I need help setting up a 2Mhz oscillator circuit

So here's the backstory : Last night I was poking around in our shed looking for ..... when I came across a box of old electronics. Inside was a lot of old parts, from about the 1970's, a few 555's and 741's and a big 28 pin chip I didn't recognize. After plugging the numbers on the chip into google (AY-3-8500) I found out that it was freaking pong on a chip. Apparently my dad had bought it as a kit in the 70's but never got around to make it.So I took a look around the net for schematics and foundhttp://www.electronixandmore.com/project/pongman/http://www.datasheetarchive.com/pdf-datasheets/DataBooks/Book241-59.pdfHere's the problem, I don't have easy access to the 90uH inductor in the schematics or a 2Mhz crystal.So how can I create the 2Mhz I need to run the chip?

Wireless Ping Pong Scoreboard

I want to make a scoreboard for our ping pong table. I currently have a "prototype" loaded on my arduino. It consists of an LED matrix and two momentary button switches. One button adds a point, one button subtracts a point (just in case) and displays the current score on the LED matrix. The plan is to add another LED matrix and two more push buttons, so that each player will have the buttons mounted on their side of the table, to keep their own score, with the LED matrix mounted on the wall. My question is, does anyone know anyway to make the buttons connect to the arduino wirelessly so I don't have to run a ton of wire? I also currently have implemented debouncing on the input buttons and would like to keep that to ensure that when you add or subtract one point, it really is only one point.Thanks!

Beer cap coffee table need hinges

So i want to make a coffee table/beer pong table.  like this  http://media.pongalong.com/images/bestbeerpongtables/BudLightBeerPongTable.jpg So it is going to be 3' x 8' and i want to have 2 sets of legs underneath of it.  A short set for the coffee table and another set that are taller to use it as a beer pong table, or just a regular table for that matter.   So my main question is where can i find locking hinges for the Table legs?  I have found some, but don't seem to be very heavy duty.  I want them to be able to lock the legs in the horizontal position to hide them under the table while the other legs are locked in the vertical position. Also does anybody have any suggestions for cheap fiberglass or resin to coat the bottle caps.  Didn't realize how expensive the stuff is.  Cheaper is better.

Problem with compressed air, ping pong turret

Hello all, I am in the process of making a ping pong ball turret powered by an air compressor, I’m using a solenoid valve to trigger the air electronically.i have had some exact diameter steel pipe milled out which is 250mm, so the diameter of the balls are 40mm and the diameter of the pipe is roughly 40.5-41mm. And I’ve sealed off one end with a tapped out hole for a nozzle fitting. My compressor goes up to 7 bar -around 100,psi -. Do finally to the topic 0f my question, i have tested the firing of the balls by firing 7 bar through an compressor gun, and to my surprise it didn’t fire across the garage like I expected, instead it made a very high pitched noise and the ball vibrated inside the tube, eventually the ball would rise up the tube and eventually speed up towards the end of the tube but still only launched at most 1 meter. Any help on how to fix this problem would be excellent. As I expect 100psi through an exact diameter tube would fire the ping pong ball very far. Feel free to ask any questions if I haven’t been detailed enough. Cheers

Miniature chainsaw, mortar and ping pong blower

(a few tiny ideas) Basically a toy chainsaw that can cut through paper. Using hobby-R/C-like parts such as those tiny light motors would be a start. Reduced size, like a cellphone at most, mountable on a figurine soldier would be great. The miniature mortar should throw marbles on "mortar trajectories", you should be able to set the angle of the launch and (optionally) somehow the speed, though this wouldn't be necessary if the angle part is done well and the power is relatively constant at all shots. For ease it should be built only for angles above 45 degrees and the angle slider (or whatever the solution) should have marks (ticks) such that a user can remember and even create tables if he so wishes, in his war against coffee cups. Simplest solutions of "powering" would be rubber bands or coils from broken toys. A ping pong blower would be a tiny but strong fan (brushless outrunner motor) that keeps a ping pong ball "levitating" in mid-air straight up, but most excitingly even blown under an angle too. This wouldn't be a problem (physics takes care of it alone) just that the mount of the fan (ducted or not) should be operated and tilted as needed. This "levitron" would be a nice display on the desk running as long there's juice in the battery or else. Sorry if I'm not posting in the right place, these are just some ideas i'd love to build but i'm too clumsy and lazy :( Though my source of inspiration is the variety of USB gadgets commercially available, i'd like these to be more "free" and simpler if possible.

convert any CRT TV or monitor into a vector (XY) monitor?

NOTE: I since found a couple links that might shed some light on the question... From HackIt: New uses for old CRT monitors http://hackaday.com/2008/02/25/hackit-new-uses-for-old-crt-monitors/ It would be very hard to do, but it is possible a CRT could be converted to a vector monitor. Perfect for playing Asteroids, perhaps under MAME. You would have to replace all the control circuits, probably with an FPGA and three ADCs (x/y/intensity). Posted at 8:58 am on Feb 25th, 2008 by MoJo Television and PC monitor experiments http://www.educypedia.be/electronics/televisionexperiments.htm old cga/vga monitor to oscilloscope ? http://www.edaboard.com/ftopic57853.html The inquiry: Maybe I am over-simplifying but I was reading one of those examples of hacking into a CRT's horizontal & vertical yoke controls to sync to music:     http://geektechnique.org/projectlab/707/how-to-make-mac-se30-audio-visualizers and had the idea that it should be possible to create a DIY XY monitor (vector display like on an oscilloscope, Vectrex, Asteroids, etc.) for an Arduino or other uC, MAME or Vectrex emulator, from any TV or CRT, once you have hacked into the electron gun's yokes. My understanding being: Raster display: the horizontal yoke (an electromagnet) sweeps the electron gun from left to right turning on the beam wherever there's a "pixel" at that line (which lights up the phosphor at that point making it visible), then it starts over at the next line (vertical yoke moves down) and draws the next line, and so on, Vector display: instead of rendering a moving image frame-by-frame using top to bottom/left to right scanning, shapes are drawn directly to the screen by positioning the horizontal & vertical yokes at the starting point, the beam turns on, and the yokes repoint to the end point, thus "drawing" the line inbetween the 2 points (I would assume this is for straight lines, not sure if circles or arcs are possible?) then the beam turns off, and the yokes get re-positioned to the next line's starting point. I'm not sure what turns the beam on & off or what kind of timing might be involved, obviously that needs to be controlled somehow. Or for color, where instead of a single white (or green, amber, etc) phosphor exists per pixel, there are multiple (red, green, blue) per pixel, and the beam hits each one at varying strengths (or for a varying length of time?) to 'mix" the primaries to the desired color? I'm not sure how that gets handled in a color vector monitor, but I would assume it's something similar to raster? So if we can hack into a CRT's X/Y yokes and move them around with an audio signal, can we control the yokes more deliberately from a microcontroller to plot specific shapes or text, hence a vector display? For those audio/TV hacks, what is the audio signal doing to the yokes that causes them to move? Whatever it is - voltage, resistance, etc - this is what our device would have to control. Possible proof of concept version: make a device to control the yokes' position etch-a-sketch style with a couple of potentiometers, and turn on the beam with a switch or button. If you see a dot of light moving across the screen then it works. I am thinking the controller might need to be "calibrated" for the individual CRT? (Maybe build some kind of calibration mode into the device.) You might dedicate a microcontroller to driving the display - it could receive text or vector shape coordinates via serial, store the shapes to draw in its own memory, and persist or refresh the image independently, freeing up processing power for whatever device it's displaying for. Another idea would be maybe add some kind of way to read light pen's coordinates, thus making the CRT an input device that can be read from the microcontroller or PC (the Vectrex had a light pen right?)  [This would be a cool mod for the Arduino composite TVout as well.] So is this idea possible without a ridiculous amount of work & parts?  I may be dead wrong about how this stuff works (I'm sure that if this was possible, someone would have done it by now?) but figured it can't hurt** to put the idea out there. I have visions of 4-player vector Arduino pong, Asteroids, Tempest, PDP-1 Spacewar!, vector NES Duck Hunt, a vector etch-a-sketch or lightpen drawing or animation program, or vector Atari Video Music. Possibly an open source color vector games system. Or just a vector display system for any Arduino or microcontroller project, made from any TV. **WARNING: maybe it CAN hurt... Evidently hacking into any CRT can be deadly, you have to discharge the CRT and capacitors properly or you can get killed. So please be careful. This definitely is NOT for kids to try at home.

You can find it here: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-ping-pong-ball-gun/ As I said it was made saturday july 10 but since I entered it into the "DadCanDO Family Fun" contest it did not appear on the site itself that day but was kept on hold until it could be moderated for entry in the contest. I look today and my entry has been accepted, I'm very happy with that but when you browse ibles by recent you can't find it untill page 4 because it was released saturday! Now that kinda bothers me since  my ible will get less views and it wasn't visible for the last few days. So my suggestion in this matter would be that either your ible does not appear on the site untill it's accepted but that when it's accepted the ible takes that release date so it get's on page 1. Or that when you enter an ible in a contest it always immediatly appears on the site and get's enterd in the contest later. I would like to hear some other peoples thoughts on this problem.

Rummaging through the attic I recently found my old pocket LCD-TV from the 90's. Since television in Sweden has become digital and It being of the analog persuasion I have no current use for it. What project can I use it for?Specs are :2" colour LCD-screen, very low resolution. Enough to watch TV or play PONG but not enough for a C64.Composite Video input & Analog audio input (mono), via 3,5mm audiojack.3,5mm audio output (mono)Runs on 6v (4 AA batteries)I nicked this image from Frank's handheld-TV pages . Thank you and hope you don't mind, Frank.
