I also do a bit of electronics despite being red/green colorblind.


"Charger for 8vdc Cyclon battery pack, component side"






"Charger for 8vdc Cyclon battery pack, trace side" I don't like messy perfboards.





"Semi-Mechanical H-Bridge" -- breadboard execution. From a schematic in a library book.

Did you know that mosfet transistors don't like to switch at 8vdc? Neither did I, until I had to trouble-shoot these boards. They work fine at 10v or 12v.

That's what happens when you get a liberal arts education and then decide to build robots.
