    Amazing what you can buy these days and the price! Times have changed..... when I was a kid, building a crystal radio or extracting electricity from a potato was about the limit.

    The controller chips are truly industrial, clocks are easy projects. You can get some really cheap components but quality can really be poor. This could be fine for a desktop clock but for mission critical projects its worth a few more dollars for the higher quality components.

    I have been tempted to build out a vehicle tracker that pings it's location out over cellular network for theft retrieval. Hide it in the form of a injection performance box on the bike.

    Back when I was a kid I would have killed for a comadore64 and an Yamaha IT175

    I've got a few years on you then. When the Comadore64 came out, I was riding a CB900F and had long since discovered that anything similar to an IT175 would cause me too much pain and should be avoided at all costs.

    When you refer to mission critical, it reminds me of the documentary about back streets in foreign lands full of people with little fire pits, disassembling our cast off computers. Then with a little paint brush, recoding resisters etc so they could sell them back to us. Scary to think where some of that shit ended up. It was on the news here again. The local news folks tracked the shipping containers from our "Green Recycling" folks and they are going to the same place.... which is a complete environmental disaster.

    Ps. Boobytrap your tracker with an ink pack, so if he opens it, he'll be turned into a Smurf.

    I started re-designing the front clip on a rod I traded for this weekend. There are lots of questionable decisions on this thing, but plenty of meat left to be a crazy fun ride.

    First attempt at bung practice. Not pretty, but didn't blow any holes in anything. A rotary welding table is on my wish list.

    outstanding for 1st attempt
    of course you are not consitent on those ,breif moments of glory though
    a rotator/positioner is the ultimate solution,a most important deal there is having that there weld smothly rotating at the most handy axial orientation


    the other deal is being completly i mean 100% comfortable sitting with both filler and torch elbows resting on the table or blocks
    just an old leather welding glove under yer funny bones
    you also need very clear vision no dry eyes, slam a couple glasses of water to prevrent that,that is something most dont think enough about
    if you are with dryish blurry vision the cure is water
    i discovered that on my own
