Hi spacekh-I think you contacted us via email about your issue, which appears to be something entirely different. I’ve followed up with via email.
You might look at Alpha Clock Five:Depending on what kind of job you have, our 555 kit could be a good conversation starter:
82 ohms for white, green or blue LEDs (220 ohms for red). You can find that information in the bill of materials on the documentation site here: http://wiki.evilmadscientist.com/Octolively
Thanks for your kind words about our kits! Are there any particular types of kits you’re looking for? Robotics? LEDs? Do you want soldering kits in particular, or screwdriver type stuff? We’ve got quite a few more kits you haven’t tried yet, like the Peggy 2 and the Eggbot. We also carry some kits by other manufacturers we like, such as the Spikenzie Labs Calculator Kit.The default behavior that I see is that the pulse LED pulses until I try to program a chip, whether or not there is a chip in the socket. When I load the bootloader, the prog LED turns on during programming in addition to the pulse LED. The prog LED turns off after programming, and the pulse LED returns to pulsing.
Are you seeing any error in the Arduino window?Are you programming chips successfully?Did you make any changes to the ArduinoISP sketch?What type of Arduino are you using under the ISP Shield?
Hi RonSorry about the missing set screw. Anytime there is a hardware problem, please feel free to contact us and we’ll certainly help out. I would have sent you a replacement, and still will, if you like (just contact us). Just FYI, the McMaster part number for that shaft collar is on your bill of materials, and McMaster lists the set screw size on their website.Lenore
I just followed up on your earlier email message, and as it’s generally better to keep a discussion in one format, let’s stick to email for now.
What are you plotting on? Eggs? Balls? If you are plotting on Eggs, you may want to stretch your drawings by about 50% to account for the elongated shape of the egg. If you’re plotting on spheres, stretching shouldn’t be necessary.
Hot is not good. I suggest you not turn it on again until you figure out what is wrong. A couple of first things to check: is your chip backwards? Is your battery box hooked up backwards?
