A bit of both. I already have opened the box, gotten out what I want and put in some goodies you people can use, but with HAR2009 and after that some personal stuff going on I just haven't come around to sending the box. Wednesday is my day off, I'll try to post pictures and mail the box then. Sorry for my tardiness...

Yeah, of course real life always takes or at least should take priority over hobbies. :)

Was just a bit curious, better for me as well, now I will at least have nice parts to add into the junk-box. ;)

Pump diodes are always of use. :)

However, if you have an entire bag may I suggest the markets of laserpointerforums and photonlexicon, with a good price they would get snatched up immediately.

Argh, again I didn't get around to it :X I did upload the pics, so I can give you that. Clickie = pic in its 15Mpixel full size.

The box, as it arrived at my place.


The box, mostly unpacked. Holy crap, there are quite a lot of goodies inthere!


The remaining stuff.


This is what I took out.

And here's what I put back:

Leds, anyone? These modules all have very bright flux-leds in them, in an 8x8 matrix. Most of the modules have one or two dead leds, though. Use them for the leds or to make your own dotmatrix-display, you decide.


And these thingies are small modules to power e.g. a white led from a low-voltage source, e.g. a single AA.

I'm still quite busy until next week :/ I hope to be able to send it that wednesday.

Box will leave my place next monday and i will post some pics.

Happy holidays and take care!

If Kizmo gets this box going I want to make sure things like this never happen again. I'd Like to get the box back to me and host it from here in a similar way as done with the USA one. This is much safer and cheaper.

Kizmo said that he didn't have the money to send the box to here. Are there people willing to contribute to getting this box moving again?

If you don't like the idea of a virtual box please tell me.

i wonder if MadsKaizer and others would be happy to contribute a little towards the postage to get the box moving again?

Think you have the UK/EU one. If I recall correctly I've sent you a pm for the next person in the list. An alternative option is to use the USA system where all junk is stored centrally so we save on postage. Just tell me what you think is best

Is this thing still going around? I'd love to get it here and maybe add some goodies too! I noticed that the box is in Finland still, correct? Would be nice if it could tour a little more in Finland! ;)

I decided to have the box send back to me. It will be centralized to avoid more mishaps like this. More details will come later when I have the box and found time to post on the wiki.

1 year 4 months 28 days 19 hours 37 minutes 34 seconds later the story continues.


The box is now travelling to Dalus and should arrive in 6-8 days.

Its indeed lot of junk and unfortunately some of the items were damaged at same point.

Removed damaged items:

TFT screen (cracked)
Small colar cells (bent/snapped/cracked)
Unknown circuit boards (missing components, torn traces)

Items out:

- damaged ones
- Game boy + printer
- VU meter
- three LED panels
- Some film caps
- 3x PCI gfx cards and some other pcbs

Items in:

- 2800VAC 1.4µF capacitor from large microwave
- 1µF 4000VDC capacitor from tube transmitter
- 100A 2-pole switch/breaker thing
- Infineon 1200V 600A pulsed half bridge IGBT module FF300R12KE3
- Puck SCRs
- Stud SCR
- 1600V 50A 3 phase rectifier
- 2x factory made Steve Wards DRSSTC boards
- surprise

Box has seen better days but i believe it will stay together since i used half a roll of tape.

And i tried to use as much filler material as possible.


Some pics:
