The purpose of this site is mainly to provide a space for various projects I'm working on, together with anything else vaguely interesting that I might come across. Untill recently it was hosted at The University of Exeter with some of the images and larger files being hosted by Nick Walton ( http://area51.endoftheinternet.org/) as a way around the 10MB limit imposed by the University. Since I am graduating this year it has now been moved to www.fasthosts.co.uk
A major part of this is the trike, a project that was begun sometime about Easter 2005, the main trike page is here. For all other stuff look in the list below.
A bit about me
The trike as mentioned above
The jet engine/pyromaniacs dream - Updated December 2010
An excercise bike/pedal powered generator
The battery-powered Arc Welder
A plasma cutting power supply
Coming soon - Compressor, power hacksaw, air-carbon-arc cutting and a tube bender.
A 14 V 25 A charger/power supply
Various electronics will be added soon. To include: 25 amp 12V charger, various timer circuits, a HF arc starting box for tig welding/plasma cutting, fluorescent lamp drivers.
A program for calibrating thermocouples. Probably the first useful program I've written, but most likely only of interest to a very small group of people. It's released under the two-clause BSD license. For more information see the included readme file.
Some links to various sites that have inspired some of things on here
Random quotes that I happen to like
Some electronic instrumentation for the trike (speedo, etc)
A second trike
