Tell us about yourself!
There really should be an separate Instructables for people with 3D printers. I don't have one, don't need (just to play with and build 3D lamps) and will liekly never get one. So my WOW, turns very quickly to dlete. Just a comment, but still, what about the rest of us.
11. Vaseline, polypropylene socks then hiking socks. 12. Boots half a size larger than normal as your feet swell.13. Sweat band to keep the bug spray you shouldn't have put there out of your eyes.
Nice project assuming everyone has a 3D printer and a laser cutter. For those of us who don"t, nice project for someone else.
Likely braze. Nice job, interesting.
Well, he designed it, made a PCB, case, etc. Unless it's a hobby, he wants to get paid for his work. I would forgo the PCB, wire wrap as in the "olde daze" and build it for under $100. But then I'm not into selling as a side line. I also think there is a lot of reducing in component count that could be done. I like the look and the idea, but it comes across as a clunky design, no dissing intended.
Not as long in my experience. The cathode loses emission and the display gradually gets dimer and dimmer. I've read anywhere from 30k to 100k hours. I've had mine dim out after about ten years, long after you've lost interest.
I tend to use a heat gun on the back of the board. Hold the board upside down, heat it and give the board a rap. Most of the components just fall off.
Be very careful bending the pull, it's made of white metal and will break very easily.
Same, over the garage doors. Lots of no longer wasted space.
