Re: Electronics Bar Project

Oh and I had to buy a new dovetail because the 6" RC only comes with one. All the other bigger RC ship with 2 I believe.

Re: Electronics Bar Project

I found it on ADM Thanks. 90 Bucks for the 4 inch plate and the 2 Radius Blocks. I'm gonna look around and see if a used one is out there. Thats what I did for the one on my ES 127.

Here is what I got.

Re: Electronics Bar Project

The regulated power supply arrived and it worked nicely in a quick test. Now I need to add power poles to my Dew-B-Bros dew eliminator and the transformation is complete. Except that I may add a little buck convertor to the USB hub to limit the volts to 12v nominal.

Re: Electronics Bar Project

I thought of that too. My power supply actually reads about 13.3 volts. Concerned me at first but after checking found that it fell within parameters.

Re: Electronics Bar Project

I called Startech about the hub taking 13.8volts and they said it would be fine also.
