Hi, I'm Ian M,

I'm just another RML member who's reasonably competent with electronics, including digital and MCUs, computers and mechanical stuff, after a couple of decades in the consumer electronics service trade.

Other interests include sailing and boat maintenance - not that I do much nowadays - and reading SF. I used to be seriously into Sinclair 8 bit computers, and still have a fair bit of vintage Sinclair kit, in various states of operability. I also have a few vintage PCs.

My motto should probably be: "Knows entirely too much about not enough subjects!"

My main project last year (2022) was assembling, tuning and upgrading a £99 3D printer, and learning the necessary software to fully use it.

I'm collecting my OpenSCAD notes here.

I've also done my Lathe induction (Thanks IanB!) and am learning how to use it effectively.

I'm collecting my CJ18A mini-lathe notes here.

I've also got some notes on Running Atmel Studio 4 on Win10.

Last year I was doing some stuff with a WiFi 'tethered' Arduino robot.
