New project in the works.... :->

Thanks to Basir, 9W2BSR, managed to find the shop selling magent wire. Shop was closed on Monday and Tuesday and finally opened today. I told my buddy they would be closed for Raya, but we went junst in case on the outside chance that they might not be celebrating raya.... :-) Shown here a spool of 0.60mm 2Kg of wire. GET IT BY THE KILO, IT'S ALOT CHEAPER. My evil rich friend is financing this project. Actually only wanted about 310 meters, but not sure if 2Kg is sufficient. If your buy by meter it costs RM1/meter.That work out to be RM310. We paid about RM100 for 2Kg. Price varies depending on copper price in the market. We hope there is enough length in 2Kg to get our project going.

TTFN for now.

Got me a new tip.

Went to Pasar Road after a very long time. More than a year, But did not get the items i actually wanted to. Just 4 days back was searching the net for digital multimeters. Didnt have enuf moolah to get one. Anyways I finally got a finer point tip for my Hakko. Cost me only RM18. This one is 0.25mm as compared to 0.5 that comes with the iron. The older Hakko broucher show only these 2 replacement tips, the new has added 2 more. Got it from Maplin.

Next, a digital multimeter. Fluke about 550 $ Sanwa about 150 $.
