    12v DMX relay

    I built three of these kits to control fog machines....Rough cost was about $65-70 each for the kit, case and other parts and about two hours to drill case, solder, assemble...I don't see any reason why the relay can't be changed to something higher current if needed. It might not fit on the...

    Wooden Water Tower - Creating Cylinder

    I guess it's a tradeoff of layup time versus making and assembling the plywood rings. If the diameter is over 4' it will require multiple pieces of plywood ring pieces cut out and assembled as well - 4' or less probably a better way and faster. I would think the rings would need flat sides cut...

    Wooden Water Tower - Creating Cylinder

    I think I would build this from 6-8" wide strips of lauan with the desired bevel cut on each edge and make a cradle type jig with the required radius of a section of the wall and then lay them down and glue sections together, maybe a quarter or eighth at a time. Once the sections are done...

    NSI Melange Pro help needed!

    There are two GO buttons as you are probably aware (for C and D autofaders). Is the cue list loaded into the correct autofader? The loaded autofader is indicated on the screen with a "*" as the active one. Never encountered this problem before. I have experienced weird cue lists after a number...
