    I mean friken' lasers! (ways to mark your trike as your own)

    So... My eldest got a laser etcher, and a 3D printer a few years back. She's not terribly inclined to use them of late, having been pursuing a course of study and then covid-19 challenges in completing a course in Paramedicine. She's graduated now, and living the dream of driving the "Wee Woo!"...

    Just a few ideas using a small laser etcher, and a couple of bits of retroreflective tape

    This is what the item looks like using flash photography, but when too close - it's taped down because it wants to curl.

    And, this is what it looks like when you put it a distance out, and let the angles for the flash LED really shine.

    Jon's Warrior Build

    Agreed the buttons and joystick are a challenge. A light touch of silicone to hold an o-ring that just stays inside the perimiter of the rubber pad for the joystick comes to mind.

    Jon's Warrior Build

    Cool. I tend to over engineer my solutions to problems😁.

    Nice build. curious how you plan to weather proof the display and still have use of the joystick and buttons. I see two screw holes which I presume are for a clear cover of some sort?

    Happy new year

    Happy New Year from the nation's capital (Canada of course)! (well, in 7 min or so, as my youngest fires up Animal Crossing on her Switch).

    Hub or mid drive?

    So, while the welder is still gathering dust, and I start to have free time again I'm looking to modify my commercial TerraTrike GranTourismo. They used to have a Falco based hub motor conversion kit, but issued a recall, and have now gone over to the Bosch mid-drive on a replaceable boom...

    Warning UK declare Mild Steel welding as dangerous to your health

    I feel this is a case of "ask me how I know...." A phrase that seems to come up in all of the Standard First Aid courses I take in order to meet Scouting requirements. Thanks for the giggle DannyC! (Just getting caught up after a long absence for a whole host of reasons) DK
