I like the categories in the Building forum but there's no place for gadgets and tools and tinkering.
For instance... for months I have been trying to find help online to build a Coolbot clone with slightly different controls for my specific needs. I posted on over 10 forums related to Arduino and Raspberry Pi. I have yet to get a single comment.
So... I decided to buy a Pi 3 Model B, power supply, case, sensors, a resistor and led display and learn to program python myself.
I am currently learning on AskPython.com and CodeCademy.com and loving it. Who knows how many weeks, months or years away from making my own controller but I am doing it.
I also wish to share this with people but there's not a good spot to post things like this. Being a welder/fabricator my whole life I am also building a lot of tools from scrap, salvage and junk that rival my expensive shop equipment. To me this is vital information others could use.
So to make a long story short....
Please add Gizmos, Tools or Gadgets to the Building forum.
