Spinning wheel

The electric spinning wheel project of Maurice Ribble is a nice project for the long cold winter months in Norway.

I’ve been working with the electronics for a while now. It has been a while since the last time I designed a printed circuit board (PCB) based on schematics and being who I am, I was extra, extra careful not to make a mess of it. After a couple of months (…), I was happy with the design and sent it to OSH Park for production. I was delighted to finally find my three copies of the pcb in the mail yesterday.

I had been gathering all the electronic components during the design process to make sure the footprint of the components fit the layout of the board. Some parts from Ebay and some from Sparkfun (a great online community and shop for electronic hobbyists. They have a huge amount of information, tutorials an downloadable libraries for EAGLE Cad.

I replaced the ATMega168 with the newer ATMega328 and programmed it using the Arduino UNO R3.

Now on to the soldering with my new Hakko FX888D and building of the mechanics!
