Or would you like to give the LED Chase Lights Circuit I posted above a go to see how that compares to the mechanical method?)Dino.

Quote from: Tony Farrell on May 26, 2016, 10:08 amUnlike you Dino, I'm an electrical imbecile and even though you've obviously tried to make your 'hard-wiring' explanation as clear as possible, the majority of it went over my head and, even if you tried to explain it again, the result would probably be the same: I know my limitations Dino; when it comes to matters electrical, I have to pay someone to do the work for me.
Quote from: Tony Farrell on May 26, 2016, 10:08 amIf Jonathan is willing to share what little motor he's used, where he got it and how he's mounted it inside the orange lens, this may be something that I could simply copy (after all, we're both in the UK - if Jonathan got his parts here, then I ought to be able to get them as well).
Quote from: Tony Farrell on May 26, 2016, 10:08 amI'm a builder - I can draw and I can paint; give me a couple of sheets of MDF (and a decent saw) and I can make a Dalek. Give me a plastic tube and I can make a model spaceship but I am not an electrician.If I can see it, I can copy it. And, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! T
Quote from: galacticprobe on May 27, 2016, 07:16 amI know that Steve and I helped hash out the wiring for the lights in the Central Column's Central Pier, so he's got some electrical skills. Maybe he can have a go at that circuit, if nothing else just for giggles when he get a chance. (It would be nice to compare it side by side with Jonathan's motor method to see the difference in performance.)
Quote from: Tony Farrell on May 27, 2016, 02:55 pmDino, given that Stormaggeddon was so keen on all the Bat Mobile's switches at the Virginia Comicon you went to recently, why not have a go at the Movement Sensors' chaser lights yourself?
Quote from: galacticprobe on May 28, 2016, 05:00 amWhat I should have though of before now is finding a way of throwing together some sort of (possibly hexagonal?) structure and mounting his busy boxes to that like console panels. Then he could toddle around it while he tortures our eardrums, and look like a pint-sized half-pint-sized Doctor whirling about his console! (Maybe time to look into some heavy duty cardboard?)Dino.
