It took a while, but I found the best solderpaste dispenser around - and I'm selling it on Tindie under my "alter ego" DBA. If you're a MakeIt member, hit me up for a big old coupon, OK?

The class gets a huge treat - they also get to build an FTDI based USB-TTL board for programming their Arduino clones. Here's the design - pretty!

Shoot me some email if you want the files - done in DipTrace.

This is the board design that we're using as the example for the class I'm teaching at the Zahn Center - "Make Your Own PCB with SMT". It's a clone of everyone's favorite Atmel based board.

Shoot me a message if you want the files - done in DipTrace.

Take one part public domain data from NASA, one part 3D printer, and a few dashes of ingenuity - and get a veritable work of art.

On 4/30, SuperMaker Howard Fink tells us how he made his incredible Lunar Maps.

I want one. Seriously, just take my money now.

It's called Bridge, and the creator, Harsh Mody, tell us all about how he started with an idea, and got his concept to the the prototype stage. Don't miss it at our 4/30 meeting.

4/30: Wireless computing. For dogs. A peek into a Kickstarter campaign in progress. A new Type of wireless controller. 3D printed Lunar topo maps. And, of course, pizza.

Some scenes from an SMT/PCB class that I taught at the Zahn Center this month. Students learned how to create schematics, layout PCBs, and then hand assembled their creations (which were Duemilanove clones without the FTDI chip).

Seen at the MakerGear booth at the NYC Inside 3D Printing show, identified as a "second-stage prototype".

Just got back the PCBs from a project that I'm working on. I thought it'd be interesting to see what once existed as a breadboard design now functioning as a PCB.

FYI, I did the surface mount on the PCB. Including all of those 0603 LEDs. By hand :) I think I need new glasses now.

I love it when a project starts to come together.
