Yes indeed, CNC I built last year. That's way more of a challenge as I had zero experience and all built without drawings.
Absolute fun to get it all done and working though.

Full build thread: http://www.ibuildit.ca/ibuildit-forum/v ... php?id=622

I like iBuildit as you might have noticed. Very nice group of regular contributors and lots of ideas and suggestions

Cheers

I've been reading that site for a few years now, I may even have got my inspiration for an inverted drum sander from there.

Back in Thailand again the electrical system has been mostly sorted out, the continuing problem is that the circuits that are supposed not to go through the ELCB do at the moment.

We did have a situation where the air-conditioning circuit was supposed to be a 4 mm² cable was a 2.5 mm² and one of the light switches wasn't working correctly but that's all been sorted out now.

We went to SuperRich in KK to change money and lost about 2,700 Baht on the deal but we did have a fly through on AirAsia from Tokyo to Khon Kaen so overall it was probably worth the expense.

Just a heads up if you are flying through to Khon Kaen with international baggage it will all be x-rayed, however if you change planes in Don Muang and have a domestic flight up to Udon or KK them you have a good chance that your baggage will not be x-rayed in Don Muang.

We were shopping in DoHome in ThaiWatsudu and while we were checking out we saw these to mats and you can see why we decided we just had to buy them.

With the electricity sorted out we can finally get the helicopter fans up and functioning and I also put the TriStar up but we're not sure if it's actually going to stay there. We do need one more fan for the balcony but we will probably use one fan which was supposed to go in the living room and move the TriStar into the living room/kitchen.

I managed to find 12 watt LEDs which fit into the helicopter fans but the Tri-Star has less space so they don't fit there

We have found a 100 W LED light in Udon in ThaiWatsudu when we were shopping in March, the only problem was that we couldn't find the light fitting for it, it is an E40, however we found it in DoHome and so we now have one 100 W LED as a test in the workshop. You can see the comparison between the 100 W LED and the 2x12 W LED's that are in the helicopters

Today's activity was fitting the 16 9 W LED lights into the double-height ceiling area. These can be switched in 2 banks so allowing owner light levels without needing dimmable lights.

Just plain jealous with your workshop Jerome.
Looks like the place to spend lots of time.

Putting up one of the helicopter fans

A little assembly is required:


Threading the security wire and electrical supply

Wire stripping

Attaching bootlaces terminals, this isn't necessary but if ever I need to move the lights it is more secure

You have been watching too much G.O.T. with a portcullis like that. Are you expecting a seige at some time?

I didnt see you install a remote sensor into the fans; are they all individually switched?
but those strippers look the bogs dollox :wink:

How effective is the downdraft from fans so high up. Mine are 3.6m up and no where near as good as a floorstanding fan that will blow a sheet of paper off the bed on the lowest speed from 4m away

You haven't seen anything yet. The main loading bay door is almost double the size. The tools in the workshop could run to more than couple of million baht. G.O.T.?

They are MrKen fans so they all have remotes

essential tool when you need to strip 200 wires to the same length of varying thickness

High speed air isn't the definition of a good fan, your floor standing fan is probably 20 to 30 decibels louder (each 3 decides is double the volume). The fans in the 100 W lights are louder than these and they are small computer ones. I would say that the helicopters are as close to silent as it's possible to get even on high speed. I've got a floor standing fan that is similar to yours and for sound it would probably give a 747 a run for its money.

The only way you know they are on is the air movement.

Also it's going to be a wood workshop, so just imagine what that would be like with your fan.
All I can really say is that although they probably cost somewhere between 5 and 10 times the cost of regular fans I would not change my decision. The other factor is that they are DC so use 1/10 th of the electricity of an AC fan.

(Edit in fact the price is actually only a little higher than other makes)

My architect liked the idea and asked if I would mind him using it. I said no problem just credit me.
