Yea, I got a Bridge Port clone and I converted into
CNC. I've done lots of clocks, gear, lithopanes
signs, and coasters.
This last Christmas I made all the ladies in out
family a corian board with all the kitchen measurements
on it. That was fun.
I'm lazy, once I make something it's fun to see
another one with little effort.
The last line is Days/Hours/Minutes.
I hope to get a TFT Display that will allow just
a little more explanation.
I got the Spark Fun I2C Keypad hooked up and working.
Only takes 5 lines of code compared to the matrix style
that takes at least 20 lines.
The advantage of the Spark Fun keypad is it has a little
processor and memory on board. Similar to a computer.
Hold the key down and you get multiple entries. On the
down side it cost 3 times more.
Mounting components hope to get pictures next week.
Looking for another project;
Thinking of Arduino with Gyro so you can see on your
phone how level equipment is.
Still thinking, field work is rapidly approaching.
