This is one of the projects I am quite excited about. I hope you can make it work Nick. You need a mechanical part drawing as well. Also, your circuit part is a bit simple. I can count the solenoid as a circuit component but then you would have to come up with more complicated mechanical contraption. It is your call.
This was an initial drawing. Tonight I'm going to be in the lab and will be updating the blog to the current version that is more complex.
I really like your RB setup Nick. I also like how you were creative enough to come up with a solenoid.
Nick, I really like the ideas you have for your RG setup. The solenoid was a genius idea. It is going to be tough to follow your setup!
I love the idea behind your circuit. looks complicated and creative. I can't wait to see the solenoid.
I love the idea of the solenoid, however I feel that your system was not very complicated, and some parts of your schematic to be unclear.
