Sir Dibalot

I was having a major clear out of the garage and found this dibber. It looks like it's made from some kind of phenolic and judging by the font it's probably sixty or so years old, maybe more. Anyway I prefer individual pots for my seedlings, so I never use it. Off to the charity shop then...

Dalek Table

I found some old transformers that have been floating around in my parts drawer for over twenty years, so I decided to whip up a passive ring modulator. The diodes are 1N60P

Super Warp Generator

This is the most fun I've ever had with a resistor, a capacitor and an LED (didn't I say something similar last year ?) so I built a battery of four of them. The Razmasynth Super Warp Generator, a completely passive device that utilises a two pin RGB LED to generator sound (and light). More information on the circuit can be found here
