No, but >>7201 is an idiot.
The treadmill has no effect on the engine being able to create thrurst regardless of propulsion type.
The plane won't be able to take off because the wings are wider than the vertical supports and either the planes forward motion will be stopped or the wings will be too damaged to fly.

get an arduino (link in code comments), modify this for 3 LEDs

Most Arduinos have an on-board LED you can control. On the UNO, MEGA and ZERO
it is attached to digital pin 13, on MKR1000 on pin 6. LED_BUILTIN is set to
the correct LED pin independent of which board is used.
If you want to know what pin the on-board LED is connected to on your Arduino
model, check the Technical Specs of your board at:

-if you're going to get some thing from the truck, take something with you that you're done with
-use common sense, pay attention
-communicate. If you "didnt quite get that" or you've been told to do some thing you're not familiar with, or maybe you're a little familiar, don't just say "ok" and go try to do it. You're going to waste the person's time after they walk away to come back abd show you. Just have them show you first, thoroughly, and ask questions to fill in any blanks that they neglected.
-don't be stupid. If it's too heavy, don't try to lift it. Think you're going to smash a window carrying around that extension ladder? Ask for help.
-that being said, you can carry a lot at once. Grab that tool bag, and the other tool bag, and the trash, and that hammer drill, and bring it all up those 2 flights of stairs from the basement to the truck. Don't be a pussy.
-if you're on a site that's a long term project, make sure you know what you're doing on a given day. Plugging and switching? Full a box with plugs switches and plates, and throw in some 3ways and GFIs in there too, for good measure. Then go around and put that shit in. But make note of things that aren't right: boxes that aren't flush, pinched wires in the sheetrock (fuck those guys), etc. Carry a notepad, write shit down.
-get a project apron. Your toolbelt isn't enough, you need some thing to keep wire nuts in, or screws, or staples so you don't have to keep using your pocket and ripping open your ballsack.

I'm currently enrolled in an Electrical Engineering program and I was wondering how well you guys document your lab notebooks. I ask because I was recently partnered up with a guy who was enrolled at a more prestigious(albeit expensive) school and when we were doing the lab I noticed how good his notebook looked and I kind of want to get better at mine, to the point where I'm considering taking a technical drawing class just so I can be more accurate. Are there any resources you gentlemen might know of that show good practices for notebook keeping, when I do google searches all I find are how to properly maintain a lab notebook, which doesn't help at all.

And penmanship, are any of you also sloppy writers? How do you overcome that in the notebooks?

And just to continue the conversation, what kind of engineering notebooks do you guys use, and why did you pick it?

Learning to recycle old electronics (components) by Fanny Blonnerstere - Tue, 14 Nov 2017 19:16:29 EST ID:zIm1Srig No.7158 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

HI guys. This board seemed more suitable than /tech/.

My dear dad just passed away. He was an electronics hoarder (according to my mom at least). He collected a ton of broken, old or discarded but still working electronic equipment in my parent's garage. My dad was more of a collector than electrical engineer. He knew how to solder neatly and could name some components and what their specs meant. But he never really made anything out of his collection. One of the few things I remember was him fixing a radio that needed a component change.

My mom wanted to throw away all the "junk" when dad died, but I ended up taking most of them. I love electronics but I've never been good at them on a technical level. I'm more of a software guy. I know my basic electronics from physics class up until ohm's and kirchoff's laws. I can read a circuit diagram and have some clue about voltage, current and resistance. I'm not a complete noobie, but I'm still really really bad at electronics and have no idea how to approach a project.

I wanna recycle the old stuff my dad left. Salvage individual components, test to see if they work, organize them according to their properties, and make something new from them. My dream for a while has been building a radio transmitter. I've already got a super cool AM/FM receiver that can do all sorts of magic tricks but I lack a transmitter. I've done some googling, but a lot of it flies over my head.

So, I need sources about electronics. I want to learn. My dad left me a soldering iron so I got that covered. I probably should get some tools to remove singular components from circuit boards. The biggest issue is finding out if the components are still functional. Some of the stuff is from the 60s! Any easy way to do so?

Sorry for being all over the place with this post. I only took the mandatory electronics classes so I'm pretty intimidated. No clue where to start building my radio for example. Should I just pick everything apart and then start assembling components that fit together? There are plenty of radio transmitter schematics online.

Keep in mind though that you can get pretty much any common component from aliexpress these days for 1/3rd to 1/10th the price of retail on digikey, delivered.
Most of these will be even genuine parts because they are surplus stock from high volume productions.
I pay under $1 for STM32F103 microcontrollers for instance.

In general if something is sold on aliexpress or not is generally a good sanity check if a component is worth using in a design. Because if it isn't means that it isn't being used in consumer electronics and means information on it will be scarce.
Second: Never buy ICs where you can't find independent either a library for it on github or some discussion on a forum about it. This means they are meant to be used in special designs very close knit contract manufacturing.

My mantra is: When it comes to ICs there is absolutely nothing wrong with mainstream.
