Just a question here to gauge the receptiveness to a couple of things a electronics engineer friend of mine is working on that he may offer for sale as either a kit, a set of simple plans with simple to acquire parts or as completely plug and play unit.
At the moment he has built a remote control for me and it’s on it’s way in the mail so I can try it out.
I should be able to use it both for 240V 1ph and 120V 1 ph. It uses any remote control you may have in your junk drawer so if you break or lose one, you can always grab the one the wife uses to watch Oprah or Dr. Oz or American Idle.
It should also have a 5 minute delay so that the unit runs for 5 minutes after you turn it and your machine off. Did I explain that right?
Would there be any interest is something like this among the LJ’s here?
A complete ready to go unit should be under $70 and a set of plans would probably run $20… These are estimated as I’m just looking at demographics for him.
