Old_Wico_R-D

Hi,

  Months of watching this forum for a time and today joined. 25 years in Electronics. Last project was
making an Alarm clock with dawn simulation for alarm. My mistake using Motorla HC11 chip. All parts
are inside a Pac Tec box. So, looks like the company stop making the size I used. I write in the ASM
Language, but may try C++ if needed. Looking to get into Johnny-Five with Firmata software. Any
other companies make plastic boxes or it's off to the 3d printer for me? I do PC board design and layout
myself. Yes, I was working for Wico in R & D and have several trackballs for development.

I use OKW cases - They will even mill/screen print the cases for you.

I will design & code for you, but I will also charge you (PM me)

Ok, in England is a little far away for me to order boxes. But thanks any way. The other is cost of
Custom plastic parts always is more than a 3d print. Knew about Hammond Mfg. long ago but it's
just a plastic box to me. Very much the same as ploy case dot c with a clear cover. Oh Well. it's
3d printing for me. I must have a fuse holder because my zero crossing circuit takes 110 VAC
direct into a opto coupler with a resistor in series. Must separate hi-voltage from input of micro.
Sure you can use a 1 meg ohm resistor to an input and the micro thinks it's a square wave. But you
lose the point of zero crossing to a point where brown outs never get detected. My design is spot on.
Custom is $$$$$$ to me and mistakes I make just cost time to fix.

England? I thought they were based in Italy!  :o
