Low Resolution Probe

A simple electromechanical method of digitizing solid objects at very low resolution. 


My custom hotplate for reflow soldering of very long, narrow circuit boards. (Turns out I use it all the time!) It has a +/-0.25C temperature sensor and an on board computerized control loop, good to up to about 500C. Not that I ever turn it up that hot; I’m afraid to do that!

Shocker Swords

Can you believe I got paid to do this! Too much fun! Also, kind of dangerous and painful.

PCB Milling Platform

It’s dead flat and it GLOWS! This is what I use to make prototype circuit boards in-house.
