use gerbv to view the layers before sending them.

I2C busbar for electronic projects, finally decided to try implementing it on KiCAD rather than learning EagleCAD which usedtobe defacto. KiCAD experience was very easy and fast after watching instructional video.

footprints are for adding custom shapes and chips. easy once you get the hang of it.

  • when using hotglue , torch lighters and gluestick work well for quick fixes if careful when breathing and in a ventilated area there is a higher risk of burns on fingers aswell.
  • works well for applying to the underside of PCB’s for a makeshift case.
  • works well to secure things like mini / micro USB ports.
  • works well to place USB hubs around the computer desk.

Soldering tips

  • Butane soldering iron works great for ventilated area’s because they get too hot and vaporize the solder / chemicals / paste aswell.
  • solder fumes use a large fan to move air the carbon pad filters seem to make a stink of their own but are for cleaning soldering fumes too.
  • desoldering braid seems to not work the best.
  • Wash PCB’s with hot water after soldering parts , wipe with paper towel and let dry.




TS100 Oscilloscope hack

ts100 programmable soldering iron with opensource firmware and motion sensor. should make for a great time. https://github.com/Ralim/ts100


more here soon also i have not tried qelectrotech much yet

eaglecad seems to be popular.

  • svn checkout svn://svn.tuxfamily.org/svnroot/qet/qet/trunk qelectrotech_trunk

Making Transistors out of Iron Pyrite


Picture of the enigmalith 100k year old transistor or power generator ?

“electric eel, some 5,000 to 6,000 stacked electroplaques are capable of producing a shock at up to 500 volts and 1 ampere of current (500 watts).”


this rock could have been some kinda transistor.


not sure what happened to the video but this was what it looked like. had pulsing from the top.
  • Copper pyramid in a vacuum
  • Pyramid is connected to ground
  • Plasma with HV transformer 15KV about 28KHz
there might also be a way to fill metal spheres with helium or hydrogen and attach a lightning rod to it with superconducting wire to the base somehow oneday.
