    Still working on Frank_FJS Minigun Supergun Advanced 2.5 (9 pin) Nice easy one today - finishing up the kick harness I was having terrible trouble crimping the X2.54 pins for the kick harness, in the end I gave up and used pliers which was very fiddly and gave a poor resul . My X2.54 crimping...

    Still working on Frank_FJS Minigun Supergun Advanced 2.5 (9 pin) Ooooh boy, those 4.5 hours turned out to be a lot longer than I expected :-) This was more like 20 hours work My OCD was acting up and there was a big gap between "good enough" and "as good as I wanted it to be". Took me several...

    Thanyou - yes that helps a lot Previously I had thought Orange Orange Purple Gold (330M Ohm) But it's clearly Orange Orange Brown Gold (330 Ohm) Would you agree? https://www.digikey.com/en/resources/conversion-calculators/conversion-calculator-resistor-color-code Do you have a similar picture...

    Namco Exceleena 1 + 2 cabinets.

    This is the Digikey BOM for the Namco Exceleena power supply electrolytic caps that I ordered It would probably be sensible to use better caps for not much more money, or basically equivilent caps for a lot less money. But this is a restoration so I selected as close as possible to the factory...

    3D printing day met with good sucess, needs some minor tweaks. Printed these with generic PLA on a Creality Ender 3 Pro I flipped the models to lie flat so it didnt need supports, .2mm layer height, 100% infill Print 1 - the pacifier by Printmaker As others on this board have noted, V3 of the...

    Namco Exceleena 1 + 2 cabinets.

    Power supply is very beautiful, looks like the date of manufacture is Oct 1994. Looks like the villan in the crackly sound and snowy picture story is C23 which is bulging visibly. C13 is also leaking from the bottom. But being 27 years old they are all getting swapped out anyway. And some...

    Thank you to everyone that contributed to this thread - I've learned a lot, especially about safety around fibreglass :-) I've just bought this magnificent beauty in New Zealand and will be giving it a minor restore over the next few months. In very good cosmetic condition all round, not a...

    Still working on Frank_FJS Minigun Supergun Advanced 2.5 (9 pin) Today was a pretty lazy day printing 3D printing Cases - I laid them all out so they would print in one job which will take 14 hours at good quality I have a Ender Creality 3 pro which is about the cheapest 3D printer that isnt...

    Still working on Frank_FJS Minigun Supergun Advanced 2.5 (9 pin) Today was "crimping stuff up" day. I needed to make a CPS2 kick harness, and a 6-pin power cable The CPS2 kick harness is HAS pinout on the Minigun end and standard pinout on the board end the Power cable is custom pinout on...

    Still working on Frank_FJS Minigun Supergun Advanced 2.5 (9 pin) I decided to assemble all of the SMD components (including the LED's) with hot air. In order to get the solder paste to melt "shiny" I had to turn the temp up really high 390 - Im guessing the calibration is off The narrow (5mm)...

    Still working on Frank_FJS Minigun Supergun Advanced 2.5 (9 pin) An hour of practise with the SMD rework gun took me from a mangled mess like the ones in the middle and the left, to a slighly less mangled mess :-) With a bit more practise I can now make a reasonable job of 0603 and 0402 sizes...

    Today I started work on Frank_FJS Minigun Supergun Advanced 2.5 (9 pin). I bought the PCB's from another forum member (thankyou @evilsim). I had never done any SMD work before so I bought one of these hot-air guns KSGER official store on Aliexpress some solder paste from a local supplier and a...

    This thread is to share ideas and learnings from building other peoples projects. I've had a good look and I cant see another like it, mods, if there is please let me know and I'll join onto that instead The idea came about when I wanted a really good Supergun. So decided to make my own based...

    Hello from New Zealand

    First mock-up looks OKish for fit. I used crazydarts case from here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4629721 I'm not super happy with the edge connector being 1.5mm inset from the edge of the case but we'll see how the rest of the build goes.. Boards are coming from Evilsim and parts from...
