Hey guys. I'm looking for a member of the forum who has access to a Vacuum former, to make and print me a mould out of Polycarbonate for a project. It's a bit silly as I work for an engineering company and the only tool they (and every manufacturing company in the area I’ve talked to) don't have under the sun is what I'm looking for. I'm happy to pay for materials/labour. PM me if you can help and thanks in advance.

Hey all, I'm looking for some strip board with 1.27mm/0.05" pitch to match that used on the Deltang rx31. My searches thus far have proved fruitless, but I wondered if anyone might have any better ideas where to look?

Thanks in advance.

Get some regular strip board and cut the tracks in half? It's what I've always used. I think you can get some on RS, but it's not cheap.

RS and Farnell sell it, but as Rory says, it's not cheap. If you only have a few 0.050" pitch parts to fit you could look into adapters or just cut some 0.1" pitch board as Rory suggests.

The 0.050" pitch board is often an array of square pads rather than strips so you need to wire between pins somehow.

Hey people.

Does anyone have any of those 6mm diameter weensy little planetary motors for sale? I would be after 4.

Output speed of 700 + rpm would be handy. Not really fussed about output shaft so long as it has one lol

Cheap and cheerful would be nice :)

This is a bit of a long shot, but does anyone have any of the tiny Parker X-valve (pdf) solenoid valves they wouldn't mind parting with for monetary compensation? (or failing that, a supplier with a low or no minimum order...)

Sorry Joey my old xvalve is broken. It also has far too little flow for an ant. The rs valve is better.


Does anyone have 1mm grade 5 available I need 3 pieces about 1" by 5" for the aws

Thanks
