Intro: PCB Wall-E for FREE!
This is my first Instructable so please BE NICE! I will be posting more later. This is what I do when I'm bored so enjoy it... :)
I'm going to show you how to make your own PCB Wall-E out of recycled PCB parts from a CRT monitor. Now you don't have to have a monitor for this. You can pretty much find these parts in any junk electronics you have.
Post pics of yours when you finish! If you make him better I'd like to see!
Step 1: Parts List
Here are the parts I used:
1 Transformer (Body)
1 Diode (Neck)
2 Electrolytic Capacitors (Eyes)
2 Metal Capacitors (Hands)
2 Resistors (Arms)
2 Transistors (Feet/Treads)
Hot glue gun
Step 2: Assembly
I originally was going to solder the whole thing together but it ended up not working as well as i expected. So I used a lot of hot glue instead.
First I started by soldering the metal capacitors to the resistors. This is the only soldering I did in the entire project so you can put the iron away!
I broke one lead off of the diode, bent the other 90 degrees, and hot glued both electrolytic capacitors to the bent wire on top.
Then glue the diode/head assembly to the top of the transformer.
Glue your arm assemblies to the sides of the transformer
Now glue the transistors to the bottom. I tilted them down a little so when i sat Wall-E down he looks up at you.
Step 3: Finish
You're all done! I know it's simple you can turn a lot of those extra parts into figures like this! Hope you enjoyed it!
