X700 INSTALLATION OF A MILLIAMPEREMETER

I have been wanting to install a milliamperemeter in my lasercutter/engraver for some time. The reason for this is that i haven’t been able to make the lasertubes last as long as they are advertised. I recently  purchased a Reci 100W tube, and this time i want it to last as long as possible. Here is a link to the tube i ordered. The life span can reach 10,000 hours if the current is kept below 26mA. Here is the analogue...

The idea: Make the fillament go trough a gear that rotates with teeth...

IPSC TIMER

This timer was made specially for solo training in the sport of practical shooting. The device works just like a regular IPSC timer and also has the ability to enter the score into it after the shooting and it will automatically calculate the score factor. This has been tested on a shooting range and works great. It has been made using Makerbot Replicator 3D Printer for the chassis and Probotix Fireball V90 CNC for routing the PCBs....

4 AXIS ROBOTIC ARM

This is a 3 week build i did during my summer vacation. As some of my projects are relatively expensive to do i sometimes recycle my projects, and this one is no exception. I used the electronics from my Cube 3D Printer. The robotic arm itself was made on my Makerbot Replicator 3D printer. The wooden structure was made using my Probotix Fireball V90 CNC router This is not a finished project. I have to make some sort of gripping end...
