Anyone planning to learn Fusion 360?

To anyone planning to learn Fusion 360: there's a copy of the "Make: Fusion 360 for Makers" book in a recent Humble Bundle (along with some other interesting books on 3D printing and electronics). Be aware that the bundle won't last longer than a week from now. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/ele...

Re: PSU bracket remake ?

Honestly, a lot of distractions have kept me away from this. Feel free to do your own version. Perhaps my Sketchup-version can be of help, I actually got really far with the design, only to end up with hard-to-fix bugs in the model. I concluded that I had to start all over again using Fusion 360 but...

Re: Internal UltraSatan

Yeah, he was just very busy moving at the time and he didn't have an internet connection for a while.

So after a while I got the drivers and indeed, they're very good.

Re: Resistor exploded in my monitor

:bravo: Thanks, I'm pretty happy with it! The only thing that remains (and this was an issue right after the recap, before the regulator broke down) is that when adjusting the horizontal position, the screen jumps down a few lines when in a specific part of the adjustment range. I also notice a ben...

Re: Resistor exploded in my monitor

I replaced the power regulator with a brand new one (the previous one was salvaged from a broken monitor) and the PSU is perfectly stable again.

Re: Strange part connected to flyback of Atari SC1224

Dielectric = insulation.. That is, it would take for example over 7,500 volts for it to arc though the insulation to whatever its next to ( such as anything metal etc). So you really want that figure as high as possible. I don't know the voltages on those lopt's though, they can be as high as 30,00...

Re: Strange part connected to flyback of Atari SC1224

For now, I'm aiming at replacing the flyback and leaving the tripler in place. Since I'll need to cut the anode cup from the new flyback and connect the new flyback to the tripler, I'm going to have to connect the two HV wires while maintaining proper insulation. I found these instructions today: ht...

Re: Strange part connected to flyback of Atari SC1224

Okay, so the manual actually does mention the tripler as an H.R.T. but no specs are listed.
