Symet work continues. Built a FLED solar engine on a 8 pin DIP socket. This way I can swap out the resistor as needed. I'm using 4 salvaged 3300 uF caps from a defunct motherboard and a motor from a junked cassette player.
Pulled two stepper motors and a circuit board from an old dot-matrix printer. I need to work out a driver circuit for the stepper motors.
Got sample LM7121 chips in the mail. These are for an amateur radio project.
