Fixing Baofeng UV-B5 broken battery latch using 3D printer

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/9740

I’ve got UV-B5 years ago. It survived lots of use and still served fine. There was one glitch – in some moment latch that keeps battery locked was broken. Radio was still usable but it happens from time to time that battery slips out of socket and radio silently turns off. It was quite annoying but hardly fixable issue.

Until today.

As I recently got myself 3D printer (Prusa I3 MK3S) I get to an idea to model and print replacement part. As every experienced computer expert, I first looked if someone else already did that. And indeed, Thingverse member Olex had the same issue and already did modeling. […]

36V CNC Spindle Motor Driver

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/9675

Hobby CNC machines are usually based on Arduino/Woodpecker CNC controllers with cheap motor drivers and 775 spindle motors. Motors are specified to run on 36V but CNC machines usually run it on 24V. That means motors run on slower speed than what they can do. Some controllers are able to run 36V but 24V power supplied are delivered with them. Newer Woodpecker CNC controllers are specified to run on 24V only.

Some specifications claim that 775 motor used for spindle runs at 3000-6000 rpm when powered at 24V and gets up to 9000 when powered at 36V. I wanted to run spindle at maximum possible speed for better milling results. […]

CNC Clamp Screw Locking Improvement

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/9634

With hobby mini CNC machines you get simple and very cheap clamps that are not easy to use.

It is hard to fasten it because screw turns along with nut, and as screw head is in T-slot of bead it is not easy reachable to block turning.

This is small rectangle peace you can attach to screw head that will block it turning within T-slot.

It makes using clamps much better experience.

You may make it from mdf, wood, plastic, metal, whatever you like.

Dipole Antenna Center Insulator for SO239

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/9625

Building dipole antennas is always some kind of improvisation. Center insulator is quite simple and may be made in short time with jigsaw and drill.

As I jumped in CNC world I need some simple tasks to learn how to use FreeCAD and other software. So, dipole center piece is ideal just for that. I’ve finished project and learned a lot in the process.

Finished projects is uploaded to Thingverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4149187

You may use CNC mill or 3D printer to make this part. Pay attention to use material strong enough to survive possible strong forces.
