Thread: Dumb question from a none driver
31/08/2019 19:04:26

I can’t believe how such a simple question has turned out to be so complicated.

31/08/2019 09:23:48

Regarding ownership of cars most cars on the road are not owned by driver ,they are owned by finance company ,bank etc.

31/08/2019 09:10:20

Surely the answer is simple ,the person who bought and paid for the car and has a receipt is the owner .The person named on the V5 C is the registered keeper.This does need to be the same person.

The insurance company might want to know who the owner is but DVLA won’t .

Thread: Babani Press

Thanks for link to this brilliant site. I have several Babani books bought years ago.They still turn up at boot sales etc.

Thread: Yesterdays Car Boot Haul! Odd items

The smallman clip was used to fasten a small rail truck on to a haulage rope which ran between the tracks .A larger version was used on the 2foot gauge tracks in coal mines.

Thread: Electronic Noise and ARDUINO
22/06/2019 22:06:52

I see now why you have 0 volt line and earth , your 0 volt is on the arduino ,as it’s powered by a separate battery.As I said in a previous post ,I would try to eliminate the interference before doing anything to the arduino.

22/06/2019 20:36:59

Could you please explain the difference between the 0 volt line and earth on car. Surely they are the same thing.

I would remove the fan belt and see if it makes it any better and fit a new condenser across the points and make sure suppressor plug caps are ok, before I made screened boxes etc.

21/06/2019 17:31:10

Look up Speeduino on google ,this is a diy engine ecu based on Arduino mega,lots of info on screened cables etc.I have just built one to fit on Fiesta Mk1.

Thread: Waterproof cabinet / box?
13/04/2019 17:58:36

Would a case from a scrapped air con unit be suitable ,they live outside .

Thread: 1.5 hp dc motor
30/12/2018 15:50:14

The control signal will most likely be a pulse width modulated signal,there is plenty of info about this on Google. A PWM signal can be easily created by an Arduino board.

I would connect the motor to a car battery and see if it does anything,should go slowly.

Thread: No December issue of MEW?
29/12/2018 14:27:10

I have not got my digital issue yet.

Thread: Leaking camera batteries
28/12/2018 16:56:48

I would not use brake or carb cleaner ,I would probably try switch contact cleaner. I think brake or carb cleaner would be too aggressive on delicate components.

Thread: ML7 questions
11/12/2018 23:31:28

Whitworth and BSF spanners are the same.AF spanners do not fit BSF , some metric ones might fit.

Thread: 3 phase vs single phase
10/12/2018 08:08:30

There is a project in Jan 2019 issue of “Everyday Practical Electronics” to build a speed controller for upto 2HP single and 3 phase induction motors ,with how it works explained.
