Circuit Bending Club every Tuesday 6pm – 9pm!

Previously, another member of BV Studios ran a similar group and it was SO GOOD. There seems to be interest from other members of Hackspace to join :)

I’ve had a good rummage through existing equipment (mainly eletrical equipment), and we need some additional bits to create basic circuits, bend pre-made circuits, build synths etc…

It’s a pretty chilled club… ZERO experience needed. I managed to build a circuit in a couple of hours with absolutely no knowledge 🙂 learn as you go skill-sharing kind-of thing, everyone welcome!

Breadboards x 20 (£19.44): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Strip-Board-Printed-Circuit-PCB-Vero-Prototyping-Track-Packs-of-5/261199157440?hash=item3cd0aed8c0:m:mDZYtyKIelPhIfrJ34_SRVg

3-pin potentiometers (log) x 20 (£15.96): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5-x-50K-Logarithmic-Log-Splined-Potentiometer-Pot/262539012216?epid=1278870888&hash=item3d208b6878:g:96YAAOSwnK9ZXMIN

Headphones x 3 (£36.24, to test circuit, rather than having all circuits playing out loud at the same time!): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JVC-HARX330-Full-Size-Over-Ear-Stereo-Headphones-Black-2-5M-Cord-For-DJ/202335146187

AUX Speakers (will check poundland etc. as shipping was ridiculous)

9V batteries (will check Poundland before purchasing these from ebay due to shipping, otherwise £20 for 20 from ebay) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-Duracell-9V-PP3-Industrial-Procell-Batteries-Smoke-Alarm-LR22-E-BLOC-MN1604/181933810462

Light sensitive sensors x 20 (£4.48): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/20PCS-Light-Sensitive-Resistor-Photoelectric-Photoresistor-LDR-CDS-5mm-GL5516-UK/352767630080

Fine point permenant markers (£2.40): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-X-EXTRA-FINE-TIP-PERMANENT-MARKER-PENS-BLACK-CD-DVD-Marker-Pen-Best-Price/273475212724

TOTAL = £138.94

It kind of already slots into the space in terms of drawers etc! However, it would be great to keep the club's equipment separate by utilising a project box or two for existing projects if people want to leave them here. (2 project boxes have been put aside for CBC!)
