Just a science project for a 14 yr old a simple emergency frequency scanner. Is there a kit or something?


Nothing that Ive seen for a scanner, probably too advanced for a 14yo. Usually an AM/FM radio or other type solar kits, try this link. I'.m sure you'll find somehting interesting. I remember when I was 14, we couldn;t afford these types of things and I would have loved to have had them. Good luck on the project. You can also Google solar powered kits to see if anything else comes up, I'm sure their are 100's if not 1000's of kits out there. http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_trkparms=65%253A12%257C66%253A1%257C39%253A1%257C72%253A1234&_nkw=science%20fair%20kit&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_pgn=2 http://www.hobbyplace.com/science/solar.php

You sent a new button;cause old wouldn,t push in;new one dosent


Hello Ebet: Sounds as if the problem is either not the button, or the button is not installed correctly. This is one of those times when you'll need to carefully dismantle the unit, and keep the parts organized. Look at the function of each part, and make sure that it is working as required. When you find the problem, it should be very evident, and you will then need to re-assemble it, making sure that each piece is correctly installed and functioning. It is both fun and satisfying. Enjoy

Makita ML 140 torch. Old battery would not hold a charge as it was very old. Torch works well with a new Makita PA14 battery. But the handle gets quite hot and I need to dismantle it to find the problem. One would not expect heat from the handle but rather from the head. I have undone the screws but the swivel part also has to be removed for access. What is correct procedure? I am radio technician Thanks, Dave B.


Remove the lens, and bulb holder. look down into the cavity, and you will be able to see the spring loaded pivots. Find sonething narrow to push them in with, so that you can remove the head. here is my fix (with photos) for the 18v version
