Welding skills progress

Welding skills progress. I was fixing my motorcycle stand today. On the right last year attempt, no penetration, big online drugstore, blob of shit. Plus the metal bracket was to thin and it went all sideways. On the left today’s job. Looks like a row of pennies. I got the settings right at the first try, maybe I was just lucky.

quiz show buttons

Since I know nothing about electronics, I took up the challenge to build quiz show button system for deskidance It consists of 16 buttons, indicator laps and a control panel. Whenever a button is pressed, the light goes on and the other buttons are locked out, hence you can see who was the first to press the button. It was a heck of job, there’s nothing like debugging electronics after all night soldering session. It runs on 8 dual JK switches, 2 8-way NOR gates plus an AND gate. One thing I learned in the 2 weeks build is that next time I’ll use a ready made micro controller ;)

ft500 seat & luggage rack

I found some leftover curtain hanging pipes (or whatever they’re called) in my garage and turned them into a luggage rack. It was 3 days of cutting, welding, more cutting, sweating, more cutting and welding and some swearing. It still needs a few fixes, like a plate to separate luggage from the exhaust pipe… just an idea.

 

 

 

Since I know nothing about upholstery, this morning I woke up and decided to make my own seat cover. I mean, how hard can it be?

 

 

 

 

I must say it resembles a real seat cover and many people think it is.

In case you were wondering why do I need it all… I’m heading to Albania this very Sunday morning, 2 up.

on the road again

Did a short trip from Poznan to Munich via Prague, to see a bicycle show. The show itself was so-so, but the road was a blast.
