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

My Harmonograph V1

First thoughts: This is a project I wanted to make for a long time, thanks to my girlfriend who bought me a little book about Mathematics and music which I have in the car and kept reading constantly… Only recently I have gathered enough knowledge, information and time to accomplish some complex wood work projects. I decided to try to make my first DIY Harmonograph, a Victorian invention from 1844 that draws be

Introduction to the Harmonograph

Definition from wikipedia: A harmonograph is a mechanical apparatus that employs pendulums to create a geometric image. The drawings created typically are Lissajous curves, or related drawings of greater complexity. The devices, which began to appear in the mid-19th century and peaked in popularity in the 1890s, cannot be conclusively attributed to a single person, although Hugh Blackburn, a professor of mathematics

Programming the Arduino Micro

  I started using the Arduino Pro mini long time ago. Due to it´s small size it´s ideal for finished projects so you can easily install it inside any enclosure or project. The power consumption is very low aswell and the onboard bundled options makes it for me the perfect candidate as a “brain” in many projects. Nowadays you can find them for 2€ or less, which is incredible but truth. The new ones ha

Circuit bending workshop by Maledictis

Circuit bending guide

What is Circuit Bending Circuit bending is the creative customization of the circuits within electronic devices such as low voltage, battery-powered guitar effects, children’s toys and digital synthesizers to create new musical or visual instruments and sound generators. Emphasizing spontaneity and randomness, the techniques of circuit bending have been commonly associated with noise music, though many more con

Auduino – Granular Synthesizer

The Auduino is an interesting little project that is perfect as a first sound experiment with the Arduino. Its simplicity doesn’t make it boring at all, this little guy is capable of a wide variety of sounds. It’s a granular synthesizer. Granular synthesis is a method that uses small sound particles or “quanta” to generate complex waveforms. As soon as I had managed to get some LEDs blinking a
