Neat job, though I'd be careful with this. It does remind me of the true story of a Melbourne couple stowing their expensive jewelry in the wheely bin in their backyard while on holidays for 'safe keeping', and not expecting the helpful neighbor to wander over and put it out for them while they were away.
This is a great budget project, and nicely presented.
Hi ItsGraGra - Thanks for putting this up! I thought I would have to design the whole setup from scratch, this is definitely food for thought. Much like you, I am in South East QLD, and have a pair of switchable concrete 22,500ltr tanks servicing the house. I also have another tank further away, and was wanting to set all three up with wifi/solar powered senders, and allow for future expansion. So thanks for the info, your approach looks excellent, and the instructions look detailed.
Nice instructable, well presented and excellent work! I guess the one thing I would add is - start by looking for a bike you would really love to own and ride, not a cheap junker, as this can quickly escalate into an expensive process. My last rebuild was an SRX250 for my partner, that was a complete basket case - fuel tank leaking, front brakes screwed, front forks leaking... and plenty of cosmetic damage. Even a simple single cylinder 250 can hemorrhage cash quite quickly, but the end result was well worth it, and there is an added feeling of accomplishment when you know a machine inside out.
Brilliant build! Very innovative, and thoroughly documented. My main concern with this type of device is resilience, RAID mirroring does achieve some level of data redundancy, have you tested its rebuild capability by pulling a 2.5 out then inserting another HDD?
Nice work, I have a second Davey water pump now with a failing pressure switch, needs a knock on the pressure switch to fire up... The replacement switch is prohibitively expensive, I will be doing a similar strip down, thanks for the 'ible.
IMO, for a car key its better to replace the whole key body if it is that bad, have you checked online? many of the bodies are available. If not there are generic equivalents you can pick up online for a fraction of the cost from a dealership. In my experience, I replaced a key with remote locking with a folding key, coded it to the door remotes myself and had it cut and coded to the barrel (another code) at an auto locksmith. After Mrs Curly lost one of the pair on the beach it needed to be at least recoded..
This is excellent work, and great attention to detail. You're more than welcome to spend a day in my workshop organizing my tools.BTW - We OCD sufferers cope as best we can, life becomes much more complicated.
Support the cct board if necessary, then heat the solder until you have a fluid mass and have the nozzle of the sucker as close as possible to allow the vacuum to suck up the solder, press the button and byebye solder - works fine for me.
Nice work! Good to see other people repairing their electronic equipment rather than replacing. I had a similar issue with a Samsung 226bw monitor, great picture quality for three years, then flickering and eventually failing to power up. It is pretty widely known (google it) that the cheap (rhymes with saxon..) capacitors in these units often drift out of spec after a few years, leading to these types of problems. I replaced all mine with a well known brand, problem solved, repair cost - around $15AUD total. For testing you can use a cap tester, or visually check for bulging, signs of leakage or heat degradation. As caps are cheap - even decent ones, I tend to perform debugging with a solder sucker (which i far prefer to braid) and a rubbish bin lol.
