Yes! A resounding yes! This is a field that I am just getting into and knowledgeable tutorials from an expert would be like a dream come true. Especially, directly for application in the field that I want to apply it to.
I know this was from a while back, but YEA!!!!! I'm absolutely interested. I did quite a bit of soldering on new RGB lighting for last year, I found through trial and error what worked for me. I know very little about resistors, capacitors or relays.
No official list, as such... but the second episode of Electronics Essentials is in production (these things don't make themselves! LOL).
It will focus on various components, like capacitors, relays and transistors, along with some capacitor safety tips. We've already caught one good spark in the act. Sorry I haven't been able to crank these out as fast as I'd like, but there's a lot involved and with only two of us to work on them, including writing, principle photography, FX work, and animations for some of the graphics, along with editing... it takes time.
This next tutorial will include some stuff on soldering, since the whole thing will run through the different components, and end up with a complete circuit, assembled and working. Had to try to keep it simple, but this one seems to have taken on a life of its own... oh well.
I can build a static prop very well but I kind of such at motors. How do I wire up a wiper motor and hook it up to make a seesaw go up and down? My plan is to make a haunted playground addition to my graveyard this year.
