Damn, I bought this a few days ago to play with - www.banggood.com/5V-12V-ZVS-Induction-Heating-Power-Supply-Module-With-Coil-p-1015637.html
I wish I'd seen the other one  :doh:

What don't they sell!

Looks like Banggood is the mad-modders ultimate toy shop!

I am having to sit on my hands when reading these threads!

Sure mate , shall I stick it in the post  :lol:




As you can see Bob has been at it  :)  , I now have all the toys to desolder stuff ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sort of all the gear ,no idea  :lol:

Smoke was emanating from between the two inductors .




So to see whats what you have to remove the two capacitors from underneath .



To remove the inductors ,



To get to the things that have had the ID scrubbed , for F*&k sake it a friggin toy , why!   :bang:




These turned out to be N channel MOSFET,s



The diodes test OK



 

As do the resistors



So can the magic smoke be released and the heater stop working , then the parts test ok under no load ? 

It died due to some tit not limiting  the max current on his bench PSU   :zap:

So that's the project , just build it bigger  :thumbup:

Hi people.
for those of you who have the scope kit I just received and fitted the plastic case kit and I have a few tips for you.

first thing is the LED at the bottom of the main board, this needs to be flush with the board or it will be squashed.
then, after the display part of the case is done and you fit the main board, there are 4 nuts to hold the board in place, DON'T tighten these up too much or the switches lock up. what I did was to run the nuts up so they touch the board then put locknuts on and lock them together.

this holds the board in place and also, the locknut comes flush with the side pieces of the case so when the back piece is fitted the rear nuts can tighten up without bending the plastic.

the only annoying thing is, at the top r/h side of the board is a two pin connector for the power supply, they forgot to leave a cutout in the case for this so it's inaccessible.

other than that it certainly protects the board and screen so I'm quite happy with it.


PS
by the way Rob, I seem to have accidentally ordered the airband receiver  :Doh: :Doh: I can't understand how that could have happened. :) :lol: :lol: :D

have fun guys.

Roy.
I used to be confused, now I just don't know.

 :lol: :lol: Aye it happens Roy    :thumbup:   , I still have to put my kit  together  :zap:  , So is it worth getting the plastic case for the DSO ?

Hi Rob and welcome back.

yes, I think it's worth while, it protects the screen if nothing else.

I put my radio together yesterday and guess what, the damn thing doesn't work and one of the transistors seems to be getting rather warm.

Time to use all the skills I haven't got to try to fix it  :doh:

I reckon we should get a madmodder discount considering how much we are all spending there.
Turns out this life c**p is just one big distraction from death but a good one. For the love of god dont give yourself time to think.

Rob,
I haven't got a clue as yet.
I have to be in the right frame of mind to start trying to figure it out.

or I could send it to you to fix. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's really annoying that of all these kits this is one I could use and it's bust.

ho hum.

Roy,
Which tranny is getting warm?

Have you checked you got the components in the right way round? :zap:

Just write EF91 on it and call it a valve ... it'll be fine then ...  :zap:

It's the one designated U1 on board.
it's a 78LO8. same edge of the board as the BNC socket between two caps.

After following this thread from the beginning, I have finally succumbed and gone and ordered the oscilloscope and transistor tester kits (with case). I have no idea how to use an oscilloscope and I have only ever soldered one small PCB before in my life. Such trivial details are not significant are they :scratch:? And to make matters worse I've ordered the version that needs SMD components soldering :doh:.

Mr Wilson - you are a bad influence :poke:. Giving people like me ideas above their station. Whatever next?

SMD components eh. good luck with that. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
If you've never used them before I suggest you get a test board as mentioned in a previous post, the're cheap enough to screw up  mutilate construct and give some practice.

here's one, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DIY-Kit-SMT-SMD-Component-Welding-Practice-Board-Soldering-Practice-UK-seller-/351548500382?hash=item51d9ec699e:g:V~MAAOSwT6pV36QW

It's all fun I tell you, well that's what they told me anyway. :)

Little 8V 100mA voltage regulator .. Maybe a short cct. somewhere else on the board ??

They also get damned hot as do most regulator chips if you get them reverse connected.  :(

Ok lads

A question for the electronics chaps ,   I would like to build a circuit that would charge up a bank of capacitors to anywhere between say  10v  to  35v and when charged  to the set voltage disconnect the power supply from the capacitor bank .   

Any pointers ?   :scratch:

Just stocking up on a few bits mate  :thumbup:    , capacitors ,transistors, trimmer pots  ,perf board ,wee switches ands a peltier junction to play with ,  every project I look at I need parts  :bang:


Where you at your daughter's over the weekend ?
