Not my latest purchases, but my most recent ones vaguely interesting, one of these handy little usb current/voltage testers

and one of these component testers - saves squinting at faded resistance colours

I bought one of those component testers (like in the link) a while back.  It is indeed very handy.  Especially for less than $10.00.

I just bought a bottle of this cleaning concentrate.


Worked well to clean bugs off airplane wings. Wonder if it be effective to remove solder flux.]

Hi,
@raymw be  very careful you don't put the ribbon, where it is coming out of the display, under any stress.
I bought two of these and only one would work if the flex strip was positioned in a certain way.

The bend in the ribbon is more extreme than is shown in the picture.

For work I purchased the unit that came in a case.

Thanks for the warning. It probably needs putting in a case, if only to keep the bottom of the pcb away from any metal, bare wires, etc. (My Unos, I double sided taped an old credit card on the bottom! They are about the right size, and have rounded corners.)

I think it really ties the room together:



It helps me get 'in the zone', or maybe just zone out.
What, I need to say something else too?

I read about a random number generator somewhere, that used a lava lamp and a camera. The number was generated by the positions, shapes and sizes of the blobs. That would be cool. Wouldn't even need to be a camera - perhaps just put light detectors all over the glass surface.
