Re: Piece display PCB discussion

..... If you want drop protection how about making a brass wire 'roll bar cage' for each piece?. Now Tony! Great Idea - :idea: That would be a very cool look! Brass, Copper, Stainless, Silver, or any type of metal wire 'roll cage' would bump the Geek Cool Meter WAY UP! The steam punky 'roll cage' c...

Re: Board coils discussion

Yes, to test your coils would be the way to go - But, I did loose your one board coil amongst a number of others. A helper - helped. :o

Thanks for the 'duh' reminder. I do have the pcb coil to check. :)

Re: Board coils discussion

Tony or someone who has tested.
What are good uH values for a board and pcb coils, respectively? :?:

I bought a inductance (coil) testor kit and now would like to get all my coils set to a set value.

Thanks!

Re: Piece display PCB discussion

Thanks Tony for the board build and part difference insights. Yes, I see now that you have carved out a number of time intensive sets that it is time to go time, cost and materials efficient. @...Ed Sorry, I didn't mean to alarm you about selling. I just was trying to give a compliment based on my p...

Re: Piece display PCB discussion

Ha, Ha, Tony said, "...crap..."

So, we paid for and got a lot of "crap" solder in our kits and need to replace with some good stuff. LOL.....

He's so Fun-E....

It's a good thing I've got a couple of rolls of Silver soldier after doing some Arduino SMD play. :P
