Hi Everyone,

Talking of traps, ensure all traps are anchored. Not only will it stop your traps disappearing, but will allow you to despatch any wounded prey.

Nice, Ady1

Question for J.S.

John, How did you get the knurls/finger grips on those brush caps. Nice work.

If the answer is a knurling tool, my apologies for a silly question.

I'm not familiar with Corian.

Thread: Picaxe in programmable electronics

Hi everyone,

Thanks again to all that have replied.

The venetian blind controller, I have two up and running. These are with picaxe 08M2 IC's, they have replaced the previous versions that were built using Cmos IC's.

Picaxe, I was using the Flowchart method, but when you request help from the Picaxe forum, everyone only speaks Basic.

So, I would like to get to grips with Basic, I'm happy with Picaxe, I was asking if there was anything better/easier.

Have downloaded the latest Picaxe Editor Beta. Now my USB programming cable doesn't know that it's connected to Com1, Says Com8 not connected . ( Running Win7).

Regards, Bear..

Hi Everyone,


I have looked at the BBC Basic, does it work for making constructive things, like my Venetian blind project.

I've zero interest in games, I could get interested in using the PC to operate something mechanical, like shopping or mowing the lawn.

Thanks for the input.

Back to Basics....

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the replies. (Its had plenty of views).

Ian P,

Loosely associated with engineering, automatic venetian blinds via LDR, temperature control(On going) & servo motor (On going).

These things require metal/plastic turning to complete the modifications, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Dave D,

Can you give me a bit more info. What is(HT)C? I would like to get to grips with 16F PICs.

Struggling with Basic

Great forum

Hello Everyone,

Various I.C's from 'Revolution Education', called Picaxe.

Has anyone used this system?

It comes in two forms, Logicator, (Flowcharts) used in schools, and Programming Editor which runs on Basic.


Regards, Bear..

Apologies if this has been covered before.

Hi Ron,

230 Volt, 50/60HZ, 4800RPM, 180 Volts.

The 180v, could it be 180W ? 746W = 1 HP.

Hi OuBallie,

Take the duff one as far as Morrisons car park. Go in store and buy another one. Go to car, swap duff for good, march back into store, have tantrum, then ask for a refund, job done.

Bears can stoop pretty low, they have to, to catch them salmon.

Hi Packmule,

Suggest you make a simple SCR tester, if you don't possess one.

Otherwise its all guesswork.
