AT PSU For The Win

yay most of my power supply issues are over now. today i got to the city and i was able to get the parts i wanted for my AT power supply, i needed some 10 watt resistors, thought what i did not know was what resistance to get, so i got some 5ohm ones, but thankfully they come in pairs so i was able to get the ohms for what i needed, i just paired them up in series so get what i needed. and now my AT PSU works  great for what i need it for, tommorrow i will test it out some more with the steppers so that i know it is working. i was also able to get a few other things i needed still so that was very very good.

i got them at B&E electronics in regina the guy who helped me was more than willing to go out of his way and help me, and was able to give me some good advice, so i will recommend them again with out any issues and there prices were more than good, then again i have not really shopped around too much, i was able to get my hands on a nice shrink tubing for my connections and some nice bare metal butt connectors too.

but all in all a good day.

and another interesting little tidbit was that last night i was able to get my arduino to read 1 thermistor, and post it to my lcd screen, so that did work, i am having issues trying to figure out how to do this for 2 temp inputs, but hey i am learning. and i am making progress, now to find some belts and pulleys any one have any good tips,  i think i will need a rather long one. if you wanna know why just look at some of my first posts and you will see my frame. i think i will have one of the largest units out there when this is all said and done.
