Click Here For Details I recently got rid of my older bigger CNC machine.  I wanted something that would  work for small hobby items that I like to build.  Small air engines, magnetic floating armatures, etc...  I chose to purchase a small Chinese CNC.  I recently completed adding home and limit switches.  I also installed a cutting height puck as well.

For some time, I have been flying the DJI Drones.  I started with the Phantom 3, went to the Phantom 4 and now am in the process of moving over to the Mavic Air, just released a couple of months ago.  Here is a study I did of the  various signals and their relationship to each other in the P3 and P4.  Interference between the Drone, your Phone or Tablet may cause erratic behavior and even crashes, if you are not careful.  Follow along as I discuss he various parameters that are involved.  I do plan on doing a study on the Mavic Air in the near future, as it uses a different combination of signals.

I do all my CNC machining using Mach3 as the program that controls my CNC Machine.  I have designed several screens that meet my needs for 2.5D CNC machining.  My Z Zero and X-Y position finding routines make it really easy to locate your cutting tool exactly where it needs to be at the start of the cut.

I use CamBam, a CAD/CAM program to do a lot of my drawings for parts that I am going to machine.  Here you can download a help file that is an index PDF where you can look up items in the help file for using the program.  Very handy, if you are a CamBam user.

When I have nothing better to do, I do a lot of Electronic Test Gear repair.  I buy and sell it on eBay, giving others an opportunity to have some really great older test gear at a reasonable cost.  Gives me one more thing to keep me busy!
