The first of a series of noisemakers is just finished.It's powered by a Miller solarengine.Four former phone bells are used mounted on metal rods salvaged from old printers.

The PuMa project,progress report.....

It's progressing slowly but surely.I've made the wooden housing,placed the copper pipe on it,built the Pummer circuit(I'm reusing an existing magbot circuit)and put the coil and solar cells in place.
Unfortunately I can't really test it until next weekend......these days with not enough daylight are not useful for experiments with solar cells.......
