I "finally" got my little coil wound:
The new little winder and speed and torque controller work perfectly ;-))
About a thirty minute job, but the wire spool needs a bit of a
tension take up cushion thing like those old 1960's tape drives had
:o)) I could just "grab" the wire if anything went wrong and it
gracefully stopped for the fix.
I did replace the counter switch with a magnetic security window
alarm switch from Radio Shack.
I drilled a collar to fit the long 1/4 inch magnet and made a little
holder for the enclosed reed switch. They only way to go there!!
I should replace the counter with one of these:
DK# Z186-ND needs no external power to count has a switch to reset so
it is super simple. But what I got now works fine...
So the question is... I have a polycarbonate tube and internal and caps:
What sort of glue will mate them??? I hear "super glue" reacts bad
with water in polycarb to make it all frosty. Many things "don't
stick". I am thinking epoxy or "gorilla glue". Rather not use
anything that has a terrible smell since it is indoors...
I got the Envirotex Lite ready to go to coat it now. I made a little
test thing and it looks great. Cool how a little "breath" or CO2 off
a propane torch "boils" the bubbles out. I bet a little dry ice near
by would work good too... It has zero to do with heat but is rather
some odd chemical reaction with CO2 that breaks the bubbles.
