Happy 2017!

Well,it's a start of a new year,and one of my resolutions will be to write more posts(which is a recurring resolution it seems).Over the last week or so I finished my little Matroyska project,now with five pieces.To continue the Joule Thief theme I've also started building another three with vintage capacitors.One will have the option of changing the flash rate :10,20 or 30 uF.
After these are finished I'm planning on starting to make some non electronic things:balancing toys.

New French radio's



Last weekend I added more transistor radio's to my French collection.Three of them can be seen here.I also got a Sonneclair,Pygmy,Reela and a few more Optalix'.So far I haven't tested them yet,but according to the sellers most of them should be working.....we'll see about that.

Matryoshka dolls

Lately I have discovered the matryoshka doll(those Russian nesting dolls) as an interesting holder for projects.I have ideas to use them for a magbot pendulum and a series of flashing Joule thieves.The latter one I'm currently working on.
