Router Plunge Base for KRESS

New Spindle: This last christmas I decided to invest in a new spindle for my CNC so I can carry out bigger jobs, my main spindle works great but it’s not very powerful and I would rather leave it for PCB and delicate jobs, while using a more heavy-duty one for wood and rough jobs. I decided to get a Dewalt, but after lots of checking I found out that the European prices are almost twice the american ones, makin

MiniE Enclosure

MiniE slider dolly enclosure

Introduction: The electronics of this project was made a long time ago, after I have built several motion controllers with Arduino and stepper motors with different results. Most of them were simple one potentiometer kind of controller to allow movement in both directions, but soon this became too simple and hard replicate. I found this little company which made some motion controllers and offered a Kit to make a sma

PL2 DIY Kit enclosure

Introduction: The Pl2 or “PI L Squared” it´s a tiny synth developed by the Ploytec team at Berlin. I was fascinated by their tiny synth when it came out because it had quite a distinctive 8 bit retro sound and I always have been a fan of this nostalgic sound… For me the main interest in this device came from the fact that is tiny and can be powered from either MIDI or USB depending in their versions

Midibud

MidiBud is a DIY MIDI controller with a 16×2 display, EEPROM, push-button encoder and 5 buttons. The design is based on the Mutable Instruments MIDIpal. This is a revision of the board made by the Midisizer guys, so you can order your own PCB + Atmega Pre-programmed, get the list of components and build your own!! What is MIDIPAL?: The MIDIpal is a smart little MIDI processor. Insert it between a MIDI keyboard (

Ultrasonic – MIDI Controller – ETHERUS

ETHERUS is my ultimate MIDI performance music controller based around arduino. It´s a dream come true after years of try an error and I am happy to explain you here some of its history. Put your hands in the air: Since I started digging in to DIY, my very first project was a simple Theremin. I´ve been always fascinated by the fact that was one of the first synthesizers, created by Leon Theremin a visionary which was

Arduino DIY MIDI Shield

A bit of CNC Workaround: This is one of the first successful tests I made using my CNC. A simple Arduino MIDI shield to use in my projects using just 4 wires, GND and voltage plus Serial Rx and Tx. At first most of the tedious work was to get my head around the workflow. First, you need to have a good understanding of Eagle Cad software,  how to use the components and width of the traces to get a proper CNC work. It
