Planes and deburring

An uneventful summer, busier than crap and I haven’t had a lot of time to do things. Well, I have but it’s been so damned hot outside that it’s almost intolerable. I’ve been working on a couple of things but most notable I’ve built the drive for an electrochemical deburring machine.

Deburring machine prototype control

Electrochemical deburring relies on passing current through the piece from the┬ápositive┬áterminal (the part) to the anode. The part and the anode are submersed in a fluid and current is passed through, deburring the part. You have to reverse the current for a short time as well because the part gets detritus on it. This is a pretty neat project thus far but it’s been slow gfoing since there is so much to do here at work.

Also on the repetoire is more plane flying. I have a few AXN floaters and some other stuff such as…

AXN Floater

I also have a little FPV backpack that I might be more inclined to try once I get some goggles.

FPV Camera

The FPV backpack works fine. I can power it from the charge cables on the 3S battery. Only problem is trying to focus on a really small screen. hence why goggles are a must. I did try to fly my axn floater via FPV but I was way too distracted by the actual plane itself and consequently crashed into a nearby parking lot.

Anyways, perhaps there’ll be more to say about things that are happening. The Deburring machine should be complete soon so I may put a picture up of that when the time comes.

As an aside, here is some video from my new 808 Keychain camera (#16) be sure to switch to 720p
