No, don't get me wrong. I like the looks of it, but I built logic into way to many relays that
switch and latch, and every once in a while, they just get stuck and the whole entire panel
needs to be t...

My control panel sucks. layed out a bunch of switches, relays, and momentary latching
switches, and everything works fine, but the behavior of the switches and relays I'm unhappy
with as they lock u...

terrazza, got any more details on your rig?Oh, it's just been an ongoing project for a few yeas
ago I started back when I saw kals design. Still not operational. Specs: 1.5bbl finished
product (there ...

Entire different approach, used 4" TCs and fittings to mount directly to tank.

Late at getting back to this, but those tippy dumps are used for cleaning purposes. I went
ahead with the plans and have since finished e/t. I haven't had a chan e to get it across two
states to where...

Oh man, I see the problem... the head assembly is not aligned with the pump motor. When i was
building my stand, it tipped over at one point and I now realize that the pumps took the
impact. That suck...

I need some help figuring out what's wrong with my two new pumps. I bought them both from
PexUniverse online. They shipped brand new. When I power them both up, they just hum. The fan
in the back does...

No, you put the led between the 1k ohm resistor and the capacitor. One thing to know about all
diodes, including LEDs is that they only pass current one direction- great for dc, but ac
presents a prob...

Would this be a correct schematic for still using the same led switches on 120VAC line?
Posted in thread: Looking for cool Piezo switches for control panel on 02-21-2012 at 05:34 AM
That's not so easy because of the power requirement. A blue LED is about 3.5V forward voltage,
so you'd need to dirop 117V. Assuming current of 0.02A (typical for single leds), R = V/I = 117
/ 0.02 = ...
