Finnish infestation of the forum continues
« on: October 01, 2017, 02:34:38 PM »
Hello Everyone !

Reasons I joined this forum:
- I have something to share with You
- It is a well moderated forum

Things I could help You on:
- Old electronics with vacuum tubes and such
- Newer electronics with discrete semiconductors and simple IC's
- Modern electronics with microcontrollers surface mounted components and such
- Programming with ASM, C, C++, ...
- Circuit design and fabrication (DIY high density circuit density boards)

Things I might need Your help on:
- Machining
- Ideas

I was diagnosed asperger some 50 years ago. Back then they did not call it asperger but rather autism. It is a very mild variant of that but it makes me sometimes to throw a frog on the table. For me that has been more like an asset than a disability. I am very pedant and tolerate repetitivie tasks endlessely like most people like me do. Typing mistakes ... much of those.

Started my electronic hobby before I started to talk to people. About the age of 7. Have done quite a lot of that ... both talking and electronics.

In my hamschack I have a decent equipment:
- Audio generator
- RF generator
- Audio frequency counter (0.001 Hz accuracy)
- RF counter (0.1 Hz accuaracy)
- four channel 100 MHz Tektronix oscilloscope
- vacuum tube multimeter
- at least 4 ordinary DVM's
- Low voltage power supply. Adjustable 0 - 30V, 0-5A.
- High voltage power supply 0-4kV, 0-40mA
- Variable AC supply 0-330V AC 50Hz, fullyt isolated
- Surface mount rework station
- decent Metcal soldering "iron"
- pin through rework station
... goes on for several pages. The component stock is another BIG story

My metal working tools are much less:
- chinese lathe
- cheap drill press
- mini milling machine (actually micro) used for drilling holes on printed circuit boards
- bench grinder. This has a white stone of 30 centimeters in diameter and has a frequency converte on it.
- lot of hand tools

Last a picture of my lathe. Downloaded this from the commercial site.

Wellocome :wave:

I can prove that I am normal. My mom got me diagnosed.

I have dystolexia and some other undocumened features. Then again, most of the time I'm in right comppany.

Welcome from me too. I'm not from Finland, but some of my favorite music is by your rautalanka bands, the Mustangs, Regents, and Agents to mention a few. Look forward to the infestation.  :wave:
