Been a little while since I’ve posted anything on here, so I thought I’d give you all some updates on current and future projects.
With the Weasley Clock, I’ve been painstakingly close to having this finished for a few months now, but haven’t had the time to really sit down and just finish it! I have all of the working pieces now (Servo motors, raspberry pi, CloudMQTT account, clock hands), but I’ve been running into some problems finding servo gears and hubs that solve the problems I’m running into, and connect together correctly. Since my wife and I are currently saving to buy a house (yay!!), my project budget has been slashed pretty drastically, so unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to complete this one until closer to November and December…
In the meantime, I have been putting some serious time into updating this website! I’m currently building a new wordpress theme for this site that will move patpeters.org into both a portfolio site for myself and a blog of projects I’m working on. I should have the theme finished up in the next week or two, and it’ll be great to get that off of my plate and out on the open internet! Creating a new wordpress theme has been on my projects list for quite some time now (better part of a year), but it’s been a labor of love.
Lastly, I’ve been scoping out potential new projects to start, and found this guy about 2 weeks ago. This is coming from the YouTube channel, La Fabrique DIY, definitely check out this channel for fun DIY projects!
The project of his I’m most interested in is his frisbee launcher! Looks fairly simple to make, and other than some Bike wheel components (extra nuts, gears and washers) I believe I have all of the materials already to make this!
As usual, I’ll keep all of you posted on current and future projects! Thanks for tuning in!
