Various Meters

Again, at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I got a grab-bag of meters.

Breadboards and Un-Etched PCBs

Breadboards and Un-Etched PCBs

While at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I picked up a bunch of breadboards and unetched PCBs from a goodie-bag dealer (one with little bags of misc parts for a set price).

LED Bargraphs

LED Bargraphs

While at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I picked up three of these LED bargraph guys. I haven't tested yet to see what color they are, but that will come in time.

3/$2 isn't bad, if I can say so myself. 

USB SD Card Adapter

USB SD Card Adapter

Ok, I got this set of 3 USB SD Card adapters from eBay seller flash-mart.

The picture shows the innards of one, and a full one. They come in multiple colors. They're nice because you can insert an SD card and put the cover back on. I'm thinking in particular about USB hard drives for the MSNTV2s with these.

Laptop Hard Drive Adapter

Laptop Hard Drive Adapter

Well, I got this one (a pack of 5) from eBay seller igozz.

See, this one's simple. You plug a laptop hard drive on one end, and an IDE cable and Molex power adapter on the other, and you have a working internal hard drive for your PC.

Nokia 3310/3330/3390 LCDs (with PCD8544 Controller)

I recently bought two Nokia LCDs from eBay seller talktalkmobiles, and each came with a free Torx-8 screwdriver.
The screens come from Nokia 3310, 3330 and 3390, and have built-in Philips PCD8544 controllers.

Here are some samples I got from Freescale Semiconductor. :cool:

Solar Panel

Solar Panel

Ok, so.. Long story short, our Canadian Tire had a $30 Eliminator 1.8W solar panel on sale for $10 this week. :eep:

Altoids Project Tin

Altoids Project Tin

Here's one of two Altoids cases that I purchased from a local discount store.. $1 each, with altoids and all. I must say, Cinnamon Altoids are stronger than the spicy candy hearts you get around Valentine's Day, but hey, it was all worth it.. For the case.
