New blog post (as of yesterday): The Best of 2021 https://famicoman.com/2022/01/04/the-best-of-2021/
Thanks for the help all, it does seem to be some type of impact driver. Turns out it works fine, I just had to apply pressure to the shank when pulling the trigger!
Anyone know what this #tool is? Motor definitely runs but the end does spin or otherwise move at all. Seems there is a socket in there, but don't know if it is supposed to be. There is a 2-pos switch on the side and both positions run the motor, so I'm guessing some sort of impact driver?
I need to disassemble the business end to see what's going on, but I feel like by owning this I have become a minor character in a dieselpunk story.
Oh hey, I moved and have been busy. Here is a picture of my working on my own analog #catv network using some blonder tongue agile modulators. I also have a QAM modulator and some old analog scrambling gear to mess with. Analog TV is a lot of fun!
Updated http://dialup.world with info for what I'm doing! I'm sure I'm doing something incorrectly but it all sort of works.
Tonight I ported @firstname.lastname@example.org 's Uxn VM to the MegaGRRL hardware (my ESP32-powered VGM player). Seemed like it would be fun, and it was :)
Here is a little demo...
Had to lower the screen resolution (not enough RAM for full screen framebuffers!), but it has sound, output through the YM2612's DAC register. D-pad emulates a mouse. Also had to do a bodge to the drum-rack example to get it working on the lower resolution.
Don't know how I had so many missing/incorrect words in the last toot, but I think it still makes enough sense.
