Here you will find details of completed (or as completed as they are going to be) projects. All the related documentation I have for each project is here.
Work In Progress
Like all mad scientists, I’ve got more projects on the go or sitting on the “back burner” than the mind can comfortably comprehend. Some of these are waiting for inspiration, parts, funding, or just the enthusiasm to get on with them. I’ll release technical details as I go along but it goes without saying that you construct, build and ticker with any of my ideas and designs at your own risk, with the additional risk they may not actually work or get completed.
I do a lot of prototype work with breadboards and I will list designs and projects that can be built on breadboards. You will also find hints and ideas that can make using breadboards easier.
Sometimes I stumble across a tool, component or gizmo that I think is worthy a review.
Help & Tips
In this section I will list any pearls of wisdom, datasheets, advice and information. In fact, anything that I personally don’t want to forget and that I think others may find useful.
Here you will find useful reference information.
Here you will find documentation, manuals, instructions and other hobby related documentation that I don’t want to lose.
Some of my projects are more software than hardware related and details of these will be found here.

I’m now half way though the second day of setting this new website up and I think I’m getting there. I know how the site should look, and I think I know how to bend WordPress to do what I want. I’ve got some issues with the colours; I still don’t know why I’ve got […]
So, there’s a lot going on with this site right now. For financial reasons I’ve had to abandon my Weebly hosting as they were increasing their prices and wanted to charge me a extra monthly fee if I uploaded video clips. I couldn’t justify the increase so decided to jump ship and and move in […]
What can I say… I’m a busy chap. I’ve been so busy with work and a large personal project that I’ve not really had much time for “fun” things, that said, it’s funny how one thing leads to another. I’ve been working on an all consuming huge project and I needed to take a break. […]
I’ve been insanely busy over the last few months. The human malware crisis has kept me busy at work and I’ve got so many projects on the go that I don’t know whether I’m coming or going half the time… so I thought I’d add another couple of projects to the pile to keep things […]
So I’ve been asked to build, what’s being called, “the evil genius control desk”. In reality it’s a studio lighting and audio control solution that has some unique features. The studio space in question is divided into several areas and split over two levels. It needs multi-channel lighting and audio control for each area, and […]

Christmas eve the river burst it’s banks and flooded the house and workshop. I’ve been dealing with the fallout from that ever since. Thank […]
