This spedo woud hav kum in handy then! it readz in 1/10 mph!

The tak iz on the rite, the speedometer on the left abuv it. Wen I replase the LEDz I will eliminate the exesiv dijits. I dont need to know my speed and rpm to the tenth and dont think the tirez woud make it to 9,999.9 mph.

I had an idea last nite for a dijital gas gaje - A mini camera looking at a stick with the numberz on it! :)

I'm getting slow in my declining yirz, kuz I had the idea uv giving up on the numberz altogether and just sticking a camera in the tank a few weks ago. In my yunger daze the numbered stick idea woud hav popped up a second later.

Its not quite so simpl, kuz I want the number to fill the entire screen, making it go from 1 number to the next without being part way between the 2, and uv course, not fluctuating up and down wildly wile driving all add complexity, but its looking really doable.

I hav several old selfonez laying around that coud supply the screen and camera. The first thing to see iz if the camera will liv in gasoline.

How about putting a chipmunk in the gas tank and counting the squeals. Lots of squeals - the tank is empty. No squeals - the tank is full and the chipmunk is dead. Then you have to get another chipmunk.

Or... I could loan you a lighter - I found this morning on my beach walk. It is a mechanical version, but I am sure that you could rig a starter of some sort. Then with a series of mirrors...

Indeed - you blow and listen :o , cause blowing will create bubbles that you can hear if there is gas, and no bubbles will mean you are low on gas. I read of a beekeeper above the Arctic Circle that used this technique to know when to add sugar water (food) for his bees during the winter.

Created the RMSLR over the last 3 daze. RER MAN SEL LEK REKUVRR (rear main seal leak recoverer). Between this and the Olympics, I havent been posting much here.

The recoverer I mentioned earlier wuz a quik proof uv consept made out uv a peanut butter jar. It recoverez the oil, but haz to be emptied regularly. The next step wuz to hav a valve at the bottom to drain it back into the enjin. The optionz were to drill a new hole in the valve cover or replase the breather cap with a RMSLR/breather cap. I went with the 2nd option kuz it haz better product potential and duznt put steel chips under the valve cover.

I chanjed the readout on a frequensy counter from red to blue and it works! I almost feel like an electronics guy!
JUMPRD SPEDO copy.jpg

Hard to see, but therez a bunch uv wirez going from the pinz on the 3 big blue LED numberz to the padz on the srkit bord where the orijinal small red 4 number unit wuz connected.

Herez a screen shot uv it rigged up to test on my milling machine:

Made a proper case for it today.
NYQ SPEDO KAS copy.jpg


Notis the little .0 dijit iz missing. Its actually still there, but the blue filter apparently completely blocks the red lite. I wuz expecting it to be purple. The set uv filter sheets haz a liter blueish color that I'll try and if it duznt work, I'll replase that corner with red. All it really duz iz block the unlit segments, otherwize they get illuminated by ambient lite making it difficult to see wich are on and wich arent.

Been stymied by chanjing the tak readout to green. I hav green 4 dijit readouts, but they turned out to be the rong polarity. I got another from DigiKey with the correct common anode configuration, but it wuz way too dim. THEN I got singl dijits and spent 5 owrz jumpering them in. Briter, but still not nearly brite enuf - invizable in daylite.

After more reserch, it seemz green iznt available in ultra brite.

Now my idea iz to replase the individual segment LEDz in the way too dim green display with wite. Its going to be another big pile uv owrz, but I'm confident it will work.

At this point, you must no I'm being entirely unreazonable on this, kuz ordinary sane peeps woud hav given up and sed 'so the tak iz red insted uv green. Big deal.' :roll:

How to kill 4 daze

Postby JO 753 » Sat Sep 03, 2016 10:14 am

How to chanj the color uv your readout in 10 eazy steps.

You can do it! All you need iz an ordinary household milling machine and soddering gun, plus a wee bit uv patiens.

1. Dig around in your junk drawer till you find sum LEDz in the color you want, a little teflon insulated 26 ga. sirkit board jumper wire, 4 mil FR4 bare fiberglass innerlayer, JB Weld epoxy, soder, sodering paste, and uv course, a doner LED readout.

2. Disembowel the doner readout with a .187 carbide 2 flute endmill. A depth uv 4 mm will leav enuf uv the lite gide to fully illuminate each number segment.

Be sure to zero on a corner and get your X Y Z limits befor you start.

(Sorry cant get this to put multipl piks in rite in 1 post, so I'll just do 1 per post)

You shoud take the depth in 2 or 3 steps kuz uv the varying strength uv materialz within. Trying to go full depth all at wuns coud pull the part out uv the vise & destroy it AND your expensive endmill!

3. Prepare 7 LEDz per dijit (8 if you need the desimal points) by shortening them to 3.5 mm from the base. (you can uze the mill agen, but I happen to hav a Hardinge toolroom lathe, so it wuz eazier to cut them off with a fine groov tool. Also, you can do it with a belt sander or a file.)

4. Super glue the LEDz directly abuv each number segment. Herez the readout case with haf the LEDz installed:
WiT LED 4.jpg


If you found 3mm LEDz youre luckyer than me! Mine were 5 mm diameter, so I had to file them all to fit closely enuf together to fit.

5. Wire all the + terminalz in each number together with 1 terminal sticking out the bottom or top abuv where the pad on your srkit board iz.

In this project, the 6 padz on the bottom & 6 on top started at 18.75mm frum 1 side and 2.5mm spase between each.

Then, fill in the empty space with JB Weld or other good quality slow set epoxy. Emty spase can allow the LEDz to break free and not illuminate there segments az well. And it coud possibly cauze heat to bild up, leading to early failure.

6. After the glue sets, straiten all the - terminalz and plase it back in the mill. Zero on a corner and pozition a .7 to 1mm drill abuv each terminal, riting down the X Y coordinate.

Then uzing 2 sided tape, attach a piece uv 4mil FR4 fiberglass bare innerlayer board the same size az your readout to any piece uv expendable rijid but soft material, such az wood or plexiglass. Re zero on a corner uv that and drill holez at the locationz uv the terminalz.

Slop more JB Weld over the LEDz and slide your drilled FR4 over the terminalz. Make sure it will set flat by putting popsikl sticks on ej between the terminalz and put a small block uv steel on top till its set. (JB takes about 10 owrz before its firm enuf, 24 for full cure)

7. Jumper the - terminalz frum the same segment in each number together. For exampl, the top segment in number 1, 2, 3 and 4 need to be connected. Same with all the segments.

LED readouts work by turning on individual segments to form a number. Simple, if you only hav 1 dijit, but wen there are 2 or more, you either run each wun with a completely seperate srkit (very cumbersum) or you time share a single serkit. So, like in this case with 4 dijits, the + on the 1st number iz activated at the same time az the top midl & bottom horizontl and top & botm rite virtikl - terminalz to make a 3 for 1/4 second, then the 2nd number + will be activ and the - terminalz for the segments to form wutever number iz next.
WiT LED 7.jpg


If you arent worried about making the thing too thick, you can do sum uv the terminalz, then add another layer for the rest. Or, you can jumper with completely insulated wirez, not worrying about creating a short where they cross over. Either way, it helps to plan your routing beforhand to keep thingz tidy.

Test your connectionz! Nothing wors than having to de-mummify your srkit just kuz 1 segment duznt work!

8. The final step iz to cover this layer with more JB Weld and another rektangl uv FR4.

9. Take a brake. Lissen to sum Pink Floyd. Get sum sleep. Watch a movie. Really, I had a cassette player going for the hole project. Keeps your brain frum coagulating with boredom. But a clear hed iz needed befor you try to wire it to your devise.

10. If you properly pozitioned the terminalz, this will go fairly smoothly. Make sure the readout sits flat on the srkit board. File any hi spots down if needed. Then just sodder all the terminalz to the padz.

If the electron God favorz you and your project, it will work.
WiT LED 10.jpg


I like the wite, but its very brite, so I still may make it green with filter film. I think I'll try turquoise and yellow also.

Now that its dun, everybody I show it to will be awstruck, even incredulous, knowing that anything other than red in this devise simply duznt exist.

"JO! Thats incredible! I dont believ my eyez! It must be frum the future or made by an advansed alien sivilization!

You made that? GET OUT! YOU LIE! NO WAY! Really? You did that in only 4 dayz? NO! I cant believ it!"


Then they will either worship me az a tek demi god or despize & fear me az sum sorta Captain Nemoesque danjerous superjenius.

Only cave dwelling hermit ignoramusez who dont no that this particular size uv readout iznt available in ultrabrite green (or wutever non red color I pik) will think 'so wut? big deal.'

I hav dun many great thingz.

I will do many more.

Anybody paying attention to this? You better! I may quiz you at any time!

Hercule! Send in Maria Gambrelli!

I tested all the colorz I hav. The yellow looked OK. The orijinal bezel made it a kool violet, plus left the red .0 dijit perfectly vizable. The green completely block the red. The turquoise (it mite be 'cyan') made it look exactly like the speedometer blue. Not wut I want, plus its too lite to obscure the unlit segments.

Wut works best iz the yellow plus the turquoise. Makes it green, yet the red iz still slitely vizable az dark oranj. I will be able to thin it out on the mill to make it briter. Even tho 1/10 rpm iz silly, it looks kool and you need to see that last dijit wile setting the unit's parameterz.

Eazily vizable in full daylite, yet not too brite at nite.

Old intermediate teknolojy contraptionz are fun to scoff at. They are alwayz bulky, expensiv, hard to uze.

The Uber self driving taxi fleet iz obviously going to be an outstanding example. And it wont take 20 yirz befor its getting jeered at. Many major car makerz alredy hav self driving carz in development - I'v alredy posted about Tesla and Rollz Royse here.

But, wudqino? Maybe it will be a fashion trend, like steampunk, and jiant contraptionz perched on the roof will be the hottest style.

Apparently, mekaniks began training az children bak then, so the had a sort uv kartoon karakter to help make the material appealing to them.

I put 'speed bleeder' brake bleeder valvez in several months ago. They are suppoze to keep air from getting sucked into the brake caliper pistonz when you are bleeding them. Its just a spring loaded ball valve. Good idea, eazy to make, so it shoud work.

But they dont. Probably made too cheaply. Got them at O'Rielly'z.

Went for nise ride today. All the way up to Wisconsin. Didnt intend to, but being perpetually lost, I didnt find Rt 14 auto parts on Rt 14.

I shoud hav put the adress in my Garmin befor I left, but in a rediculous moment uv brash overconfidens, I figured 'I wuz there a month ago, and its rite on Rt 14, so I cant miss it.' Problem iz that its actually on Rt 120 on a section that runz parrelel to Rt 14 befor crossing Rt 14. So I spent about an owr and u haf & 9 gallonz rolling thru farm land and small townz. Stopped at a car repair joint after turning back in Wisconsin and asking where Rt 14 junkyard iz at. The guy laffed at me kuz its about 20 milez. He gave me directionz, but it didnt help. I ended up calling a pal who gave me the adress and then I put it in the Garmin.

Still a nise ride. Sunny, not hot, not cold. Senery. Got a good test uv the krooz control (it dips about 5 mph befor akselerating). Still got to the junkyard in time to get sum seats. Got a good workout kuz my toolbox wayz about 80 pownz and the seats are about 25 each.
