DIY Vacuum Chamber

at 9:56 pm. Filed under DIY Hacks

 

Chris Notap shows us how to make a DIY Vacuum Chamber for under $30. The heart of the vacuum chamber is a recycled compressor pump from a donor fridge. It is simple to construct with a piece of wood as the chamber base and something as simple as a mason jar acting as your chamber body. A few pop bottles are used as a simple free valve. You can see some of the experiments that can be done with the chamber below.

Arduino Controlled Industrial Stepper

at 11:36 pm. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks

 
AvE shows us that you don’t always need a complex expensive setup to drive industrial equipment. A simple Arduino setup is shown here to perform some simple stepper manipulation. The Arduino is connected directly to the Stepper driver which handles all of the complex microstepping etc. All the Arduino needs to do is enable it, chose a direction and pulse some steps at it. The result is a nice and simple repeatable system.
