A couple of bargains for your Fucking Machine

As I said in my last post I am building a no expenses spared industrial strength fucking machine. I bought a 1500 watt linear power supply and it has a built in 5 volt supply which is convenient. However I just got a great deal on some DC to DC converters that can be used if you build your own power supply and do not want to use a little wall wart for the logic supply. I think they made a mistake because I got packages of 6 of these things for $5. So I got 18 for $15. They must have corrected the listing but they did honor the price when I ordered. Still a bargain at this price.

Here is a chance to save big if building a Shagmatic. I am not crazy about building Shagmatic boards and providing support for the ones I sell. I make a few dollars but … If you want to get by without buying a board, you can make your own with the following breakout board. It was made for a different microcontroller than the Teensy I use so the labeling is totally wrong. It does provide screw terminals for all pins on the Teensy 3.2 with a couple left over. If you want to use a 3.5 or 3.6 you can use the extra two pins. My Shagmatic board makes it easy to connect the RJ cables but you can find sockets with pigtails or make your own with keystone connectors. In fact I will probably use keystone sockets in my new machine so I can put the connectors in an ideal position. You can make all the connections to the Teensy with screw terminals. It will take a little effort figuring out the pin connections but all the necessary information is in the sketch source code. Even if you don’t use the following board for a Shagmatic fucking machine, it is useful for all your Teensy projects. At $6 the cost is less than buying the screw terminal headers pin headers and prototype board. I made a few of these in the past and wish I had known about these little boards. The quality is very good.

check the “resource” page for a doc on building your own Shagmatic using this breakout board.
