    Hey guys

    I am new to this place looks awesome
    but i want more fun with ELECTRICITY.
    For school we got a project to make a
    9 volt power supply and i almost had
    full marks.:D

    Although it was fun after the
    project i wanted to build more stuff.
    I cant seem to find any site that can give
    me circuit plans.:confused:

    I was thinking of building
    a secret alarm into my room. Also how
    to make a wireless remote that can make
    a switch from 0 to 1. The list goes on. :rolleyes:

    I can get almost any materials needed.
    We have a great electric shop and i have
    the money for it as well.:p

    P.S If you gents or ladies can link me a site
    or direct me to any help it would be much

    Good to hear you like the site.
    If you have any questions, start asking.
    We will be happy to answer the questions.

    There is also the eBook, see the tabs on the top of the page.
    The eBook can be downloaded using the PDF sign at the right top on the index page of a volume.
    Did you also look at the useful websites thread:
    Useful websites for electronics (Ver. 2)
    Or the RF related links thread:
    RF related links

    Also this site might be of interest:

    this site might help you get started
    if that doesn't do it for you, this one might help

    Not to be rude, just start searching around for the basics, digital logic, transistors, ect.
    with that alarm, look into IR LED's
    happy hunting :)

    We have a book with all the links shown topside. Volume 6 is a bunch of experiments, read that as circuits. The internet is full of projects sites, some are good, some not so much. If you have a question about a project you can always bring it here to ask.

    Me, I like blinky lights. I have several articles devoted to them, my main one is LEDs, 555s, Flashers, and Light Chasers.
