5K Potentiometer - Rotary
$0.95
Introduction:

A three terminal resistor that serves as a voltage divider and a variable resistor (rheostat). Also functions as a position transducer when operated by a mechanism. Perfect for Joystick modding.

Description:

The potentiometer can be used as a voltage divider to obtain a manually adjustable output voltage at the slider from a fixed input voltage applied across the two ends of the potentiometer.

Potentiometers are also very widely used as a part of displacement transducers because of the simplicity of construction and because they can give a large output signal.

Potentiometers can also be used as position feedback devices for motion control.

Evaristo purchased one of our blackTooth laser cutters and he added a modification that I believe to be quite useful. The blackTooth comes with a potentiometer to control the intensity of the laser, but Evaristo wanted to add a device to be able to see the measure of this intensity level.
LaserCAD Installation for the Anywells Laser Controller
How to install the LaserCAD Trocen Anywells Laser Cutter Controller and CAD software. The Software to be installed is called LaserCAD and is the software that allows communication between the computer and the laser cutter controller, but it also allows you to draw geometry, add text and images and download that file to the laser cutter controller.
Step 33: Router Mount Part 4
This tutorial is dated, if you are considering a CNC for your personal use, we would highly recommend purchasing a kit that is very stable from our wide range of machines available. This is the final step for the first phase of the router mount. I say first phase, because I will build a vacuum attachment that will also serve as an additional router mount. You will see the method at which I mount the router in this video. Instead of routing out a perfect circle, and we all know how good I am at routing out circles, and squeezing the circle around the router housing, the router mount will come in two parts and act like a vice. I did not want to put any undue stress on the wood by using the squeeze method, but it woks fine. I used it on my last machine and I had no problems and I even used only 1/2" thick MDF for the mount.
