This project monitors the component quantity and press status for an ammunition reloading press. It can be used by reloaders with a Hornady AP press, case feeder, and bullet feeder. It warns of low primer and low powder quantities, and of procedural errors such as powder under/overcharge. It can help make the reloading process faster and safer.
This project used the WorkBench as a stable development base. Keeping the wiring stable was a top priority during development and troubleshooting.
I believe this project illustrates how many Maker projects will evolve - develop and debug on the WorkBench, and then create PCBs and cases if required. In the interim phase, the WorkBench is a great platform to show off the prototype.
THE FUTURE WE MAKE
The Maker Movement is a global phenomenon impacting the future of work, product development,
education and learning, and more. Maker Faire and Make: magazine have been leaders in telling the maker story since 2005. It’s our mission to celebrate and nurture maker culture and the creative spirit.
Phase Dock is proud to be a charter member of the newly established Make Community.
