After reading my last post I realized that I forgot to put specs on the RC circuit (not radio control). The resistors are 1/2 watt 4.7k ohm resistors and the capacitors are 50v 1uf capacitors. Just in case you missed it the RC circuit is required for the arduino to talk or control the chair with out the chair controller dumping. Continue reading →

Hello my name is GunGeek and I have a confession to make, I am a Gun Geek. I am an avid Second Amendment supporter and enthusiast and I have worked in the firearms industry for over 7 years and am one of those lucky people who love what I do. I am also a HUGE geek, I love technology, I am proficient in Home theater design, computer repair, computer programming, HTML, PHP, CSS, VB, console-PC gaming (sorry xbox people but not Xbox), and I am just forcing myself to learn C#.

Recently I got into microcontrollers and to make a really long story short I decided to attempt to control a wheel chair with a microcontroller.

I made this a while ago and did a video series on making a welding table. I figured I should put it here on my website.
This is a real quick tutorial on how to use HDMI to record your PS3 game play using the HD PVR 2 Gaming edition. I don't know why but it always...
Recently I acquired a New Holland 1012 Bale Wagon from a friend.
A while back I bought a 1968 John Deere 3020 tractor. After having some issues with the starting and charging system I decided to switch it over to...
