I just wanted to let everyone know I have started a new video series called “Funway into SME” (Surface Mount Electronics)
What I am doing is going through the old DSE Funway volumes 2 and 3 and converting them into modernised versions of the original projects, including updating the circuit’s to remove components difficult to source. And also add some power efficiency.
As the series progresses I’ll post a link to each video in the series. I have even had to create my own funway videos to provide the needed building blocks for the more advanced projects, due to changing the way components interact in the old circuits.
Part of the series is first showing how to hand solder Surface Mount Components then progress onto using stencils and board heater/reflow ovens.
And as each project video gets released, I'll be running a give away competition for each one of the projects!
The introductory video can be found here
So the first project video is up its a long 48 minute video, but over the next few days I'll also release it as 3 separate videos for those that want to watch separate sections at a time.

The above video will also be released as a three part video over the course of the week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday check back on the play list for when they go live youtube.com/playlist
Project 2 - The Ding Dong Doorbell: Part 1 is now live, the assembly and testing video will be out once the components arrive from element14
Project 3 - The Universal Timer: Part 1 is now live, the assembly and testing video will be out once the components arrive from element14
