Here are a few hobby projects I have been working on using the Open Source Arduino processor. A number of more recent projects use various ESP8266 processors mostly Wemos D1 mini. These projects have yet to be documented and posted here.

Check out the sub pages below this one for projects that have been written up.

  • Chicken Coop Controls

  • CNC Lathe

  • DS18B20Solo Library for Arduino

  • Egg Incubator

  • Gasifier IR

  • Gasifier Monitor

  • GasifierGraphing

  • Hydroponic Controls

  • Solar Oven Tracker

  • Stock tank control

Other newer projects which have not been written up yet.
Refrigerator size egg incubator which can also be changed to be a cold storage fridge, sweet potato curing setup, ...
Chick heater, 2'x4', with cell phone monitoring and temperature adjustment. Uses Blynk and Wemos D1 (ESP8266)
Cell phone control to turn an electric fence on and off when repairs are needed. Uses Blynk and Wemos D1 (ESP8266)
Dust collector control and automated blast gate operations using a WiFi MESH network. Uses Wemos D1 (ESP8266) and painlessMesh. In progress.
Sump pump delay timer which avoids very short pumping times for use with my very small sump pit.
