I have a Milwaukee 12v variable speed tool with a bad control board. Rather than replace the board, I'm planning to just use a switch for single (full) speed. But the switches that I have & will fit are AC only. So, I'm thinking that I'll use the switch to control a MOSFET that will do the heavy lifting. I just want to make sure that I'm not missing anything. The plan: + ______...


Old Anelex power supply: AC on the DC

This huge, ancient power supply made by Anelex has been serving from under my shed workshop bench for about 25 years: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g11s67bb5jk7bc8/HD-Power-Supply.jpg?dl=0 It supplies a few projects around the house and garden and I generally just ignore it. But a couple of days ago I found that there is 115V AC between the case (connected to the 230V AC mains input) and all th...


DC cable puzzle

Tidying up my shed workshop I got an electric shock from a cable pair that had earlier been disconnected from its 14V DC power supply. So I'd expect it to have virtually zero voltage across it, apart from ac noise. Its destination is a garden lamp relay box about 80 ft away from the supply. For some of that distance it runs close to a mains cable (unloaded at the time). My DMM consistently...

Any suggestions for projects I could do that involves the Motorola MC6840 programmable timer module? I just received a peripheral for the Apple II that has this chip onboard. It basically allows for applications that involve timers, such as reading digital potentiometers, among other things. Thanks!

I'm starting to develop a VOX circuit to solve the following problem. Wife got new smart phone after flip phone went in water. We're on a boat. Wife's phone is inside now, she's outside working, can't hear the phone ring. Won't take the phone outside, I think she thinks she paid $0.01 for the flip phone and $200 for the smart phone and won't take a chance with it. So I want to build ...

Is it reasonable/possible to build an 8 amp 20 V transformerless power supply from a 120Vac line. I calculate about 180uf plus or minus depending on other components. Maybe 9- 20uf caps in parallel? I'd like to build it into a leaf blower. All plastic, absolutely no metal exposed. I think I've answered my question, I have 12, X rated caps in my junk box, but they are only 1uf....
