New Hive13 Project – Meltdown

November 26th, 2009 3 comments

This is another project initiated by PlayerTwo.  This is an older arcade game called Meltdown.  The way the game works is the game will move a goal box up and down a center tube.  Inside the center tube is a radioactive sample that the gamer must keep centered inside the goal box by adjusting the flow of the air through the center tube.

The main problem at the moment is that the goal box is on a cable that keeps getting snagged and is a bit stretchy so it slips.  Once this problem is worked out there is a bit of surface work that needs to be done.

First of the flouresent lights mounted

November 12th, 2009 No comments

Some of our members picked up five flouresent light fixtures that would normally mount under a shelf in a cubical at the University of Cincinnati surplus sale.  I was down at the hive tonight and decided to look into how we might mount them on the workbench and have worked out what seems to be a good method.

First take the bulb out, then drill out the rivets that hold the light fixture to the case of the light.  Then use the holes left by the removed rivets for screws.  The end result looks fairly nice and seems pretty sturdy.

Now… just need to mount the remaining four light fixtures.
