change the resistors for individual LEDs any ideas on how to make something like this? or where i can buy some?

Mags v.s clips

Seriously, why does everybody call mags clips? Is it because of hasbro? A magazine is the object that holds all the bullets, a clip is some bullets clip'd together. Why is this so hard for some people?

Self Opening Clip with time delay of 2-3 mins

Hi All This is my first post, so I apologise in advance if I've selected the wrong category for the post. I have an idea... I have a quad-copter at home that I'd like to attach a small light weight item and have it self release/open after 2-3mins. Ideally, either a small springloaded clip based on the rough image below or something similar, that is self opening after a selected timeframe, even after 1-2mins, or alternatively, a small lightweight mechanism that does the same thing. I've searched everywhere and can't find anything even close; lots of small clips, hook, latches, but nothing that 'self-opens', which is the most important spec. I can add a new RC servo and swinging arm and operate the release by remote, but I want to avoid it if there's a simple solution out there. Appreciate any help if someone has seen something out there?

Is this a Hoodle? Answered

  A while ago I bought a cheap extending leg table which was made in China.  The rather entertaining instructions included the line "Propel the inner rod towards the outer tube until the hoodle locates the orifice."  It will always be the 'hoodle table' to us now, but if not a hoodle, what is the correct name for that type of spring catch.

Power amp clipping problem?

I recently bought a Pyramid PTA150 1500 watt power amp, and its clipping led's always seem to be lit when my mixer is set to half volume or higher, even when the amp is unplugged. Could they be powered from the input voltage when it is high enough? Is it bad to push my amp when they are lit? and it has a high volume cooling fan so I dont think it will overheat when pushed.?

What is this type of fastening called and what does it fasten to? Answered

This belonged to my grandmother (the clasp looks post 1930). I assume there would have been some kind of hinged cover over the watch face  (a hinge and catch  are circled). I don't know what the double fanged clip like  thing on the back is called or what it is for.  The double 'fangs' look somewhat like an upholstery pin.  Given that the front is a watch, and one needs to see a watch for it to be useful.... what would this be stuck into or clipped onto?   Anyone familiar with this style?

The smallest knex gun with a removabe clip

Alright, I was messing about with my knex, attempting to make a knex gun with a removable mgazine. I had made the clip and I then noticed my knex book-end that I made ages ago. I noticed that my knex gun clip would fit inside it, so with a little modding I think I have come up with the worlds smallest knex gun with a removable clip. It's roughly 12x8x3.5 with the clip in, and 12x6x3.5 without. Please post any atempts to beat this or correct me if I'm wrong becuase I have not researched this so it might not be the smallest.

Prevent Clipping and Hum in class d amplifier

Hey I got this amp. Now at large volumes, there seems to be clipping. Even though the amp is 20w, my speaker is rated for 25w.  How can I prevent it from happening, rather than never playing at high vol. Can it be done by AGC or Dynamic Range Compression or Noise Gate. In my case, which is a ready made pcb, how can I include such circuitry. Is it even possible. Also, while selecting an IC, what needs to be looked at that will suggest clipping would not happen, or which parts needs to be referenced from the datasheet which ensures preventing clipping. At large volumes, if I disconnect the mp3 player from the amp but keep the jack plugged into the amp, a high hum is heard. When removed, hum is lowered but not eliminated. Similarly, when track changes. What steps needs to be taken to eliminate them. All the time before actually getting into practical electronics, I was only looking at Power output, THD+N, Class, etc of amplifier. It is only after going hands-on, for the first time, that I can experience the real things which most matter. Appreciate for helping me become a pro. Thanks.

How do i disable an auto clip limiter?

I have an eb7500pro rack mountable amp running 1800 watts rms in bridge mode and i cant get the amp to turn up to clipping i would like to. i know your not suppose to clip the amps i know all the possible dangers when entering clipping zone. when i turn up the amp to about half 1over4 of the way up and the volume decreases. and when j turn it down the volume kicks back in. when that clip light emits it turns down the volume I know because i play a constant hz tone and slowly turn it up and it turns itself down how do i stop that?
