Placed my order for the rest of my Speeduino components, including the Arduino Mega. Hopefully the parts should be here in a few days and I can get on with assembling the board. From what I understand I still need to run an external controller if I want to run wide band as the Speeduino only has on-board support for a narrow band. Managed to find a suitable controller for $35 -  https://www.14point7.com/products/spartan-2-oem The same company also offer an open source controller as well, should you want to tinker. The open source version includes an LCD display so that you can set it up as a real time display / dash gauge / LM2 substitute.

    My coolEFI board turned up just after my last post but it's just sat there waiting for me to pull my finger out and get on with installing the engine in the bus. I've also picked up some other goodies - A small hand held scope for helping diagnose signal issues. A freescale USBDM bootloader. For flashing firmware and a few other Megasquirt units.

    I've been toying with the idea of buying into a Megasquirt dealership as there's not really anyone doing it here in Aus but it's a bit of an up-front investment, and I'm not 100% convinced at this stage. Will have to see.

Did a couple of little projects in the workshop this weekend. Installed a steel rack to keep all my steel and aluminium stock tidy. Generally this stuff tends to accumulate in various piles around the workshop. Now it is all in one place and easy to get to. The rack simply hooks over the purlins.

    Also made another tidy for the chucks on my drill press. It is surprising how useful a simple bit of wood with holes in it can be.

    Was tired of the mess on my welding bench and figured that I should be working smarter so I knocked up this bench tidy out of scrap offcuts. I feel more productive already.

  • Been meaning to make one of these for a while now. Could never justify the price for the proper version. An old socket, screw driver bit and a bit of turning on the lathe and voila. Works really well and is easy to use one handed, which leaves your other hand free to hold the feeler gauge.
