Quick post, a couple of drawings.

The chill is in the air, October is here. I’ve been pretty busy with the viscometer and some other things, however I drew a couple of objects just for future reference. I figured somebody might need the dimensions of either a stormer viscometer paddle (as measured from a real one) or a QY-2004A white LCD display (blue backlit)

Anyways, here are the links to the drawings in PDF format.

I’m going to draw up some of the rarer parts I have, I may need them later and somebody else might be able to make use of them. Keep in mind, these are rough drawings taken from measured features. Don’t assume that the measurements are the same for all units except perhaps the stormer paddle.

A Drawing of a Servo, for reference.

Well, my servos have all come in for a project I’ve been working on. These ones being some cheap Chinese servos that I picked up off Ebay. Here’s a photo of one of them.

Now that I have them I guess I have no excuse in not doing the project, especially since I bought so many of them, despite them being cheap. In starting my project I’ve decided to offer a PDF of a drawing for the servo since I had no idea how big they were or what they would measure until they arrived, thus, if anyone else wants the drawing, they can use the dimensions for their own purposes.
Here are a couple of pics of the drawing for reference.

As the project progresses I’ll review the functionality of the servos. After I had ordered them I had read that they are susceptible to outside interference, especially from the likes of human contact around the housing. From what I read, this made the servo “Freak out”. We’ll see I guess, I’m going to make a standard testbed circuit for testing anyways.

So, anyways, for anyone who wants it the drawing, here’s the PDF

Hopefully someone will find it useful.
