Traffic Light Project #4: Assembly test (video)

1264 days ago by souichiro | 1 comment »

Well, today was a great day for this project :) I was able to get the lenses and hoods mounted, and the entire circuit mounted on a temporary base for testing. It all works! One change is that I will make the base “box” as a light controller only for now. I am afraid that I won’t be able to complete it by his birthday (a week away from delivery). So what I plan on doing is making a box for the base that has the light control circuit in it. And then I can make a ̶...

Here is the final (as of this point) wiring on the light controller circuit. I’ll get the power controller for this part added shortly. This is a really simple circuit with only two IC’s. One is a 555 timer chip that will create a pulse at an interval determined by adjusting a potentiometer (from about 2 a second all the way to about 4 or 5 seconds).

Now I’m waiting for the paint to dry, and assembly of the “lamp” portion tomorrow. I’ll post as soon as I can get it together, and post a video as soon as I...

Traffic Light Project #1: Getting my ideas straight...

1281 days ago by souichiro | 3 comments »

Well, I’ve been busy at work on a new project over the last few weeks. It started after Christmas, while I was tinkering around with my new “no pressure” list and I came across a facebook post from my sister. “Does anyone know where to get a traffic light” she says. So she gets some very good responses, and even a link to a website that sells a nice looking plastic one…..for $75! And, being a Lumberjock, what do I say?....... “I can make that̶...
