    Fog horn circuit

    Hi Justin, I did find this one and gave it a try... However I was not able to get it to work... Not sure what I am doing wrong on it... I'd also like to find one that would work off a 555 timer...

    Looking for a breadboard layout...

    Hi George, It would be nice to have a second look at it... So if you get a chance at it I'd appreciate it...

    Fog horn circuit

    Any know where I can find a circuit schematic for a realistic fog horn?

    Police Siren

    Got it to work as shown with the two 555's and also with the 556... Inserted a 1k pot between the second capacitor and the speaker for volume control... Worked great...

    Is it possible to substitute a 556 chip for the two 555's?

    Looking for a breadboard layout...

    It has been a long time since I read schematics and am having a hard time reading this one... Would anyone here be interested to give a go at putting this circuit on a breadboard layout for me? http://www.circuitstoday.com/flashing-led-unit

    What to do with a motor?

    Now that's funny!!! Seriously Justin you have put a lot of thought into this project and I can't wait to see how it turns out... As for the materials - George has the right idea about looking around for a local metals fabricater - more often than not they have a ton of scrap laying...

    12 volt power sources

    Thanks guys... George I think I will go with the one you suggested... Looks like it is exactly what I am looking for... Again thanks for the help...

    12 volt power sources

    Hi George, Can you post a pic of the plug in DC power supply you are using? I would greatly appreciate it...

    What to do with a motor?

    Correct... You should be able to use the 1/8th chuck... Make sure it comes with a set screw (or two)... When you get it - test fit it... Mark the shaft where the set screw(s) fit and very carefully score the area - this will help the set screw seat properly... BTW that setup above looks great...

    I would have to do the math, but you are right - it is possible... :)

    What to do with a motor?

    If you are going to make a mini drill press out of this I would suggest using the 18 volt power supply and rigging yourself a potentiometer to make it variable speed... yes the part you are talking about is a "chuck" and you might be able to find one at Micro-Mark (www.micromark.com) or Harbor...
