No investor can escape occasionally buying a bad stock. It’s painful watching a stock tumble and realizing that it’s unlikely to ever recover. Or even worse, doubling or tripling down before throwing in the towel. In many cases, it’s not all that obvious that a stock should be avoided. In some cases, though, it’s very […]

The changing face of retail has forced mall owners to get creative. That’s meant filling space with businesses that never used to be in a mall. That includes cosmetic service providers, as well as coworking spaces, hotels, and activity-based companies that offer experiences. In addition, some digital-native brands, like Warby Parker and Casper Mattress, have […]

We’ve all heard that malls are dying. In an Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN)-dominated world, how can a boring old mall hope to eke out another day? Much less often do we hear about the malls that are adapting to meet the e-commerce challenge, and in that discrepancy lies opportunity. In this week’s episode of Industry Focus: Consumer Goods, host […]

First soldering irons are often of the Radioshack or Maplin firestarter variety. They’re basically wall power shorted across a nichrome heater or similar with some inline resistance to make it harder to burn down the house. You plug them in, the current flows, and they get hot. Done. If you stick with the hobby for a while, these eventually get replaced with something like the venerable HAKKO FX-888D or that one Weller everyone likes with the analog knob. These are much improved; having temperature control leads to a more consistently heated tip and much improved soldering experience. Entering the electronics workplace one comes across the next level of quality soldering iron: high end HAKKOs, Metcals, JBCs, and the like. Using one of these irons is practically a religious experience; they heat in a flash and solder melts while you blink. They even turn off when you put the handpiece down! But they’re expensive to buy (hint: think used). What’s a hobbyist to do? [SergeyMax] seems to have had this problem. He bit the bullet, figured out how the Metcal works, and made his own base. This is no mean feat as a Metcal might look like a regular iron but it’s significantly more complex than ye olde firestarter. The Metcal magic is based on a oscillating magnetic fields (notice the handpiece is connected via BNC?) interacting with a tip bearing a special coating. In the presence of the changing field the tip heats up until it hits its Curie temperature, at which point it stops interacting with the magnetic field and thus stops heating. When the user solders, the tip cools by sinking its heat into the part and drops below the Curie temperature again, which starts the heating again. It’s like temperature control with the sensor placed absolutely as close to the part as possible and a nearly instant response time, without even a control loop! [SergeyMax] has a much more thorough description of how these irons work, which we definitely recommend reading. So what’s the hack? Based on old schematics and some clever reverse engineering from photos [SergeyMax] built a new base station! The published schematic is as rich with capacitors and inductors as one could hope. He didn’t post source or fab files but we suspect the schematic and photos of the bare board combined with some tinkering are enough for the enterprising hacker to replicate. The post contains a very thorough description of the reverse engineering process and related concerns in designing a cost efficient version of the RF circuitry. Hopefully this isn’t the last Metcal replacement build we see! Video “walkthrough” after the break. Edit: I may have missed it, but eagle eyed commentor [Florian Maunier] noticed that [SergeyMax] posted the sources to this hack on GitHub! Thanks for the tip Freddie!

A laptop computer or simply laptop (also notebook computer or notebook) is a small mobile personal computer, usually weighing from one to three kilograms, depending on size, materials and other factors. While the terms “laptop” and “notebook” are often used interchangeably, “laptop” is the older term, introduced in 1983 with the Gavilan SC. “Notebook computer” […]

Another weekend comes to an end. Let us take a few moments to reflect. I choose to start this off by bitching. Have I complained to you about my dirt yet? I may have.. but I don’t care. I recently purchased 5ish yards of composted horse manure from a semi-local fellow who recommended himself on […]

It is 2019 and the majority of our modern lives are lived out online. Not having internet access in this day and age would be a huge disadvantage and it’s just not acceptable on my homestead. Being outside of the city, the options for internet service are quite limited, but they do exist. In my […]
