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.
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.
