Not sure if this is the right place to put this but it does pertain to tube bending and that is fabrication so here it goes (if not please move). I few months back I came across a thread of offroadfab.net where somebody made an Arduino controlled DRO (digital readout) for their tube bender and it got me thinking. Over the past few months I have tinkered, fought, and got my own version "kind of" working. In the end I would like to make my own PCB shield for the uno and put everything in a nice box.
- LED indicators
- Pressure Switch and Reset Button w/LED
- Rotary Encoder
- Auto shutoff solenoid
What doesn't work:
- Keypad - for entering intended bend angle. Right now this is doing weird things and I don't know what or how to fix.
Below is a short video of everything as it sits today. If anybody is interested I would be more than willing to share my eagle files, Arduino code, etc.
Big thanks to Adam_Gardiner and steelman for your thoughts and help.
