DC Motor speed controler

Hi all Can anyone suggest the best way to replace the variable speed trigger of a 18v battery drill, with a remote from the drill adjustable speed control. I want to control the speed and have it stay at the setting until I turn it off or adjust the speed. The drill will be clamped to a board with no battery and powered by a power supply. Thanks for any advice Les

Momentary switches used in mice

I'm going to make a custom guitar hero controller for myself, and i want to mod the buttons so that they don't requite so much travel, and they're more.. snappy, if you get what I'm saying. The switches in mice are perfect, but I don't have enough mice to dissect to get enough buttons. I also found that some of the switches are DPDT, which are perfect for throwing in some LEDs... Anyways, my question is where can I get some DPDT switches from mice, without bulk ordering on ebay? And are there specific names for those switches?

Gamecube Controller for Wii

With the Wii U coming out without any nintendo gamecube controller ports, I was wondering if it were possible to still somehow mod a gamecube controller so that it could work on a Wii U.  Since classic controllers that plug into a Wii Remote will work on a Wii U, i was curious to know whether it is possible for a gamecube controller to be modded so that it is recognized as a Classic controller.  Somehow connecting a gamecube controller to a Wii remote, since a classic controller and a gamecube controller have pretty much the same buttons.  If this is possible how would it be done?

Remote Control Car Controlled By Computer

I'm doing a project where I am rewiring a remote control car remote to work using a computer interface. I've found a few tutorials on how to do it, but they all deal with a "button" controller, where the motion is controlled by pressing buttons rather than using a "pistol grip" controller, or one with a wheel to control turning and a trigger to control acceleration and deceleration. Has anyone tried this, or does any one know if I would be able to use the tutorial linked below with this controller. I highly doubt it would work, but I would like a better opinion.http://jbprojects.net/projects/rc/

Question about Remote Control Challenge?

For the remote control challenge, I have an idea for an Instructable to build a type of universal remote controlled by a program running on your computer. I'm not going to give too many details about the project right now, but my question is does the Instructable have to be for a remote controlled device, or can it be for a type of remote control itself? Thanks!

solenoid valve control

Hi, im wanting to build somthing simple to control the heater control valve on my fiesta. its a simple solenoid valve at 0v its open(hot) at 12v(14.4v) its closed(cold) the propper control board uses pulses to control the valve, the board has since given up and im left with a very hot car, now i thought a simple way to sort the problem might be to use the 10k pot on the control board with a MOSFET and just vary the voltage going to the valve. will this have the same effect on the valve?

Remotely controlled throwies

I'd love to make some throwies that can be remotely controlled. At a minimum I want to turn them on and off, colour and brightness change would be fantastic.  What's are the options for doing this - what's the cheapest, lightest, smallest way to control them remotely? Some kind of RFID and switch? Is this going to drastically raise the price from about $1 a piece, or could it be done cheaply? How many could feasibly be controlled at once?
