Basically a toy for my kids.

I made a railroad signal light as part of a Halloween costume. I wanted to make it blink correctly. So, I got a relay and NE555 breakout and got that all working but I was unhappy with any of the lights I could find. Just about everything wants to run on 12 volts and I'm trying to run things off 5 volts. Since it's so dirt cheap, I designed an array of 14 10mm LEDs that fits on a 2 inch circle in KiCad and I'm having 10 of the boards made. 13 bucks shipped. Amazing. I'm going to spend more than that on LEDs and resistors.

Didn't have grass in the back yard at the new house yet so my dad and I decided to go ahead and install drainage for the gutters on the back and the HVAC drips. We also buried a water line and electrical for future use.

I'm now trying to work out how to get everything wired and mounted so it's not a fucking rats nest.

I've got power coming from USB. I've got a NE555 square wave breakout board. I've got a relay board. I need to work in a boost converter because I need a tad more than 5 volts to get the relay to cycle properly. The temptation to just hot glue the whole mess together is high.

Anyone have any advice or see good examples on how to neatly marry a bunch of breakout boards into a cohesive package?

NeuseRvrRat I've been mentally designing some type of grate/press for the tupperware container I use to sous vide, something that will clamp to the side of the container and have a grate that can be raised and lowered that is the size of the container to a)keep things that might have some air left in them submerged, and b) serve as a drying rack/drip rack that can sit over the water and let bags air dry with the water dripping back into the container. The only problem is I can't weld and wood won't work for this. Would you have any interest in being commissioned to build something like that for me?

[Edited on January 15, 2018 at 10:09 PM. Reason : Or anybody else that can fabricate. Would need to be stainless I'm assuming]

I could give it a shot. Need a drawing or something.

Aluminum may also be an option.

good job with the drainage! I did a similar project 2 years ago and couldn't be happier with the results!

is that the sound it makes on its own or did you add a speaker? seemed pretty loud for just turning LEDs on and off.

I used a relay specifically to get the tick tock sound. I told my boys that any bell sounds were up to them.

I need a new electronics project. I was thinking of making a programmable voltage reference. However, other than the things I'd learn making it and maybe use as a multimeter testing tool, the utility is limited.

Anyone have any inspiration for a useful/interesting electronics project... preferably something a n00b could do?

I suppose I could start building some weather observing instruments. Building a radiosonde would be cool but RF stuff is black magic.

Tempting. I was thinking of building a reflow oven which is more or less the same project. At the same time, PID temperature modules are super cheap.

I think I'm going to open up a wall going to the kitchen. Hopefully it's relatively painless...

I decided to build a free standing shelf for a nook in my garage. I'll post a picture when I'm done. But I took a fucking chunk out of my thumb with a rasp.
