Thread: electric - measuring the kwh for my workshop

A few months ago I changed the battery, now the first "auto" time does not work in auto (does in manual). Another £50 worth of rubbish.​End quote. If your timer operates in a similar fashion to plug-in timers, try switching it from ON to AUTO, rather than switching it from OFF to AUTO. Good luck.

Hi Norm,

Can you compare the old bridge against the new one, with your DVM.

If they are identical, then suspect fault elsewhere.

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
07/12/2013 16:52:01

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..
