Hi,

I have some Component packs ready to post out, my plan is to post them out to those who've already got a PCB in the first batch.

I've got a bit stuck with a couple of contact details where I've got a name that I didn't link to a username and they're different so if you have a PCB and you asked for a kit of components and I've not already PM'ed you then please PM me with you details so I can align the name with the userid smiley

Hi phil

Thanks , goods received. Looks good

Now I need to get the rest of the stuff. Trying to work out what to do with the buttons in the final case without being able to 3D print it. Clough42 has so much kit and availability of skill and knowledge  indicated from  viewing his videos .

I have been thinking about turning top hat bushes from plastic to fit from inside then they won’t pop out, then using some form of foam or soft rubber to provide the spring back, but all that is a long way off!  My case will be bigger to house the digital inputs to the vdf 

Im just wondering what others are planning to do , or have done.

How are people mounting the encoder and stepper on a myford?

Glad they arrived OK.

Little Top hats to sit on the buttons are a good idea, the natural spring back of the switch will be enough, I don't think you'll need any springs or foam.

There are now nineteen PCBs out there for the ELS project, not counting the ones that Clough42 sold! are there any finished or partially completed builds yet?

Is it worth setting up a thread to show peoples implementations? I can start with how far I've got, I'm not finished by a long chalk but I'm happy to post pictures and share the designs I've done for mounting the bits to a mini Warco hobby lathe.

What do you think?

Sounds good Phil do it!

Currently had an idea for the buttons, by finding a cheap calculator with round buttons n taking it apart It will need you to have the led&key board or a template with you when purchasing to check on the spacing

already looked at an old bank card pin sentry it looks good all the keys are mounted on a single rubber pad which will be cut to size when Iv got the other bits!

That's a very good idea Phil, it would be good to have somewhere where we can bounce ideas and processes based on the kind of kit we possess.

For me personally I'm going to modify my SP 2102 mini lathe but can't work out what Stepper/Servo motor I would need on this little lathe. I'm thinking one on the lines of a Nema 23 of 2 newtons of power would be more than sufficient.

The buttons idea is a good one, I have some redundant remotes that I can pillage, hmm must look at the buttons on the Sky remotes, some nice arrow ones on there!

Having taken a board from Phil and studied all the you-tube videos, I have decided it is going to be too much for me so won't be going any further with this project. As a result if anybody still needs a board, I have one looking for a good home. The board is free to anybody who wants it, just send me a pm with your address. The first person to respond gets it.

Anthony is the lucky first responder so the board has a new owner. Good luck to all the brave people who are taking this project on, please let us know how you are getting on.
