Its kind of slow... so how about some fun.
Can you guess what I am building for my display.
http://home.mchsi.com/%7Ejrock642/xmas1/SnowFlakeParts.jpg

8 x 3/8 rebar 30" long
8 x 1/4" rod 24" long bent at 90 degree angle
16 x 1/4" rod 6" long
32 x 1/4" rod 9" long
4 x flat steel 3/16" x 1 1/2" x 6 1/4" long with 3/8" hole

My high power soldering gun.

Thats very bottom end flux core.
Probably cost less than some of your soldering stations.

What could it be.
More clues tomorrow.

An aircraft carrier... hmmm
They come with their own nuclear reactor and that would mean almost unlimited power for lights.

Its an idea I will have to think about.

How does the MIG100 measure up to the CSI 2A? Looks a little clumsy to me!

jrock64
05-04-2008, 10:03 PM
ESD protection appears to be non existent... but not necesary
working temperature is a little hotter at 1400 degrees.
and while CSI works with 40w the MIG generates 90 amps

I've changed my mind. Its a 50/50 call if its a wasssikammakuzza. However i can understand why you think is whosiawhatsit. They are very very similar. I saw somethign like this on ebay.. people where bidding thousands of dollars...

Clearly you’re making your making your own mini tree easels because the commercial ones just aren’t strong enough to hold the 3000 lights that want.

Ok I cant take entire credit for it but I first found the plans for the QuadraPolarJigaHertxRexciter at http://www.area51.com/ it appears the plans may have been classified as the site appears to no longer be available.

CLASSIFIED
When the QPJHR is terroplected in visiation to a quantum singularity and any radio source frictulating at precisely at 88.1 jigahertx
the signal is retroactively jigareflacted to 1000 times the speed of light raching the inhabitants of alpha sentauri before the inhabitants of earth would hear it.
CLASSIFIED

Luckily I downloaded all the plans and will try to relay the exact instructions.
All instructions must be followed exactly and all measurements must be accurate to the jigglemeter or the feedback induced in the singularity could cause it to implode and lets just say that would not be good.
BE CAREFULL!!!

First assemble the four central spars of the QPJHR as shown. The central spars need to overlap the central assembly plate exactly 1.314159 inches.
Set your high power soldering appliance to high to ensure a secure electrical connection of the components.
http://home.mchsi.com/%7Ejrock642/xmas1/SnowFlakeAsm1.jpg

Now attach the outer spar radicycles which you previously bent to exactly 88.1 degrees. Again use high power on your soldering appliance to ensure a secure electrical connection.

http://home.mchsi.com/%7Ejrock642/xmas1/SnowFlakeAsm2.jpg

Now the tricky part. Two of the QPJHR spars are assembled with the first trilicycle mounted at exactly 44.05 degrees to the spar and the remaining two trilicycles are mounted terpendicurar(88.1 degrees) to the spars. On the second set all trilicycles are mounted at exactly 44.05 degrees to the spar. As always use high on your soldering appliance for a secure electrical connection.
http://home.mchsi.com/%7Ejrock642/xmas1/SnowFlakeAsm3.jpg

Well I was so close and had followed all the instructions to the letter and was certain the all my measurements were indeed accurate to the jigglemeter. All was falling into place except the central mounting bolt.
Beacuse the QPJHR radiates and astronomical amount of power only a grade K5 KryptoniumZircoid fastener is strong enough to the QPJHR together when it is in operation.
So close to my goal to beam WIW into intergalactic space from my meager Belkin but foiled by a simple bolt.
I searched EBay and even google with no luck.
No one stocks grade K5 KryptoniumZircoid fasteners

It just isnt safe to operate it without that fastener.
I have temporarly installed a common bolt so I could at least see what it could have looked like
http://home.mchsi.com/%7Ejrock642/xmas1/SnowFlakeDone.jpg

Maye Ill just atach lights to it and add it to my display so it isnt a total loss.
It stands over six feet tall, so I think you should be able to see it at least a half mile away. Perhaps If I built two I could double its range.

Joel, that is a spectacular snow flake! Buy the way, I may have a spare grade K5 KryptoniumZircoid fastener. If you invert the law of inverse proportions, I believe you will see that building another will indeed more than double the distance of the QuadraPolarJigaHertxRexciter. I enjoyed the spin on the intro.

A few questions...

How much does it weight?
Is it all welded, or are the 3 "arms" bolted in the the center so that you can take it apart for storage?
How are you going to make it stand?
Can I have one?

JOel


Build two. At 88.1 jigahertz, you'll need to separate them at exactly 34 jigameters to get the proper dipole arrangement. You'll easily double the range.....

(Word of warning though. The Men in Black are always on the lookout for dipole rebar snowflakes. They notoriously and conspicuously violate MIB part 15...)

17lbs probably 20 with the addition of 400 lights.
all 4 units are mounted with the one grade K5 KryptoniumZircoid fastener... made to be broken down
going to be mounted to the garage wall.


Great Job!

Two should give me adequate reception

The last document I successfully downloaded from http://www.area51.com/ was a classifed schematic that showed an installation of the QuadraPolarJigaHertxRexciter with an adjacent BiParallamOctoTransmitElemnTroids. These were noted to further octoplex the range of the QPJHR.

The classified schematic shows the installation of the QPJHRE and the centrally installed BPOTET.

Since the QPJHR is made from two distinct elements, alternate configurations are possible with all four elements of the same type as shown on the top of the classified schematic. Author has determined for now that the mixed alternate configuration will ensure the best reception at maximum distance.
http://home.mchsi.com/%7Ejrock642/xmas1/QPJHRTS.jpg

Finally I convinced google earth to overfly the top secret installation and they captured this high resolution satellite image of the partially completed QPJHR exposed in a temporary installation.

http://home.mchsi.com/%7Ejrock642/xmas1/QPJHRinstall.jpg

They are coming...:shock::shock: I fear that I have said too much.... :oops::oops:
Do not let them suppress this technology.
It is the right of all intergalactic citizens to to see out blinkey flashey accompanied by WIW.

That area 51 description is to fool spies. Its not REALLY the QuadraPolarJigaHertxRexciter.

Clever disguise in the snowflake configuration, but I'll always wonder about its REAL purpose . . . .

Hmmm....

Looks sort of like a Fringe Area Localizer. But then, I'm probably wrong. Be very careful with that design however. You might cause a main B-Buss Undervolt. :)

It is a fuelamator cyclontron with four alphacite with braineraser extension for zapping scrooges into lighting manic. Their main purpose is to coated the entire world with blinky blinky and control it from the underground lair bathroom.

jrock64,
You might want to lock this thread. Appearantly some don't know you posted the answer in post #24.

RocketRick

Unfortunately, I think your "snowflake" disguise might fail due to it having an octagonal arrangement, rather than the hexagonal symmetry that one traditionally finds in crystallized hydrogen hydroxide.

Be careful!

Ok 8 strands of lights and 500 zip ties later one is finally done.

Initial full power testing looks promising.

Statistical improvement of reception could not be ascertained due to temporary installation at ground level and adjacent corn field that blocked reception of photonic transmission.
